We are especially excited that we achieved a significant new milestone for the Company with quarterly sales in excess of $1 billion. Sales growth of 15% over last year was driven by strength across most of our served markets, led by Mobile Devices, Industrial and Automotive. We continue to perform well in a dynamic electronics market due to our leading technology, broad and increasing positions with our customers across all of our diverse markets, worldwide presence and lean cost structure. In addition, despite what continues to be an extremely challenging cost environment, our entrepreneurial management team executed well in the quarter, achieving industry leading operating margins of 19.4%, net income margins of 13.4% (both excluding one-time items) and operating cash flow of $105 million.”

“Our ongoing strategy of market and geographic diversification combined with a steadfast commitment to developing enabling technologies for our customers in all markets, both through organic product development and through our acquisition program, continues to expand the Company’s opportunities for growth. In addition, the Company continues to deploy its financial strength in a variety of ways to increase shareholder value including, in this quarter, the purchase of 3 million shares of the Company’s stock pursuant to our new stock repurchase plan announced in January.”

“Based on constant currency exchange rates, we expect third quarter 2011 revenues in the range of $1 billion to $1.015 billion and EPS in the range of $.77 to $.79. For the full year 2011, we expect to achieve revenues and EPS in the range of $3.975 billion to $4.005 billion and $3.13 to $3.17 as reported ($3.07 to $3.11 excluding one-time items), respectively, an increase of 12% to 13% and 14% to 15% over 2010 revenues and EPS (excluding one-time items), respectively. We continue to be extremely excited about the future. The accelerating proliferation of new electronics in all of our end markets presents a unique expansion opportunity for Amphenol. Our ongoing actions to enhance our competitive advantages and build sustained financial strength have created a solid base for future performance. I am confident in the ability of our outstanding management team to dynamically adjust to the constantly changing market environment, to continue to generate strong profitability and to further capitalize on opportunities to expand our market position.”
