Aviat tumbles on FQ3 miss; Ubiquiti/Ceragon/DragonWave also off

|About: Aviat Networks, Inc. (AVNW)|By:, SA News Editor

Aviat (AVNW -25.5%) badly missed FQ3 estimates and (citing poor visibility) declined to provide FQ4 guidance. The company also stated its cash balance fell by $17.2M Q/Q to $47.5M, and that it's addressing liquidity issues by "taking steps" to improve its cost structure and working capital management.

On the CC (transcript), Aviat noted African sales fell 42% Y/Y, something it blames on weak carrier spending. Nonetheless, the company's overall book-to-bill was "substantially above 1."

Other providers of microwave/backhaul hardware for carriers are also selling off on yet another rough day for high-beta tech stocks. UBNT -3.3%. CRNT -4.5%. DRWI -5.1%.

Ubiquiti and Ceragon report tomorrow, and DragonWave on May 14.
