reported a narrower third-quarter loss, but still missed analysts' estimates on a steep drop in revenue.
For the quarter ended March 30, the Santa Clara, Calif.-based company lost $7.6 million, or 7 cents a share, including deferred compensation. This compares with a loss of $139.8 million, or $1.23 a share, in the year-ago quarter. Analysts were expecting the company to lose 2 cents a share.
Revenue was down to $85.2 million, compared with $111.1 million in the prior-year quarter.
The company also announced that it's ahead of schedule on a new product. "We are already shipping our third-generation chipset technology, called Triumph, we are three months ahead of schedule," said Gordon Stitt, chief executive of the company.
