Highlight of Business Operations: During fiscal 2007, we financed the purchase of the Santa Clara Property with a $27.9 million mortgage loan. The mortgage loan is a variable rate loan which bears interest at LIBOR plus 90 basis points and changes in the interest rate affect our interest payments. However, concurrent with the mortgage loan, we also entered into an interest rate swap with a notional amount that approximates the principal outstanding under the mortgage loan. We are the fixed rate payer under the swap with a fixed rate of 5.3%. By July 2008, we drew down the total available amount of $12.0 million under a related term loan. Concurrent with the term loan, we also entered into an interest rate swap with a notional amount that approximates the principal outstanding under the term loan.

In August 2009, in order to finance costs associated with the construction of a research center for OTC, we entered into a fixed asset loan agreement with a bank in China. The agreement provides for a fixed asset loan in the principal amount of approximately $20.5 million based on the exchange rate in effect at the time of the loan origination, or the Construction Loan. As of October 31, 2010, we borrowed approximately $17.2 million under the Construction Loan. Interest rate under the Construction Loan is based on an indicative rate as published by the Chinese government, and will be adjusted every September to the then current published rate. Interest rate under the Construction Loan was 5.3% at October 31, 2010. We do not hedge against the risk of interest rate changes for the Construction Loan. However, since the current interest rate is published by the Chinese government and will not be adjusted until September 2011, any hypothetical 10% shifts in yield will not cause a significant adverse impact to our results of operations, cash flows or to our financial position for the three and six months ended October 31, 2010.
