PLX Technology, Inc. Reports First Quarter 2011 Financial Results

Stocks in this article: PLXT

PLX Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: PLXT), a leading global supplier of software-enriched silicon for the enterprise and consumer markets, today announced first quarter revenues of $28.1 million and a GAAP loss of $9.1 million, or $0.21 per share (diluted).

“Our revenues were up slightly in Q1 with record PCI Express switch revenue increasing more than 18 percent quarter over quarter due to strong demand in the enterprise storage market and Intel Sandy Bridge platforms,” said Ralph Schmitt, president and CEO of PLX. “We also completed the release of four new high-speed connectivity product families: 8Gbps PCI Express Gen3 switches, 10Gbps Ethernet Base-T PHYs, and 5Gbps USB 3.0 bridges and USB 3.0 storage controllers. These products continue to layer in opportunities for the rest of 2011 and 2012.”

“Our business metrics were in line with our previous projections,” said Schmitt. “While the impact of entering the 10G Ethernet business has caused our operating results to be negative for a few quarters, this investment will give the company another synergistic growth business as we see the technology become broadly adopted later in 2011 and into 2012.”
