At the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2013, we were generating revenue from 168 separate programs and had 51 distinct customers, up from 135 programs and 36 customers a year ago. We also continued to diversify our future revenue base during the first quarter of fiscal 2013 by winning new programs involving solar energy and power management products.

"While we continue to face global macroeconomic uncertainty, we believe our unique combination of world-class engineering, global logistics and world-class production capabilities in Mexico, China and the United States continues to provide us with competitive advantage. We expect to continue to see our new programs ramp up, our market share increase and our revenue base diversify. As we grow our business over the long term, we remain focused on maintaining outstanding customer service, carefully managing our operating expenses and maximizing our return on invested capital."
