The Company has no debt.Commentary- Cheryl Beranek, President & CEO of Clearfield "A strong backlog coming into the quarter, coupled with a significant increase in domestic and international fiber-to-the-x business, pushed the company's revenue and operating income to new record levels. Revenue growth was achieved across all major products categories and markets. We are seeing an increasing confidence from broadband service providers as take-rates for fiber builds continue to climb. To ensure ease of access as well as consolidated shipment of materials, we have experienced an increasing number of purchase orders with longer term delivery dates. The resulting backlog at the end of the third quarter reflects a number of large orders from a single customer, as well as an increase in fiber builds generally. We have expanded our manufacturing and warehouse operations to allow us to continue to provide nimble response and industry-leading lead-times of two weeks or less as required by our customers, while also responding to these project-based opportunities."
