Our backlog remains strong, as we continue to benefit from our strategy of providing close-in product and testing services for our major customers. We remain optimistic regarding opportunities for the remainder of the fiscal year as we work to finalize a contract with our customer for testing and burn-in services related to a variety of semiconductor components with applications in computing and automotive electronics.”
