Great, thanks, Jennifer. And good afternoon, everyone and thanks for joining our fourth quarter and fiscal year ‘14 earnings conference call. We’ve posted a press release and relating financial schedules on our IR website at investor.analog.com.
Now, I’d encourage everyone to follow along as we go through our results today.
Our agenda for this afternoon’s call will be as follows: First, I will provide a brief overview of our fourth quarter results. Then Dave Zinsner, our Chief Financial Officer, will review our financial performance for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ’14 which will be detailed further in our 10-K which we expect to file next week as we finalize the purchase accounting relating to the Hittite transaction. Dave will also discuss our outlook for the first quarter fiscal ’15. And then Vincent Roche, our President and CEO will provide closing remarks.
Now after these comments, we will open it up for questions. Since we will be discussing both our fourth quarter and our fiscal year results today, our prepared remarks will run for about 20 minutes which should still leave ample time for Q&A.
Today’s call will include non-GAAP financial measures that have been adjusted to exclude special items in order to provide investors with useful information regarding our historical results and our outlook. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures are included in today’s earnings release, which is posted on our IR website.
