CEO comment

Regarding the results, Tim Jenks, chairman and CEO of NeoPhotonics, said, "As expected, softness in the overall China market affected sales in the first quarter… I see the China market as being in a transition as it moves from primarily national backbone to provincial and metro 100 Gbit/s deployments, while worldwide the metro and data centre interconnect markets continue to grow at a rapid pace".
