I would now like to turn the call over to Jerry. Jerry Turin Thanks, Jim. Before getting into the financial details for the quarter, let me first speak about our business model accomplishments. Since the April 2009 merger of Bookham and Avanex by highlighting our results over the last fiscal year, which has just ended July 3, 2010. Our revenues in the quarter ended July 3, 2010 were 44% higher than our pro forma combined revenues for the quarter ended June 2009. Our non-GAAP gross margin this quarter was 31%, up from 23% pro forma Bookham plus Avanex in last year’s June fiscal quarter. This exceeds the original one year merger target of 30% that isn't set for this quarter at that time. Our scale on operating leverage is beginning to translate to the bottom line. Our non-GAAP operating income for this quarter was $9.6 million, up almost $12 million when compared to a $2 million non-GAAP operating loss for the June fiscal 2009 quarter. You could look at this $12 million year-over-year quarterly improvement as almost $50 million on an annualized basis. These results correspond to a non-GAAP operating income margin of 8.5%. This is significantly higher than our one year merger target of 5% operating income margin. Later, at the end of this call, I will update our operating margin target models.
Now, on to the details for this quarter ended July 3, 2010, our revenues this quarter were $112.7 million, up 11.4% from $101.2 million in the prior quarter. Telecom revenues for the quarter were up over 13% to $98.5 million from $87.0 million in the prior quarter. Revenues from our Advanced Photonics Solutions business were relatively flat this quarter at $14.3 million versus $14.1 million last quarter. We continue to see a strong demand environment for APS and expect to see significant ramps of new market opportunities for APS later in fiscal 2011.Looking back to the second half of this fiscal year that just ended, APS revenues were up over 40% compared to the first six months of the fiscal year. The transition of our APS production from the former Newport fab in Tucson to our other facilities rose fabs in back end is relatively on track and on schedule. However, our production plans for APS during this transition will be from calendar 2009 demand environment assumption. Clearly, demand is much higher than those assumed levels. As a result, we are currently concentrating first on supporting our established customer base while qualifying and ramping our new lines, which may limit APS growth for another quarter.
