    o Our Stockholders and Other Friends T The year 1997 w as one of significant renew al for M otorola – one that included management changes, a return to grow th in profits, the departure from certain nonstrategic businesses and the beginning of industries such as low -earth-orbit satellite manufacturing. Sales in 1997 rose 7% to $29.8 billion from $28.0 billion in 1996. Earnings w ere $1.18 billion, or $1.94 per share (diluted), up from $1.15 billion or $1.90 per share, in 1996. Detailed results appear in the 1998 Proxy Statement, as w ell as on the Internet at w w w.motorola.com. It w as a year of renew ed grow th in the Cellular Products and Semiconductor Christopher B.

The M essaging, Information and M edia segment had low er sales and operating profits, reflecting w eakness in the paging industry in the Unites States and in Asia, as w ell as a charge related to the planned exit from the retail analog modem business. M otorola also had charges relating to its exit from the dynamic random access memory and M acOS ® com- patible computer businesses. M O T O R O L A 1

For example, during 1997 the Semiconductor Products Sector began charting a new direction to better meet the changing needs of customers by providing total system solutions. Draw ing on its broad range of technologies, the sector has aligned its businesses closer to customers. The realignment reflects the sector’s global nature, w ith major groups headquartered in Europe, Asia and the United States. The new organization includes four market-focused groups and a Semiconductor Components Group.
