“Fiscal year 2011 was highlighted by improved financial performance, continued focus and investment in emerging technologies, and leadership in both our traditional and expansion markets. We grew market share and continued our share leadership in Fibre Channel adapters for a seventh consecutive year and took over the leadership position in converged adapters,” said Simon Biddiscombe, president and chief executive officer, QLogic. “Our results in the fourth quarter were highlighted by a more than 20% sequential increase in total revenues from converged and 10Gb Ethernet products. Our early success in these important expansion markets is key to our longer term growth plans. I believe that we are on the right path to capitalize on the significant incremental opportunities in the expanding high performance data center connectivity market.”
