Moreover, 2014 is looking to be our best year ever." said Bob Stanzione, ARRIS Chairman and CEO. "Our fourth quarter results were strong. Our revenues were up 12% from the third quarter, largely as a result of new product introductions, and we had strong cash generation. Also, in the quarter, we retired our remaining convertible notes for $232 millionand repaid $141 million of our term loan debt, including a $125 million optional prepayment," said David Potts, ARRIS EVP & CFO.
