(6)   We define working capital as current assets less current liabilities. Prior to the 2006 Acquisition, we participated in Texas Instruments’ centralized system for cash management, under which our cash flows were transferred to Texas Instruments on a regular basis and netted against Texas Instruments’ net investment account. Consequently, none of Texas Instruments’ cash, cash equivalents, debt or interest expense has been allocated to our business in the Predecessor historical combined financial statements.
