Management Commentary:

"Our first quarter performance was exceptionally strong in what is typically a soft quarter for our industry. We are benefitting from the continued investment cycle in 100G and network convergence. The favorable economics of our PIC-based architectures and the operational benefits of super-channels positions us as the industry recognized leader in the optical market," said Tom Fallon, Chief Executive Officer. "I remain optimistic about our short-, intermediate- and long-term opportunity. Our focus this year remains on winning footprint, gaining market share, and servicing customers. We believe the continued growth of our business in long-haul, combined with product investments in adjacent markets, is the best way for us to provide long-term shareholder value."
