Revenues for the fourth quarter of 2008 were $334.6 million, a 16.3% decrease compared to $400.0 million for the third quarter of 2008 and a 21.4% decrease compared to $425.6 million for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2007. Revenues for the full year 2008 were $1.57 billion compared to $1.64 billion for 2007

For the full year 2008, operating loss was $(13.9) million, compared to operating profit of $51.7 million reported for 2007. Included in the full year operating results were net charges of $71.0 million for 2008 and $13.6 million for 2007, respectively, related to restructuring, asset impairment, acquisition, gain on sale of assets and grant repayments.

Of course, industry giants like Renesas and Freescale are speculated to be near bankruptcy, so perhaps this isn't so bad.  Times are grim.
