    to o u r s t o c k h o l d e r s and o t h e r f r i e n d s strategic investment—in technologies and businesses where we will lead. The pages of this year's report stress the ways in which Motorola enables consumers to improve their lives in ways they might not have expected. Motorola's opportunities have never been greater. Financial Results Sales in 1996 rose 3% to $28.0 billion from $27.0 billion in 1995. Earnings were $1.15 billion, or $1.90 per fully diluted common and common equivalent share, compared with $1.78 billion, or $2.93 per share, a year ago. Net margin on sales was 4.1 % in 1996 and 6.6% in 1995. The main factor contributing to the decline in earnings and slowdown in sales growth in 1996 was the recession in the semiconductor industry. Other factors included product Christopher B. Galvin deficiencies in certain segments of the cellular telephone and M otorola's financial performance in 1996 was below the modem businesses, slower sales in the U.S. paging business expectations of ourselves and our investors. At the same in the fourth quarter, and their impact on related component time, we focused on making changes that are designed to set products such as rechargeable batteries.

Summary operating and financial results of our various business segments appear on page 22. Detailed results appear in the Proxy Statement, as well as on the Internet at www.motorola.com. Management Transition Anticipating a required age-related retirement from the Motorola Board of Directors in May of 1997, William J. Weisz made a transition from chairman to vice chairman of the Board of Directors at the end of 1996. As part of Motorola's succession planning process, a subsequent series of changes took place in the Office of the Chief Executive. Robert L. Growney Gary L.

    The Future We have made a number of strategic decisions designed to improve our financial performance. They include: • A reinvigorated process of discontinuing those development programs that have not lived up to their promise, • Further cost reductions in existing businesses that are not achieving adequate profitability, and • A refocusing of investments into areas where we possess, or are cultivating, leadership core competencies. At the end of 1996, our Semiconductor Products Sector began to experience an improved pattern of orders and sales as the worldwide semiconductor industry entered a cyclical rebound. However, higher year-over-year financial results may not be evident in SPS until later in 1997. We expect only grad- Gary L.

    for millions of new consumers. Despite its rapid growth, cellular phones and personal communications services are used by only about 2% of the world's population, and the industry is in its early stages. Likewise, we are just beginning to realize the potential of newer messaging services, such as two-way and voice paging. Motorola's promising integrated radio dispatch products are in the early stages of commercial deployment. We also look forward to enjoying the commercial benefits of our investments in areas such as software and cable modems and satellite technology. Motorola is continuing to invest in programs that create plat- forms for future growth, such as the IRIDIUM® satellite-based communication system and flat-panel displays, without ignoring substantial investments in our core technology businesses. William J. Weisz The global economic outlook is healthy, especially in emerging markets where Motorola is investing heavily, such as Latin America and Asia. We see balanced growth in the developed world as well. Although we don't anticipate positive quarter-to-quarter earn- Christopher B Galvin Chief Executive Officer ings comparisons until later in 1997, we are well into the process of improving the performance of our existing businesses, as well as building on our future technology portfolio to create new business Robert L Growne segments.

Twenty years ago, many people could hardly imagine that it would be pos- sible to use a computer. Today, they can be part of this new world. The new information highways are paved with our silicon. Our microcontrollers are designed into devices that access the Internet with ease. Speech and handwriting recognition programs bring you to your destination without a keyboard. High-speed modems link you to the Internet through your pager, cel- lular telephone or hand- held computer. Motorola is creating software and pathways that promise to bring the virtual world to life.

They can be the tools of commu- nication—wireless telephone systems that can be installed quickly and cost effectively They can be the tools that spring from creative software—such as Chinese hand- writing recognition systems. Motorola's success is coupled with our commitment to education. In China, for example, our support helps children in remote areas receive five years of fundamental education for a more promising future. 10
