"EXFO is remarkably well-positioned to benefit from intermediate and long-term market trends as both wireless and wireline operators must continue to invest in converged, IP networking technologies in order to meet growing bandwidth demand," said Germain Lamonde, EXFO's Chairman, President and CEO.
"Given our outlook for the fourth quarter, we should generate annual revenue growth greater than 30% for our telecom business, which demonstrates once again our ability to grow faster than our end-markets. Based on EXFO's strong innovation leadership and business development initiatives, I'm confident we will overcome the short-term, softer spending environment to keep delivering superior results as demand for bandwidth expansion and IP networking is not going away."
