Gross profit for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010 was 24%, compared to 29% for the prior year period. The decrease in profit as a percentage of sales reflected higher production costs per machine as machines sold during the period were produced at a time of lower production levels. Also contributing to the decrease was a product mix that included a greater amount of our entry-level machines that were in high demand in the Asia Pacific region where competitive price pressure is a strong factor. Gross profit for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010 was 24%, compared to 19% for the first nine months of the year due primarily to increased sales in Europe of our high performance VMX machines. In addition, our increased production levels served to reduce our allocated fixed cost per machine.
