Patrick Lo, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of NETGEAR commented, "We are extremely pleased with our full year 2011 business performance amid a challenging macroeconomic environment. Q4 2011 represented another new record in quarterly revenue, and our full year 2011 revenue well exceeded the $1 billion mark. In the fourth quarter 2011 we benefited from strong holiday retail sales, specifically in North America. This is particularly encouraging after the strong back to school season we experienced in Q3. We also experienced healthy year-over-year growth in all three geographic regions as we continue to carry positive momentum out of a very strong third quarter. Our new products continue to exceed our expectations and enable us to gain market share."http://www.netgear.com
