"This third sequential growth in the quarterly revenues
demonstrates the increase of our clients' demand as well as the
efficiency of our outsourcing process which allows us to respond very
quickly to high volume orders.
The revenues of this quarter were mainly generated through the
sale of telecom amplifiers, but, in addition to the uptake in demand
for traditional network products, we would observe additional
revenues for future semesters coming from high-power "Double Clad"
products that Highwave has moved into industrial production.
These products will include industrial lasers, particularly for
Asia, and which are in qualification phase. Besides, our "double
clad" technology is at the heart of High speed Broadband Access
projects for the internet and CATV, both in Asia and in the USA.
Volume roll-out of these products is expected for 2005 and 2006".
