We are pleased that we grew revenue year over year in a seasonally soft quarter despite the headwinds of the hard drive shortage and pause in purchasing leading up the Sandy Bridge technology transition. We saw improvement in our system sales to 48.5% and as a result our gross margins held steady,” said Charles Liang, CEO of Supermicro. “With the worst of the hard drive shortage behind us and the recent strong launch of Sandy Bridge we are looking forward to a much stronger growth in the remainder of calendar 2012. Our R&D investment while higher than expected in the new Sandy Bridge generation product lines has well positioned us ahead of competition with the broadest product offering in the industry. A new server refresh cycle is beginning and with our new product architectures and our data center optimized product such as the Fat Twin leading the server industrys innovation, we expect our upcoming performance to be strong.”
