We are now bringing the benefits of mobile technologies to new areas such as automotive, healthcare, networking, smart homes, smart cities, and wearables among others. Our business continues to generate strong operating cash flows, and we are committed to the ongoing return of capital to stockholders while retaining the financial flexibility to execute on our business plans. We recently significantly increased our stock repurchase authorization to $15 billion, one of the largest capital return programs in the sector. We plan to repurchase $10 billion of common stock within one year in addition to our current capital return commitments. Since inception, we have exceeded our minimum capital return target of 75% of free cash flow. Our Board of Directors and management periodically review our corporate structure.
