Sunrise Telecom(R) Narrows Third Quarter Sales Range; Files Form 10-K for Fiscal Year 2007
SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct 02, 2008 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- Sunrise Telecom(R) Incorporated (OTC Bulletin Board: SRTI), a leader in test and measurement solutions for telecom, wireless and cable networks, today narrowed its sales expectation for the third quarter to between $17.0 million and $19.0 million, as compared to the previous range of $16.0 million to $20.0 million. In addition, the company filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") its Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2007.
"Our cost reduction actions started producing good results in the third quarter. We shut down our Montreal facility during the quarter, merging our telecom and broadband accounting, order entry, and manufacturing operations. We are actively reshaping and refocusing our business to run more effectively with a tighter range of business objectives," said Sunrise Telecom's President and CEO, Paul Marshall. He continued, "We are working diligently to achieve our objective of becoming current in our SEC filings by year-end, ending a painful and expensive chapter in the company's history."
The company will provide greater detail regarding its third quarter financial results during its third quarter earnings conference call near the end of October.
