Results of Operations

Revenues: Total revenues for the first quarter of 2012 were $185.0 million, relatively consistent when compared to revenues of $183.1 million for the first quarter of 2011, and $187.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2011.

Non-GAAP Results: Non-GAAP operating income for the first quarter of 2012 was $38.3 million, or 20.7% 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.
