Agilent Technologies (A) Company Overview

Agilent Technologies (NYSE: A) is the world market leader in the test and measurement (T&M) business. The company's 16,000 employees serve customers in more than 110 countries. Agilent had net revenues of $4.5 billion in fiscal 2009. Agilent's closest competitors are Tektronix (TEK) and National Instruments (NATI). Similar to other smaller competitors like Lakeshore and Keithley Instruments (KEI), these two competitors have succeeded by focusing on niche markets.

Agilent, on the other hand, is the broadest and most diversified T&M company. Since it was spun off from parent company Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) in 1999, Agilent has undergone a period of significant restructuring during which it divested its assets in semiconductor testing and manufacturing, as well as developed a joint venture in LED lighting technology, in order to rededicate itself back on its core scientific and R&D markets. The advantages of this approach are twofold. First, the R&D market is more stable, as it is usually sheltered from macroeconomic trends. Second, the semiconductor test and manufacturing business is highly cyclical, tied mostly to the ups and downs of the IT hardware industry.
