SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Harmonic Inc. (NASDAQ: HLIT) today announced its unaudited results for the first quarter of 2019.
"During the first quarter, our Cable business performed as anticipated, while increased customer interest in video SaaS caused a headwind for our Video business," said Patrick Harshman, president and chief executive officer of Harmonic. "Operational execution was solid as gross margins, operating expenses and cash generation all exceeded our expectations. Looking ahead, we continue to anticipate a strong Cable business ramp in the second half of the year as our largest customers begin volume rollouts of CableOS. In addition, our growing pipeline of Video SaaS activity points to continued transformation to a more valuable Video business."
