In the September quarter, the non-GAAP tax rate was 12.9%, and the GAAP tax rate was 12.2%. Our tax rate is impacted by the mix of geographical profits, withholding taxes associated with our licensing business, gains or losses on trading securities and a percentage of our cash that is invested in tax advantage securities. We expect our combined forward-looking effective tax rate on both the GAAP and non-GAAP bases to be about 12.75% to 13.25%.To summarize the after-tax impact of the non-GAAP adjustments had on Microchip's earnings per share in the September quarter, share-based compensation was about $0.041, acquisition-related items were about $0.014, losses on trading securities was about $0.006 and noncash interest expense was about $0.006. The dividend declared today of $0.348 per share will be paid on December 5, 2011, to shareholders of record on November 21, 2011.
