Accordingly, we caution you not to place undue reliance on these statements. Particular uncertainties that could materially affect future results include our ability to integrate and realize the expected benefits from our acquisition of LSI Corporation, or LSI; any loss of our significant customers and fluctuations in the timing and volume of significant customer demand; our ability to increase our internal manufacturing capacity to meet customer demand; our ability to accurately estimate customers’ demand and adjust supply chain and third party manufacturing capacity accordingly; our ability to improve our manufacturing efficiency and quality; cyclicality in the semiconductor industry or in our target markets; increased dependence on the volatile wireless handset market and on the enterprise storage market; delays, challenges and expenses associated with integrating acquired companies with our existing businesses and our ability to achieve the growth prospects and synergies expected from acquisitions we may make, including our recent acquisitions of LSI and PLX Technology, Inc. and our pending acquisition of Emulex Corporation; global economic conditions and concerns; quarterly and annual fluctuations in operating results; our competitive performance and ability to continue achieving design wins with our customers, as well as the timing of those design wins; our ability to sell to new types of customers and to keep pace with technological advances; market acceptance of the end products into which our products are designed; rates of growth in our target markets; our dependence on contract manufacturing and outsourced supply chain and our ability to improve our cost structure through our manufacturing outsourcing program; prolonged disruptions of our or our contract manufacturers’ manufacturing
