Analysis and perspectives

Despite solid demand in aerospace, the second quarter 2011 was weakened by the optical communications market segment which represented 0.5 million euros and 19% of the revenue of this quarter, compared to 1.1 million euros and 32% of quarterly revenue at the same period in 2010. This temporary weakness is the result of relatively soft inventory reduction by the major system vendors during this quarter.

After the optimization of Company cost structure operated during the previous quarters, MEMSCAP expects significant improvement of its earnings upon first signs of re-acceleration in the optical communications sector.H1 2011 Earnings: August 31, 2011About MEMSCAP
