Quarterly revenues increased by $21.6 million, or 7.1%, over the fourth fiscal quarter of fiscal 2014. Quarterly revenues grew for the eighth consecutive quarter," said Jerry Rawls, Finisar's executive Chairman of the Board.
"While demand for our transceivers that address wireless applications was very strong in the first quarter, demand for these products is now expected to decrease in the second quarter. We expect the demand to return and revenues to increase sequentially for these products in the third quarter. As a result of this decrease in demand for wireless transceivers, as well as a decrease in demand for telecom products due to soft carrier spending and a decrease in demand from several datacom customers with lumpy order patterns, we expect our overall revenues to decline in the second fiscal quarter," said Eitan Gertel, Finisar's Chief Executive Officer.
