During the fourth quarter of 2008, the Company determined that, based on the ongoing negotiations related to the divestiture of its Handheld business unit, the discontinued operations classification criteria for this business unit were no longer met. As a result, the Company intends to reclassify the operating results of this business unit back to continuing operations in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 27, 2008.
