David TacelliThank you, Mark, and good morning everyone. During today’s call, I’ll review our first quarter performance and second quarter business outlook, how we’re managing the current business environment, and I’ll also provide in-depth commentary on one of our target markets, power management.As expected, the current environment was challenging as weak economic conditions impact our business consistent with the rest of the industry. We don’t expect any short-term growth catalysts until after the calendar year-end as we are now in the most seasonably weak quarter of our fiscal year. We are now beyond the point where customers will add capacity in anticipation of the holiday build. At this point in time, customers tend to wait until after the Chinese New Year before assessing their growth prospects and test capacity needs; however, we’re optimistic that our second fiscal quarter will represent the low point of this cycle.
