PARIS — STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM) reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2011.

ST’s fourth quarter net revenues decreased 10.3% on a sequential basis, within our guidance, with all regions down sequentially.

On a year-over-year basis, ST’s net revenues decreased 22.6%, with Analog, MEMS and Microcontrollers (AMM) and Automotive, Computer, Consumer and Communications Infrastructure (ACCI), led by Automotive, performing better than the other segments, in particular Wireless.
