The Company ended the third quarter of fiscal 2011 with cash, cash equivalents and short-term marketable securities of $202.1 million.

“The impact of the industry wide inventory correction led to lower sales for the December quarter and is expected to continue to put downward pressure on business in the current quarter,” said Pete Rodriguez, the Company's president and chief executive officer. “Our design wins for the quarter were very strong and there are indications of improving demand in our June quarter.”
