of total revenues, which compares to $33.0 million, or 18.0%, for the same period in 2011, with the increase in operating income margin attributed primarily to the financial benefits of the restructuring activities undertaken during 2011. Non-GAAP operating income for the fourth quarter of 2011 was $40.0 million, or 21.3% of total revenues. The sequential quarterly decrease in operating income can be primarily attributed to lower sequential revenues.
