Functions in the Online Annual Report 2015

AIXTRON's interactive Annual Report offers several new functions which we would like to describe here. Our goal is to exploit all possibilities that have been developed for online-presentations in order to enhance your ability to read and work with this report.

The Quick Finder provides you with a short list of sections which you can access directly.


In the full text search, the search engine examines all of the words in your annual report and matches the word supplied by you. As you type the term proposals will be displayed. After selection the results will be shown on the next page ranked by relevance.

The last five pages which you viewed in the Online Annual Report are shown here. In this way you can easily return to one of the pages.

My Annual Report

The function "Store page" can be found on the left site in the service section under "My Annual Report". This enables you to mark the page for later use. Through the "My Annual Report" function you can download these pages as a pdf document. In this way, you can create your own, individualised offline Annual Report.

Table highlighting

This online report provides exclusively HTML tables. A highlighter facilitates your reading of the tables. When you move the mouse over a line, the line will be visually highlighted.

Quick Analyser

The Quick Analyser enables you to compare and analyse key figures. First choose a category, the items and years you want to compare. You can view the development of the figure over the past years in a table format, a bar or a line chart. You can save your selected figures as a excel file or picture.


In the download-center you can download as PDF file the entire report, also subdivided in the chapters and Excel files with tables. Using our download collection you can collect files and download them in one zip file.

Excel Download

Selected tables of this report are provided for download as Excel files as well. You will find the downloadable tables close to the according HTML table in and in the download center.

Chapter Download

For each chapter a PDF download of the according chapter is provided in the service section on the left site of each page.

Recommend page

To send the direct link to a specific page to a friend please click "Recommend page". You also can add a personal text.


You may find that you may want to print pages from the site for future references. Selecting the "Print" button from your browser or the "Print" button at the end of the main content area and directing your output to a printer would allow you to do this. This second "Print" function provides you an optimized version of the content area with the possibility to choose a print version including or excluding pictures. This decreases the time of printing and reduces the consumption of your ink or toner.
