CAMARILLO, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — August 5, 2014 — Vitesse Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: VTSS), a leading provider of advanced IC solutions for Carrier, Enterprise and Internet of Things (IoT) networks, reported its financial results for the third quarter of fiscal year 2014, ended June 30, 2014.

“Our recent performance has increased our confidence that Vitesse is well-positioned for significant and sustained long-term revenue growth and profitability. New product revenue momentum continues, growing 21% sequentially and 79% over the year ago quarter, and now comprises over 50% of total revenue. The inflection point in our business is now clearly evident, as the growth of our new product portfolio again outstripped the decline of our legacy business, resulting in total revenue growth of 6% sequentially and 3% from the year ago quarter,” said Chris Gardner, CEO of Vitesse. “At the same time, we have substantially strengthened our balance sheet, positioning us to retire all of our near-term debt and further our growth initiatives. Vitesse now has the infrastructure and the resources to support a much larger base of customers. Coupled with our substantial operating leverage, margins on our future growth will flow to the bottom line.”

“The markets are validating our technology focus and strategy. Today, we see Ethernet virtually everywhere, creating opportunities for Vitesse in areas such as Gigabit Wi-Fi, IoT, storage, and automotive. Because our new Ethernet product portfolio can serve these markets now, we are adding new customers at an accelerating pace while increasing opportunities and design wins with existing customers.”
