Business Outlook 

The Company is still moving through a transition post-restructuring. However, it is confident it has stabilized operations, significantly strengthened its business, and set a strong foundation for growth in what is a dynamic and growing global industry. Further, there is enhanced visibility regarding business prospects and topline trends and opportunities.

Looking at the remainder of 2014, the Company is fully committed to broadband as the driver of the business and primary revenue contributor now and going forward. While many of the latest initiatives for the broadband business have significant momentum, new products are still in early stages of their product life cycle. Together with the new customer wins that are currently in project deployment phases, these new products are expected to become significant revenue contributors beginning in the later part of 2014. With respect to short-term revenue expectations, the Company anticipates total revenues in the third quarter of 2014 to be in the range of $25 million to $30 million.

At the same time, the Company will continue to work to mitigate the pressure on gross margin and expect that it will remain relatively stable through the remainder of the year. Further, it will maintain a tight focus on cost control as it has consistently throughout the restructuring period and through to the present time. As a result of the foregoing, the Company believes it will deliver incremental improvements in financial performance compared to 2013.

Mr. Wong concluded, "We firmly believe that we are on exactly the right track to achieve our near and long-term strategic goals. As we emerge from the significant transformation we have undergone over the past two years, we have a much healthier underlying business and we are extremely excited about the future as we are experiencing increasing demand for the innovative technologies we are bringing to key markets all around the world. We are confident that this will translate into improved top and bottom line performance in the near future as well as significantly increased long-term value for all our current and future shareholders."
