Emulex president and CEO Jim McCluney said the company’s September quarter was solid, coming in at the high end of their revenue and earnings guidance.

"HSP sequential revenue growth of 9% was the strongest we have seen for the first quarter in the past 5 years, and with a broad portfolio of new platforms just starting to ramp in September, we expect HSP to continue to drive our revenue growth into December," McCluney said.

For the second quarter of fiscal 2011, Emulex has forecasted total net revenues in the range of $111-$115m. The company expects a loss per diluted share of $0.03 to $0.01 in the second quarter.
