We would like to remind you that during the course of this conference call, we will make forward-looking statements including discussions of business outlook and financial projections for calendar 2013 and fiscal 2014. These forward-looking statements are based on management’s current expectations and involve risks and uncertainties that could cause the actual results to differ material from such expectations.

Thanks So-Yeon. Good afternoon and thank you for joining us. Today, on our call, I will discuss the key financial results for the quarter, then I will turn it over to Mike Cheng our CEO who will review the company’s business highlights and I will follow up with our guidance for the next quarter.

Revenue for the June 2013 quarter was 77.2 million an increase of about 3% from the prior quarter and a decrease of about 18% from the same quarter last year.Our MOSFET revenue was 60.5 million, up 3.6% sequentially. Power IC revenue was 13.1 million up 7% from the prior quarter and our service revenue was 3.6 million or a decrease of 18% from the prior quarter. The increase in revenue quarter-over-quarter reflects growth in AOS’ consumer and communications product areas, primarily in television and mobile devices. The largest regional growth for these applications was in Korea and China.

Our GAAP gross margin was 17.1% for the June 2013 quarter, as compared to 7% in the prior quarter and 26.5% for the prior year. The sequential change in GAAP gross margin reflects the non-recurring inventory write down of 7.7 million and that was recorded in March of 2013. Our non-GAAP gross margins were relatively flat quarter over quarter.

For operating expenses, our GAAP expenses were about 16.1 million for the June 2013 quarter as compared to 18.4 million for the prior quarter and 17.3 million for the June quarter last year.

GAAP operating expenses in the March quarter included 2.6 million in asset impairment charges.

Our income tax expense was 1.1 million reflecting the impact of our fix rate tax structure. The March 2013 quarter reflected a retroactive R&D tax credits.

GAAP net loss for the quarter was approximately 4.1 million or $0.16 per share as compared to a GAAP net loss of $0.52 per share for the prior quarter. This reflected the non-recurring item that I mentioned above in the March quarter.

Depreciation and amortization expenses were $7.1 million for the quarter.The non-GAAP loss for the June 2013 quarter was $0.11 as compared to $0.07 for the prior quarter. The change quarter over quarter reflects primarily the benefit we received last quarter for the R&D tax credits.

Now moving on to our balance sheet, we completed the June 2013 quarter and fiscal 2013 year with cash and cash equivalents of approximately 92 million as compared to 104 million at March 31, 2013, and $82 million at June 30 of last year.

Our net trade receivables were 38.3 million compared to 29.8 million last quarter and 38.9 million last year. DSO for the quarter was about 45 days.

Rate inventory was 68.3 million at the quarter end compared to 67.1 millionfor the prior quarter and 65.8 million for the prior year. Average days in inventory were approximately 95 days for the quarter. The channel inventory was also down at the June 2013 quarter end.
