"While our year-on-year decline in revenues was primarily driven by the decline in memory spending and weakness in the LED and bare wafer silicon end markets, we did achieve significant growth in revenues to foundry customers and we had another strong year of Atlas OCD sales. Our focus today is investing in the future growth of the company with leading-edge products developed in close collaboration with the largest device manufacturers in the world. While industry conditions remain soft in the near term, we currently see encouraging signs for a substantial improvement in industry spending plans for the second half of 2013. We believe the investments we are making today will drive incremental revenue growth and allow us to outperform the industry when spending recovers."Fourth Quarter 2012 Summary
