We greet the lift of the CVD rule as a long overdue improvement of the situation, providing our strategic partner with even more flexibility in meeting customers needs. Hynix had fought the imposition of CVD before the European Commission and the WTO since their imposition five years ago, and the termination of the CVD measures not only acknowledges the technological leadership but also the sound economic strength of our Korean partner. We are especially proud that having Hynix as another strong partner on our side enables us to provide even better added value to our customers: a broadened product portfolio of high-end, proved and tested memory technologies equals and further increases high quality product availability. Our strategic partnership is a clear benefit for the often time-critical business of our customers."
