Good afternoon. Welcome to Airgain's Third Quarter 2018 Earnings Conference Call. My name is Doug, and I will be your coordinator for today's call.

After the market closed, we issued a press release announcing our unaudited results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018, which is available in the Investor Relations section of our website.

I am very pleased to report another record sale quarter for Airgain. For the third quarter 2018, our sales were $15.8 million, up 5.4% sequentially and 27% year-over-year. Furthermore, in 2018, this marks the third consecutive record sales quarter in the company's history. Like the last couple of quarters, we witnessed strength in our connected home business, where we saw the ramp-up of both new and existing programs.

As you may know, multiple service operators are in the midst of an upgrade to higher broadband bandwidth to consumers which in turn, is fueling the need for more sophisticated antennas from Airgain. Based on these recent trends in the business, combined with our current design win momentum, we remain on target for achieving our key objectives of growth and sustainable profitability.

When I took over as Interim CEO of Airgain in May, I set out a couple of key objectives. While the first was tied to profitability, the second was tied to the company's long-term competitive position and above-average industry growth. In my last quarter's prepared remarks, I highlighted the importance of returning the company to profitability, both on GAAP and a non-GAAP basis. On that front, I am happy to report a GAAP net income of $0.4 million and a GAAP earnings per share of $0.04 a share, well ahead of our prior expectations of breakeven.
