ADTRAN (Nasdaq: ADTN) sales up again in Q3

ADTRAN (Nasdaq: ADTN) rode a sales wave in Q3. During the quarter, sales increased 27 percent to $162 million up from $128 million in Q3 2009.

Company operating income was up 56 percent to $45 million over $28 million in Q3, while net income increased 49 percent to $32 million for the quarter, compared to $21 million in Q3 09.  

Once again, the big contributors to ADTRAN's results were its broadband and internetworking segments. Although ADTRAN is a well known broadband supplier to Tier 1 incumbent service providers such as AT&T and Verizon, it has in recent months been winning a number of contract awards with Tier 2-3 ILECs stemming from the Obama administration's broadband stimulus program.

"Our Broadband Access category led this increase achieving 53 percent growth over the prior year, setting a new record level," said Tom Stanton, ADTRAN's CEO. "This was followed by our Internetworking category which posted 39 percent year over year growth, also achieving a record level."
