Looking at 2014 as a whole, we expect revenue growth in the mid single digits as strong growth in premium filters is partially offset by significant reductions in lower margin amplifiers and non-strategic foundry revenue. Revenue seasonality should be roughly similar to 2013 with about 40% of revenue coming in the first half of the year. Non-GAAP gross margin is expected to grow about 500 basis points from 2013 levels due to these product mix changes and cost reductions in operations. Operating expenses are expected to decline modestly from 2013. We currently believe non-GAAP earnings per share will meet or beat the current analyst consensus of $0.49.
