“We are pleased to have delivered a successful and profitable quarter with the return to a more normal state of business”, said Gregory B. Kalush, CEO and President of Interphase. “I am very proud of the efforts of the entire Interphase organization in executing diligently to meet our customer expectations as the industry begins its transition to the adoption of AdvancedTCA™ and MicroTCA™ platforms together with AdvancedMC’s. Our focus across the entire organization has been on the delivery of a broad portfolio of high quality and high performance products in a timely fashion to meet the lab testing and platform integration needs of our customers. While there could still be some “lumpiness” in our revenue performance in future quarters as the rate of this transformation accelerates, we remain very optimistic of our ability to grow our revenue and profit as our customers incorporate these new products to deliver emerging network infrastructure elements in the IMS, VoIP and Wireless networks.”
