In addition, we have updated the schedules on our IR website, which include the historical quarterly and annual summary P&Ls for continuing operations, as well as historical quarterly and annual information for revenue from continuing operations by both end market and product type.

During the first part of the call, Jerry and Dave will present our second quarter 2012 results, as well as our short-term outlook. The remainder of the time will be devoted to answering questions from our analyst participants.

Factors that could contribute to such differences include, but are not limited to those described in our SEC filings including our most recent quarterly report on form 10-Q filed earlier today.
The forward-looking information that is provided on this call represents our outlook as of today, and we do not undertake any obligation to update the forward-looking statements made by us.

Jerald G. Fishman Well, thanks, Maria, and good afternoon to everybody on the call. Our revenues in our second quarter totaled approximately $675 million, which was up slightly more than 4% sequentially, but down about 15% compared to the year-ago quarter. You might remember the year-ago quarter when ADI revenue peaked, as customers built inventory to reduce the risk of supply disruptions that were widely feared after the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami.
