Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable measures under GAAP are in our earnings release and posted on our Web site in the investor relations section. For the upcoming quarter, we will be attending the Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet Conference on February 15th and presenting at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media and Telecom Conference on March 3rd.

Thank you Ken and thanks to everyone joining us today. ON Semiconductor Corporation today announced that total revenues in the fourth quarter of 2010 were approximately $579 million, a decrease of approximately 4% from the third quarter of 2010. During the fourth quarter of 2010 the company reported GAAP net income of $61 million or 14 cents per fully diluted share. The fourth quarter 2010 GAAP net income included net charges of 38.2 million or 9 cents per fully diluted share from special items, which are detailed in schedules included in our earnings press release.

GAAP gross margin in the fourth quarter was 41%. Non-GAAP gross margin in the fourth quarter was 41.2%. Fourth quarter 2010 non-GAAP net income was 99.2 million or 22 cents per share on a fully diluted basis including stock based compensation expense. We exited the fourth quarter with cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash of approximately $765 million, an increase of approximately 203 million from the previous quarter.

We also exited the quarter with the lowest net debt position in the company’s history at approximately $123 million. At the end of the fourth quarter total days sales outstanding were approximately 46 days, down approximately two days compared with the third quarter of 2010. ON Semiconductor’s internal inventory increased slightly from third quarter levels on a day basis to 96 days. Included in our total internal inventory is approximately $16 million of bridge inventory related to our announced closure of front end manufacturing lines.

Net of the bridge inventory our inventory days would have been approximately 92 days at the end of the fourth quarter. As expected, distribution inventories increased slightly to approximately 10 weeks exiting the fourth quarter. Cash capital expenditures during the fourth quarter were approximately $43 million bringing 2010 capital expenditures to approximately $189 million. We currently anticipate total capital expenditures for 2011 of approximately $250 million. Now I would like to turn it over to Keith Jackson for additional comments on the business environment.
