supplier of high-performance, end-to-end interconnect solutions for data
center servers and storage systems, today announced that its fourth

million, below the company's previous guidance of $145 million to $150
million, bringing 2012 annual revenue to approximately $500 million, up
from $259 million in 2011. The shortfall is primarily the result of a
weaker demand environment, challenging macroeconomic conditions, and a
technical issue associated with FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand cabling which
caused approximately $20 million of FDR deployments to be delayed. The
cabling issue has been resolved and is not expected to impact revenue in

by us, all of which are subject to change.
Forward-looking statements can often be identified by words such as

The risks and uncertainties that could cause our results to differ
materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking
statements include the continued expansion of our product line, customer
base and the total available market of our products, the continued
growth in demand for our products, the continued, increased demand for
industry standards-based technology, our ability to react to trends and
challenges in our business and the markets in which we operate, our
ability to anticipate market needs or develop new or enhanced products
to meet those needs, the adoption rate of our products, our ability to
establish and maintain successful relationships with our OEM partners,
our ability to effectively compete in our industry, fluctuations in
demand, sales cycles and prices for our products and services, including
limited visibility into product inventory levels held by our customers,
our success converting design wins to revenue-generating product
shipments, the continued launch and volume ramp of Intel (News - Alert) Romley and
Sandy Bridge-based server and storage platforms, and our ability to
protect our intellectual property rights. Furthermore, the majority of
our quarterly revenues are derived from customer orders received and
fulfilled in the same quarterly period and we have limited visibility
into actual end-user demand in any given quarter; consequently, this
introduces risk and uncertainty into our revenue and production
forecasts and business planning and could negatively impact our
financial results. In addition, current uncertainty in the
global economic environment poses a risk to the overall economy as
businesses may defer purchases in response to tighter credit conditions,
changing overall demand for our products, and negative financial news.

due to these general economic and market conditions, political events
and other risks and uncertainties described more fully in our documents
