Net income for the third quarter of 2011 rose to $1,454,000, or $0.16 per share based on 8.9 million shares outstanding, compared to $1,249,000, or $0.14 per share based on 8.9 million shares outstanding, for the second quarter of 2011. This compares to net income for the third quarter of 2010 of $2,064,000, or $0.24 per share based on 8.6 million shares outstanding.

Peter Chang, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are pleased with the financial performance and progress AFOP has made in the quarter ended September 30, 2011. Despite the inventory correction experienced in our industry and macro-economic uncertainty, we delivered quarterly revenue higher than our guidance. With this sequential revenue growth, our operating profits and net profits continued increasing.”

“Regarding the fourth quarter of 2011, we expect that revenues will be in the similar range and that the Company will achieve another consecutive profitable quarter and full fiscal 2011,” concluded Mr. Chang.
