    They did not miss on revenues. The revenue number was not comparable with the analyst estimates because they bought/sold a couple of businesses during the quarter. Overall this is a very good result.

    For those of you that do not like reading press releases, here is the relevant text:


    "Therefore the financial results from the flash and Axxia businesses ... have been classified as discontinued operations in the Company's financial statements and the results of operations from these businesses are not included in the results presented below, unless otherwise indicated."


    Thus, the headline number does not include the businesses that are being sold. Analyst estimates did include that number. That is why the revenues looked like a beat.


    Revenue including these businesses would have been 1.394 billion which is well ahead of analyst estimates.
