Given a stronger-than-anticipated US dollar versus Canadian dollar and higher sales volume, EXFO’s management now expects GAAP net earnings to finish between US$0.00 and US$0.01 per diluted share for the first quarter of fiscal 2010.


The company had previously forecasted a GAAP net loss between US$0.06 and US$0.02 per share, partially based on an anticipated pre-tax, foreign exchange loss of US$0.03 per share to account for the significant weakness of the US dollar in days preceding the issuing of company guidance on October 13, 2009. more
