At the end of fiscal 2012, we were generating revenue from 165 separate programs and had 48 distinct customers, up from 119 programs and 33 customers at the end of the prior fiscal year. We also continued to diversify our future revenue base during the fourth quarter by winning new programs involving robotic, automotive, industrial and gaming products. “Moving into fiscal 2013, we continue to face global macroeconomic uncertainty. Nevertheless, we believe that with our unique combination of world-class engineering and global logistics, together with the cost and logistical advantages of our substantial and expanding production capabilities in Mexico, China and the United States, we will continue to see our new programs ramp up, our market share increase and our revenue base diversify. As we grow our business, we remain focused on maintaining outstanding customer service, carefully managing our operating expenses and maximizing our return on invested capital.”
