"Although we have historically experienced seasonal softening in the March quarter, at present our outlook for the full fiscal year 2011 remains optimistic. With the revitalization in corporate and enterprise IT spending, additional capacity expansions by our major customers and the significant growth of wireless multimedia platforms, we see tremendous opportunities for continued growth for Cabot Microelectronics."
