Each of our operating divisions performed strongly and we achieved overall record quarterly bookings. While these results certainly echo the current favorable industry conditions, they are also the fruit of the company's steady and selective investment in research and development over the long-term, and reflect the technological leadership which our solutions offer in the highly competitive industries that we serve. New and emerging growth opportunities in areas such as advanced smartphones, automotive and flat panel displays, mean that our total addressable market continues to expand. Our strong backlog and order book reinforce our belief that we will meet our execution plans for 2017."
