Nov 08, 2007 (08:11 AM EST)
NORCROSS, Ga., Nov. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Vyyo Inc. , a supplier of broadband access equipment for cable system operators, today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2007.
For the third quarter of 2007, Vyyo reported sales of $2.6 million, compared to $1.7 million in the second quarter of 2007 and $1.1 million in the third quarter of the previous year. Loss for the third quarter of 2007 was $8.7 million, or $0.47 per share, compared to a loss of $4.7 million, or $0.25 per share, in the second quarter of 2007 and a loss of $7.7 million, or $0.43 per share, in the third quarter of the previous year.
Vyyo ended the third quarter of 2007 with $19.2 million of cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments, down from $26.2 million at the end of the second quarter of 2007. During the third quarter, cable revenues were $1 million, up from $326,000 in the second quarter of 2007.
"While investors are expressing their concern about cable's ability to compete with bandwidth-rich competitors, it's important to note that operators have solutions -- including ours -- at hand that can dramatically expand their ability to deliver the new services that will help them compete with telco fiber," said Wayne H. Davis, CEO of Vyyo. "The operator community is recognizing the need for a long-term solution that will cost-effectively give them both the downstream and the upstream capacity that they need."
