Surely anybody with a half a wit can figure out some other way to get what they?re after.
Last year we focused on placing one or more of our flagship products at the top semiconductor manufacturers in the world as ranked by spending. Capacity expansion plans announced by several of these customers are contributing to our more optimistic outlook, and we are also experiencing increasing demand for our legacy products.
While weak industry conditions impacted our financial performance in fiscal 2005, we made good progress on the strategies we established at the beginning of the year.
Somebody will let him play. Hopefully it will be the Indians.
Recently we added another leading U.S. semiconductor manufacturer to our MAGELLAN(R) System customer base.
Orders for the first quarter of fiscal 2006 were $23.8 million and are expected to approach $30.0 million in the second quarter. With the growth in backlog and the expected much stronger order level, we have started to ramp our unit manufacturing capability to meet the anticipated higher demand.
We entered fiscal 2006 with a focused set of strategies and optimism that during the year we would begin to recognize results from our prior year's initiatives.
I would rather not comment on that.
We had a bad fishing year, ... My business was really suffering.
