Highlight of Business Operations:

Our third quarter revenues increased by 12.2% compared to the third quarter of fiscal year 2010. This increase was driven by growth in all our commercial lines of business. In the third quarter of fiscal year 2011 AT&T Mobility (“AT&T”), our largest customer, accounted for 28% of total revenues as compared to 34% of total revenues during the third quarter of the prior fiscal year. No other customer accounted for more than 4% of total consolidated revenues. Our third quarter gross profits increased by 3.1% compared to the third quarter of the prior fiscal year, driven by growth in our network infrastructure commercial line of business, partially offset by a decline in our mobile devices and accessories and installation, test and maintenance commercial lines of business. Selling, general and administrative expenses increased by 5.5% over the prior year quarter, primarily related to corporate support expenses and freight costs related to increased order volume. Consequently, net income increased by 1.9% and diluted earnings per share grew by 2.7% over the prior-year quarter.

Notwithstanding the increased potential for economic recovery, the global financial crisis – which has included, among other things, significant reductions in available capital and liquidity from banks and other providers of credit, substantial reductions and/or fluctuations in equity and currency values worldwide, significant decreases in consumer confidence and consumer and business spending, rising unemployment and concerns that the worldwide economy may continue to experience significant challenges – may materially adversely affect our customers access to capital or willingness to spend capital on our products, and/or their levels of cash liquidity with which to pay for our products. Our strong third quarter revenue growth was driven by a 3% growth in the average number of monthly buying customers and a 10% increase in the average dollars purchased for each buying customer compared to the same period of fiscal year 2010. Accordingly, while we believe that the economy continues to show signs of improvement and we believe we are starting to win a larger percentage of our customers business, we also believe that our customers are continuing to experience difficulty in the current economic environment. In addition, our suppliers access to capital and liquidity may continue to be affected, which may in turn adversely impact their ability to maintain inventories, production levels, and/or product quality, or cause them to raise prices or lower production levels, or result in their ceasing operation. The impact of the current economic environment on our liquidity is further discussed below under the heading “Liquidity and Capital Resources.”
