Regarding recent performance and trends, Dr. Patrizio Vinciarelli, Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Vicor’s third quarter bookings rose to $64.3 million and are reaching an inflection point as Factorized Power solutions achieve critical mass in high-growth applications ranging from hyperscale datacenters to Artificial Intelligence.”

Dr. Vinciarelli continued, “Third quarter revenue and profitability were negatively impacted by delays in new programs now expected to ramp in Q1 2018. Top line growth is expected to lift bottom line profitability going into 2018.”   

Concluding his remarks, Dr. Vinciarelli stated, “In view of the expanding depth and breadth of customer applications leveraging 48V with our modular power system solutions, we are confidently approaching a major transition in our industry.”
