Thank you, Mary Jane, and good morning, everyone. What a year. Our employees came together and really accomplished a lot in a short time, including coping with the pandemic. I am very pleased with our performance and our progress on a number of fronts. On a consolidated basis for fiscal year 2020, we delivered revenue of $2.4 billion, with a non-GAAP return on sales of 11% and record cash flow from operations of $297 million and record free cash flow of $160 million.
When we received approval to complete the Finisar transaction, we hit the ground running and leveraged the best that Finisar and II-VI had to offer. As One II-VI, we began serving our end markets and customers with great results. Among our many achievements in a short period of time, we enhanced our $1 billion datacom transceiver business and delivered strong operating performance underscored by improved margins. We began shipping the indium phosphide based devices to the OEM market a year ahead of schedule. We are on track to deliver double our announced cost synergies by the end of our first 12 months. We strengthened our long-term market position in silicon carbide devices by continuing to ramp our capacity for silicon carbide substrates and by pursuing strategic partnerships that enable our vertically integrated technology platforms. Our sales and procurement organizations drove profound improvements
