Guidance By Region
Y. Edwin Mok – Needham & Company: I guess for to start this question, for your first quarter guidance as well as for the full year guidance, how much do you think that the business will come from China and Japan and other markets? I guess what we are trying to ask is, does it relate to end demand rather than just some of your customer that was buying more cell from you in China and use it for other market?
