It says it will leverage this market leading position into the DVD market. Revenue for Q3 was $183.9 million and net income and $26.7 million. Strip out the contributions from the Peripheral Technology Solutions group (PTS), sold in parts to STMicroelectronics and Texas Instruments, and net revenues were $159.6 million in Q3, 17.9 per cent down from $194.4 million in Q3, 1998.
