GigOptix, Inc. (NYSE Amex: GIG), a leading fabless supplier of semiconductor and optical components that enable high speed information streaming, today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended April 1, 2012.

Executive Commentary

“We are pleased to report strong revenue growth with improved EBITDA, good cash management and closely managed expenses in the first quarter, bringing us to our tenth consecutive quarter of product revenue growth,” commented Dr. Avi Katz, chairman and chief executive officer of GigOptix. “Our continued growth is attributed to the important strategic progress that we are making in each of our three product lines -- extending our optical product offerings from telecom to datacom and consumer electronics; further expanding our RF-MMICs product offering into the E-band and wideband markets; and extending our ASIC focus into the development of high speed CMOS drivers and receivers for the consumer market through the combined efforts of our optical and ASIC engineering lines. We also continued to make progress in productizing our 40G and 100G offerings, specifically through our bundled solutions, and in moving these to production with global Tier 1 communication customers.
