Quoting Management: “We are disappointed in our revenue and margin performance for the second quarter fiscal year 2011. Softness was broad based, with a significant impact coming from weakness in the communications market and the delay in defense spending. We believe demand is improving and the second half of fiscal 2011 will be stronger than the first half,” stated Jure Sola, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
