Before we begin, let me remind you that the company will be discussing GAAP P&L results and some key non-GAAP results to supplement understanding of the announced merger transaction.

Also as a reminder for everyone, today’s discussion contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Federal Securities Laws. Such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to our ability to consummate acquisition of Astria Semiconductor Holdings, including MicroProbe, our ability to successfully integrate and realize the anticipated benefits of the acquisition. Statements of our own customers’ engagement with newly combined entities, our ability to deliver technology innovation for the advanced probe card industry.
