Thank you, Don. Good morning. Thank you for joining us on our call today. We are very pleased to share with you our results for the year 2010. Overall, 2010 was a very good year for Benchmark. We accomplished a revenue growth of about 15% when compared year 2010 to 2009. Along with the revenue growth, came earnings per shares growth about 52% on a year-over-year basis.We finished 2010 with a strong Q4. As you can recall through the last conference call, we expect some weakness from our computing customers in fourth quarter. However, the sales to the computing sector pick up late in the quarters were stronger than was originally anticipated. Along with these financial results for the year, Benchmark completed two of our strategic goals.Number one, medical Class III device capability in Asia. In November, we announced that our Thailand facility had been approved by FDA to manufacture Class III finished device on behalf of our large Tier one medical customers. This is a significant accomplishment that give us medical customers this capability everywhere around the globe.
