"With the strong quarterly sales in the last three quarters of 2013, overall annual revenues grew 63% to a new record level. With our operational efficiency, quarterly gross margins continued improving throughout the year, which resulted in the improved annual gross margin, from 34% in 2012 to over 38% this year. More importantly, our operating profits almost tripled in 2013. In addition, with the declaration of the increased annual dividend, AFOP shareholder value has improved, while our cash and short-term and long-term investments grew stronger." "While we are pleased with delivering record financial performance for 2013, we are excited with the business prospects in this coming year with the progress we have made with customers and new products, and the continuous strong demand in Datacom markets. Based on our current bookings, we expect revenues in the quarter to be higher than $22.5M, which would represent at least 85% growth on a year over year basis," concluded Mr. Chang.
