PMC Trims Back Following Weaker Than Expected Carrier & Storage Markets

PMC-Sierra reported revenue of $124.8 million for Q2 2015, a decrease of 1.6 percent, compared to $126.8 million in the second quarter of 2014, and a decrease of 6.2 percent from $133.1 million in the first quarter of 2015. GAAP net loss in the second quarter of 2015 totaled $8.6 million or $0.04 per share, compared to GAAP net loss in the second quarter of 2014 of $3.5 million or $0.02 per share, and GAAP net income in the first quarter of 2015 of $4.7 million or $0.02 per diluted share.

The company also today initiated steps to reduce spending across the organization by approximately 14%, including a reduction in force of approximately 200 employees worldwide and other reductions that are together expected to result in approximately $40 million per year in savings.

“2015 has started weaker than expected in the carrier and storage end markets,” said PMC President and Chief Executive Officer, Greg Lang. “Given the tepid growth environment, we are taking immediate action to reduce spending and accelerate our return to target model profitability.”
