"While we have been successful in controlling our costs and our cash position remains strong, a sharp drop in analog modem sales, particularly to our largest customers, seriously impacted our revenues in the second quarter," said Bill Smith, President and CEO of Smith Micro. "While industry experts and analog modem manufacturers predicted an upturn in 56k modem sales following the industry's adoption of the new v.90 standard in February 1998, 56k modem sales have not increased as predicted."

Smith also reported that within the next six months, the company expects to launch two new product suites that will incorporate both analog and digital communications technologies, including the various digital subscriber lines ("xDSL") and cable technologies. These new product suites are designed to provide for high-speed Internet connectivity, as well as facilitate high-speed communications on various corporate and government networks.

Smith stated that the "the company's financial condition remains strong with working capital of $19 million and no debt. We are well-positioned to invest in the product development and marketing programs required to launch these new product suites."
