2012 Citi Technology Conference

Eitan Gertel – CEO



Welcome to our presentation with Finisar. My name is Kevin Dennean. I’m the comp equipment analyst here at Citi. We are very happy to have with us CEO of Finisar, Eitan Gertel.

Eitan Gertel

Good morning.


Thanks for joining us, thanks for your participation at the conference. So it’s a pleasure to speak with Finisar. A couple of quick housekeeping issues, one is the closure up at the front desk, we encourage you to take a look at. Two, the webcast is being – I am sorry, the, presentation is being webcast. We are going to go slide by charts. We are going to leave plenty of time for Q&A from people in the audience. The one thing we would ask you is if you have a question, raise your hand, wait for a Mic to reach you so that people listening on the webcast can have the benefit of hearing your question. Last housekeeping point, what we are doing this year at the conference is we have three questions that we want to ask all of the companies. We’re going to collate the data and we’ll share that with you. And Eitan, I guess diving into those questions.

The first question we have if you thinking about your expectations for the back half of the year and obviously Finisar have reported just a couple of days ago. But if we think about expectations for the back half of the year now versus a mid-year. Things materially have been downgraded in terms of expectations, are things – is the back half of the year shaping up about the way you would have expected or is there actually some improvement?
