Preliminary Q420 net revenues are $3.24 billion, up 21.3% sequentially and 580 basis points above the high end of the range. The prior outlook was for Q420 net revenues to be $2.99 billion, an increase of 12.0% sequentially, plus or minus 350 basis points.

Our FY20 revenues reached $10.22 billion, an increase of 6.9% compared to FY19.
