Other income, net

Total other income was $11.7 million in 2008, compared to $6.6 million in 2007 and $4.0 million in 2006. The increase in 2008 compared to 2007 was primarily attributable to the gain recognized on the partial repurchase of our convertible senior notes during the fourth quarter; partially offset by a decrease in interest income, resulting from lower interest rates; higher interest expense, resulting from the first full year of outstanding convertible debt; and foreign currency losses. The increase in 2007 compared to 2006 was due to increased interest income, resulting from higher cash and investment balances, and higher foreign currency gains, offset by interest expense from our convertible senior notes.

Fiscal Year 2009 Outlook

We anticipate that other income will decrease in 2009 as we do not expect to repurchase the same amount of convertible senior notes and will incur additional interest expense as a result of the adoption of FSP No. APB 14-1. See Recent Accounting Pronouncements for additional discussion on the adoption of FSP No. APB 14-1.
