Highlight of Business Operations:

We supply a range of bonding equipment and expendable tools. The following table reflects net revenue by business segment for the three months ended December 31, 2011 and January 1, 2011, respectively:

Approximately 98.0% and 97.0% of our net revenue for the three months ended December 31, 2011 and January 1, 2011, respectively, was for shipments to customer locations outside of the U.S., primarily in the Asia/Pacific region. We expect sales outside of the U.S. to represent a majority of our future net revenue.

For the three months ended December 31, 2011, lower Equipment net revenue as compared to the prior year period was due primarily to lower volume for our wedge bonders and AT Premier bonders. The reduction in wedge bonder volume was attributable mainly to the power discrete semiconductor packaging portion of the market. Our customers built up their inventories, but slowing demand from the end users of our customers devices resulted in our customers cutting back their production, reducing their need for new equipment. Sales to the power hybrid market remained fairly flat. Lower volumes were partially offset by favorable pricing from our ball bonders due to a change in customer and product mix from our IConnPS ProCu and our large bondable area products.

The following table reflects the components of Expendable Tools net revenue change between the three months ended December 31, 2011 and January 1, 2011:
