Peter Chang, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are very pleased with the exceptional financial performance and progress AFOP made in the quarter ended June 30, 2013. With excellent efforts by our Asia operations, we managed unexpected demand increases and delivered much higher than originally guided quarterly revenues. With our focus on operational excellence, we continued to improve gross margins to a record level above 38%, which resulted in a 132% increase in profits based on our 57% revenue growth from the previous quarter. In addition, our balance sheet becomes stronger with improved inventory turn and a higher net cash balance."

"More importantly, customer demand remains strong. Therefore, we expect revenues to increase to another record level, between $19.5M and $20.5M, in the third quarter of 2013. With higher revenues and our continued focus on operational efficiency, we expect our gross margins and profit will improve in the quarter as well." concluded Mr. Chang.
