Highlight of Business Operations:Gross profit was $106.6 million and $92.2 million in fiscal 2011 and 2010, respectively, an increase of $14.4 million, or 15.6%. The gross margin for fiscal 2011 was 52.2% compared to 50.5% in fiscal 2010. Gross margin increased 1.7 percentage points primarily due to product cost reduction initiatives that allowed us to reduce the cost of our products and increase gross profit through purchasing and manufacturing efficiencies during the fiscal year. Favorable customer and product mix, as well as a decrease in the amortization of purchased and core technology as certain intangibles were fully amortized, also contributed to the increase in gross profit during fiscal 2011.

Changes in working capital decreased cash flows by $3.7 million primarily due to an $11.9 million decrease in accounts receivable as the receivables balance increased due to higher revenue in September 2010 than in September 2009.
