Sales increased by approximately 7% year-over-year and 4% sequentially. On a year-over-year basis, we experienced strength in the automotive, industrial, commercial aerospace and telecommunications and data communications equipment markets. On a sequential basis the Company saw strong growth in mobile devices primarily related to ramp ups of new mobile computing devices. Our strong growth is once again confirmation of the significant benefits of the Company’s diversity, especially given the increasing level of uncertainty in many of the world’s economies. In addition, it is extremely rewarding that the Company’s unique entrepreneurial culture continues to drive an unwavering focus on profitability and cash flow, resulting in another sequential operating margin improvement to 19.5% and strong operating cash flow in the quarter of $176 million. I am very proud of our organization as we continue to execute well.”
