Working capital was reduced $20.6 million in the first nine months of 2009, principally as a result of lower levels of receivables and inventories. Receivables and inventories declined $7.9 million and $16.0 million; respectively, other current assets decreased $830 thousand and accounts payable and accrued expenses decreased $4.3 million. The lower levels of receivables reflected reductions of $2.0 million in trade receivables, $3.0 million in income taxes receivable and $2.9 million in other receivables. Inventories were reduced in all categories commensurate with the lower levels of business activity.

Capital expenditures for the nine months ended September 26, 2009 were $2.2 million, while depreciation and amortization was $10.5 million. We expect capital expenditures to be approximately $3.0 million for fiscal 2009, while depreciation and amortization is expected to be approximately $13.6 million. Planned 2009 capital expenditures relate primarily to expenditures to maintain our facilities and equipment. Earlier capital expenditure plans for 2009 included equipment for new manufacturing technology with a value of approximately $3.2 million. The equipment was subsequently obtained under an operating lease.
