ADTRAN Chief Executive Officer Tom Stanton stated, “As expected, we saw an improvement late in the quarter after a slower than normal start in carrier spending. As a result of this slow start, Broadband Access revenues for the quarter were $49.5 million, in range with the same period last year. Our Internetworking category saw another strong performance with revenues of $41.0 million, an increase of 25% from the same period last year. Revenues for our core product areas in total for the quarter were $104.7 million, basically flat compared to the same period last year. Although the quarter did not meet our initial expectations, we believe the issues relate to timing, not market positioning, and that our strategic areas of focus are well aligned with global market trends and will provide long term growth for our company.”
