Good day, ladies and gentlemen, and thank you for standing by. Welcome to the Aehr Test Systems Fourth Quarter Fiscal Year 2011 Earnings Conference Call.

Please go ahead.
Good afternoon, and thanks for joining us to discuss Aehr Test Systems results for the fiscal 2011 fourth quarter and full year. By now, you should have all received a copy of today's press release. If not, you can call my office at (213) 486-6546, and we will get one out to you right away.
With us today from Aehr Test are Rhea Posedel, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer; and Gary Larson, Vice President of Finance and Chief Financial Officer. Management will review its operating performance for the quarter before opening the call to your questions.
Now I'd like to turn the call over to Gary Larson. Please go ahead, Gary.
Thank you, Lasse, and thanks to everyone for joining us today. Before we begin, I'd like to make a few comments about forward-looking statements. Please be advised that during the course of our discussion today, we may make forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties relating to projections regarding industry growth and customer demand for Aehr Test's products, as well as projections regarding Aehr Test's future financial performance. Actual results may differ materially from projected results and should not be considered as an indication of future performance. These risks and uncertainties include, without limitation: World economic conditions; the state of the semiconductor equipment market; acceptance by customers of Aehr Test technologies; acceptance by customers of the system shipped upon receipt of a purchase order; the ability of new products to meet customers' needs or performance described; the company's ability to maintain sufficient cash to support operations, the impact of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami upon the company's operations; the company's development, manufacture and marketing of a commercially successful wafer test and burn-in system; and the potential emergence of alternative technologies, each of which could adversely affect demand for Aehr Test's products in the fiscal year 2011. We refer you to our most recent 10-K, 10-Q and other reports from time to time filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for a more detailed description of the risks facing our business and factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from projected results. The company disclaims any obligation to update information contained in any forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances occurring after the date of this conference call.
