Sunrise Telecom® Incorporated (OTC: SRTI) today posted its unaudited financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2012.
Sunrise Telecom reported revenue of $7.1 million for the quarter, compared to $8.1 million for the first quarter of 2011. EBITDA for the quarter was $0.5 million, versus a loss of $0.4 million in the first quarter of 2011. First quarter net profit was $0.1 million, or $0.00 per share, versus a loss of $0.9 million, or $(0.02) per share in the first quarter of 2011.
“Our renewed focus on cable products and our ongoing commitment to delivering best-in-class Ethernet and Transport solutions provided solid momentum in the first quarter of 2012,” said Bahaa Moukadam, Sunrise Telecom’s chief executive officer. “We are very pleased to see positive traction, especially in North America with new and existing customers.”
The company attributed its revenue performance in the first quarter to ongoing demand for its MTT (Modular Test Toolkit) platform and increased traction for the new RxT Smart Productivity Test platform, which was recognized as a Best Practice Award winner by Frost & Sullivan in late 2011. In addition, the company experienced solid demand for Cable RF spectrum analyzer and DOCSIS 3.0 test & maintenance instruments.
“In this first quarter of 2012, we continued our rapid introduction of new products, introducing packetWORX IPTV, a promising addition to our network analysis and monitoring suite of products, in addition to several new wireless backhaul capabilities for the RxT platform,” added Mr. Moukadam. “We continue to enhance our distribution channel worldwide and are busy equipping our channel partners with the winning solutions required to address the network deployment and maintenance issues faced by the industry.”
