Quoting Management: “While we were disappointed with our financial performance in the fiscal second quarter, the weakness was primarily within the 3G wireless market. In turn, we have had to reconsider our views of how and when that market will develop. Our other product lines for high performance analog and communications processors performed consistently with our expectations, and 4G/LTE met our goal of doubling in the quarter,” commented Raouf Y. Halim, chief executive officer at Mindspeed. “We believe our diverse product families for HPA, communications processors and wireless infrastructure are well positioned in their respective markets, and we remain committed to maximizing value to our customers, partners, employees and shareholders.”
