Second-quarter revenue increased 8% sequentially, and gross margin increased to 54%, due to a favorable product and end-customer mix. Higher revenue and gross margin produced $0.16 earnings per share in the quarter, up significantly from the $0.07 in the prior quarter.

Our book-to-bill ratio was 0.99, due to a mild, but broad, softening in the consumer electronics sector. However, based on the strength of the automotive and industrial sectors, we remain on track to attain our 2014 revenue forecast, which I communicated to shareholders in our 2013 Annual Report. Those two sectors account for 43% of revenue, more than double our TrueTouch® touchscreen revenue.

Our pretax profit of $27.4 million and our free cash flow of $39.5 million were up quarter-on-quarter by 120% and 102%, respectively, reflecting the fall-through leverage in our current model.

BUSINESS REVIEW

+ Our non-GAAP consolidated gross margin for the second quarter was 54.0%, up 3.7 percentage points from the previous quarter, primarily due to product and end-customer mix. Excluding our Emerging Technologies Division (ETD), our core semiconductor gross margin was 55.8%, the highest level since 2012. ETD revenue nearly doubled year-on-year (see Net Revenue Summary table) and will continue to grow rapidly throughout 2014.

+ Net inventory at the end of the second quarter was flat at $89.0 million.
