Richard Kurtz, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Our second quarter results were in line with our expectations of growth. We had strong growth in our HSOR platform in the telecommunication market and in the Terahertz homeland security market relative to last year’s second quarter. Our gross margins increased to 43% this quarter a result of our reduction in scrap and rework expenses on HSOR products. The effect of the flooding in Thailand is impacting the telecommunication supply chain, resulting in some customers’ delaying orders and deliveries. We are continuing to invest in our high growth opportunities and are optimistic about our long term future, but the impact of the flooding, and continued malaise in the macroeconomic environment is expected to reduce our growth for this fiscal year.”
