Cabletron reports $US22.5m loss

Cabletron Systems has reported a first-quarter loss of $US22.5 million. The loss was greater than what the company reported last quarter, but down substantially from the loss posted a year ago.

The company's net loss in the fourth quarter of last fiscal year was $US12.7 million. A year ago, the networking company reported a loss of $US154.6 million.

For the latest quarter, ending 31 May 31, Cabletron had income of $US7.3 million, up from the $US3.8 million in the fourth quarter. The company posted sales of $US349.5 million, down from the $US365.7 million it had in the year-ago quarter, but up slightly from $US345.1 million in sales last quarter.

Earlier this month, Cabletron announced that company co-founder Craig Benson was stepping down as chairman, president and chief executive officer -- the third change in top leadership in less than two years. He was succeeded by Piyush Patel, who was head of Yago Systems, a closely-held company acquired by Cabletron last year.
