NASDAQ Market Listing Upgrade Effective January 3, 2013, TESSCO has been upgraded to the NASDAQ Global Select Market, the highest of the three segments of the NASDAQ Global Market. The NASDAQ Global Select Market reflects NASDAQ's highest financial listing standards, with measures including market value, liquidity and earnings. Business Outlook TESSCO expects to report revenue in the range of $200 million to $210 million for the third fiscal quarter, which ended December 30, 2012. This third quarter revenue as compared to our prior year third quarter will reflect a 15-20% increase in our core markets and represents a 10% decrease in total revenue as a result of the ongoing transition out of our third party logistics business with a Tier 1 carrier. As previously announced, we expect to be completely transitioned out of the 3PL relationship with this Tier 1 carrier customer by the end of our fiscal year.
Based on our results in the first half of fiscal 2013, our expected results for our third quarter and our view of the current business opportunities for our fourth fiscal quarter, we continue to expect that diluted earnings per share for fiscal 2013 will range from $1.90 to $2.15. We expect to provide a narrower range of annual diluted earnings per share guidance when we release our financial results on January 17, 2013.About TESSCO TESSCO Technologies (NASDAQ:TESS), is Your Total Source ® for making wireless work.
