The net earnings attributable to Vishay stockholders for the fiscal quarter ended September 26, 2009 were $2.3 million, or $0.01 per share, compared to a net loss attributable to Vishay stockholders of $301.3 million, or $1.62 per share for the fiscal quarter ended September 27, 2008.

The net loss attributable to Vishay stockholders for the fiscal quarter ended September 27, 2008 was substantially attributable to a noncash goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible assets impairment charge of $357.9 million ($328.8 million, net of tax). The third quarter 2008 results also include a pretax charge for restructuring and severance costs of $6.8 million, and $4.0 million of costs associated with Vishays terminated tender offer for all outstanding shares of International Rectifier. On an after tax basis, these items and the goodwill impairment charge had a negative $1.79 per share effect on the net earnings (loss) attributable to Vishay stockholders.

Revenues for the nine fiscal months ended September 26, 2009 were $1,435.1 million, compared to $2,246.8 million for the nine fiscal months ended September 27, 2008. The net loss attributable to Vishay stockholders for the nine fiscal months ended September 26, 2009 was $85.7 million, or $0.46 per share, compared to a net loss attributable to Vishay stockholders of $1,079.9 million, or $5.79 per share for the nine fiscal months ended September 27, 2008.

The net loss attributable to Vishay stockholders for the nine fiscal months ended September 27, 2008 was impacted by pretax charges for goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible assets impairment of $1,157.9 million, restructuring and severance costs of $34.0 million, related asset write-downs of $4.2 million, $4.0 million of costs associated with Vishays terminated tender offer for all outstanding shares of International Rectifier, and $9.9 million of tax expense associated with the repatriation of cash from certain non-U.S. subsidiaries. Including the tax effects of the pretax charges, these items had a negative $6.09 per share effect on the net earnings (loss) from continuing operations attributable to Vishay stockholders. The net loss for the nine fiscal months ended September 27, 2008 also included a loss on discontinued operations of $42.1 million, or $0.23 per share.

As previously disclosed, the results of operations for the fiscal quarter and nine fiscal months ended September 27, 2008 have been recast to include the retrospective effects of FSP APB 14-1 (ASC Topic 470-20). The retrospective application of this guidance decreased the reported loss from continuing operations for the quarter by $11.5 million ($0.06 per share) and increased the reported loss from continuing operations for the nine fiscal months ended September 27, 2008 by $0.8 million, or ($0.01) per share, respectively.

We incurred restructuring and severance costs of $28.6 million during the fourth quarter of 2008, and incurred additional restructuring and severance costs of $34.5 million during the first nine months of 2009. These costs were incurred as part of our program to reduce manufacturing and SG&A fixed costs in 2009 by $200 million compared to the year ended December 31, 2008. Our cost reduction programs are ahead of schedule. Our fixed costs in the third quarter of 2009 decreased by $49 million compared to the third quarter of 2008, and our fixed costs for the nine fiscal months ended September 26, 2009 decreased by $173 million versus the comparable prior year period. Of these amounts, approximately 47% reduced costs of products sold and approximately 53% reduced SG&A expenses.
