We also continued to diversify our future revenue base during the first quarter of fiscal 2013 by winning new programs involving solar energy and power management products.

We expect to continue to see our new programs ramp up, our market share increase and our revenue base diversify. As we grow our business over the long term, we remain focused on maintaining outstanding customer service, carefully managing our operating expenses and maximizing our return on invested capital.”
