CEO statement and outlook

"Our fourth-quarter sales came in
at €4.3 billion, which is above our guidance. This was mainly due to
additional DUV shipments and upgrade opportunities. We shipped nine EUV
systems and recognized revenue for eight systems in the fourth quarter.
Our fourth-quarter net bookings came in at €4.2 billion, including €1.1
billion from EUV systems (net six units).

"The total net
sales for the year was €14.0 billion, including €4.5 billion from 31 EUV
systems. For ASML, 2020 was a year of strong growth, both in sales and
in profitability. "For 2021, we expect another year of
growth driven by strong Logic demand and continued recovery in Memory.
The build out of the digital infrastructure and the continued technology
innovation is relevant to the consumer, automotive and industrial
markets and drives demand across our entire product portfolio," said
ASML President and Chief Executive Officer Peter Wennink.

expects first-quarter revenue between €3.9 billion and €4.1 billion
with a gross margin between 50% and 51%, R&D costs of €620 million
and SG&A costs of €165 million. The estimated annualized effective
tax rate is expected to be between 14% and 15% for 2021.

Products and business highlights

  • In
    our EUV business, we celebrated the milestone of the 100th EUV system
    shipment. By end 2020, 26 million wafers were exposed on our EUV
    installed base, of which 9 million in the fourth quarter.

  • In
    our DUV business, we focused on meeting our customers' increasing
    demand for all DUV systems as well as on optimizing factory capacity,
    reducing the install cycle time and supporting the tools in the field
    for maximum productivity. While the first NXT:2050i systems took up to
    120 days to build, at the end of last year we already showed build time
    capability of 60 days over the last five systems.

    We also shipped our first ArF dry system on the NXT platform (NXT:1470).
    On our Twinscan KrF platform, we shipped a record number of systems.
    The overall strong demand for DUV systems is confirmed by a record value
    of DUV bookings during 2020 (€7.3 billion).

  • In our
    Applications business, we shipped the first YieldStar 385 to a customer
    in Q4 and achieved a record year for YieldStar shipments. The YieldStar
    385 offers the latest in-resist overlay and focus metrology, with
    enhanced throughput and accuracy, to meet N3 requirements. Compared to
    previous systems, key enhancements include a faster stage and faster
    wavelength switching, which enable highly accurate overlay measurements
    and tool matching using multiple wavelengths.

    We shipped three eScan1000 Multibeam systems in 2020. With 3x3 beams and
    high-speed stage technology, these systems provide up to 600% higher
    productivity than single beam systems, and will provide customers with
    early process integration capability.
