“Looking forward, we are seeing improving order rates in the third quarter from some of our key customers, including our largest customer in China, and customers in the metro and DCI markets," said Shanmugaraj. "We are also pleased with the traction we are seeing with our new products, especially our “industry first" CFP2-DCO module and our in development Pico-based 1.2 Tbps solution. We remain confident that our growth strategy is on track."
“Despite a challenging second quarter, we believe we are well positioned to meet customer demand for our products in the third quarter," said John Gavin, CFO of Acacia Communications. “Further, we believe that our talented employees, business model, market strategy, strength of our balance sheet and differentiated products position us for future growth."
