"We continue to deliver on the growth and operating efficiency milestones we laid out early last year, and remain focused on delivering operating leverage from the business. Our strong fourth quarter financial performance included positive cash flow and a second consecutive quarter of as-adjusted operating profit," said Gary Smith, president and CEO of Ciena. "While macroeconomic uncertainty remains, we are taking market share because customers recognize our differentiation and the strong alignment of our portfolio with their network architecture priorities." http://www.ciena.com
