"The industry wide slowdown and weak global demand, especially in the Asia Pacific region, impacted our business in the second half of the year. As a result, our fiscal year 2011 results were not as strong as we had anticipated,�? said Chris Gardner, CEO of Vitesse. “However, despite the lackluster demand environment, we made substantial progress in preparing for our new product cycle and positioning Vitesse for growth in 2012 and beyond."http://www.vitesse.com
