As you are aware, on July 6, 2010, we completed the spin-off of Vishay Precision Group into an independent publicly traded company trading in the New York Stock exchange under the VPG ticker.
Although VPG is an independent company, due to continuing involvement by having common Board members, limited supply agreements, leases and trademark licenses, we will not restate prior financial statement to present VPG as a discontinued operation for U.S. GAAP purposes.
To assist in the analysis of Vishay, including and excluding VPG, we realigned our U.S. GAAP reportable segments segregating VPG into its own segment beginning last quarter.
