"This quarter we have successfully transitioned to our new NS3000 family of products which was launched in late May," said Gary J. Sbona, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "The product, which has industry leading performance, has been well received by our beta customers and early adopters," said Sbona. "While we continue to build pipeline and backlog and expect revenue growth quarter over future quarter, the current worldwide market and economic conditions makes it very difficult and imprudent to project results with any accuracy at this particular time," he added.
