Commenting on the results, John Croteau, President and Chief Executive Officer of M/A-COM, stated, "I am pleased to report that we achieved sequential and year-over-year revenue growth during our fiscal first quarter despite macroeconomic headwinds across our end markets. Additionally, we delivered gross margin and earnings per share results that were within our previously announced guidance range."

Mr. Croteau noted, "During the quarter, our Automotive sales continued to outperform, exceeding our original plans and prompting us to report it as a separate and fourth end market. These sales are accretive to corporate operating margins, and we expect them to remain stable and rewarding for years to come. The strength in Automotive was offset by our Networks and Aerospace & Defense markets, which were down sequentially primarily due to customers' year-end inventory management, especially in Asia. That said, current backlog for new Optoelectronics products will drive sequential growth in fiscal Q2, with continued momentum moving into the second half of the year."
