Revenues for the fourth quarter of 2018 were 8 percent higher compared to the third quarter of 2018, reflecting increased demand broadly across our products and end markets. Our overall gross margin was 61.0 percent for the fourth quarter of 2018 compared to 60.6 percent in the third quarter benefiting from strong execution across our product portfolio.
Investments in capital expenditures, net of amounts funded by partners, were $2.06 billion for the fourth quarter of 2018 and $8.20 billion for the full year of 2018, which resulted in adjusted free cash flows(3) of $3.09 billion for the fourth quarter of 2018 and $9.20 billion for the full year of 2018. We repurchased or converted $2.23 billion principal amount of our debt during the quarter and $6.96 billion for the full year of 2018, lowering our total carrying value of debt to $4.64 billion exiting the fiscal year. We ended the fourth quarter in a record net cash position of $2.72 billion with cash, marketable investments, and restricted cash of $7.36 billion.
