Commenting on the second quarter, Dr. Patrizio Vinciarelli, Chief Executive Officer, stated, "Vicor recorded incremental performance improvement with sequential increases in bookings and revenue. Consolidated gross profit dollars and margin percentage increased, reflecting higher production volumes. However, expenses associated with the initial production ramp of our Power-on-Package modules resulted in a small net loss."

Dr. Vinciarelli continued, "Vicor's 48 Volt direct-to-processor solutions using our PRM-VTM ChiP-sets are gaining traction on motherboards for hyperscale datacenters while our MCD-MCM Power-on-Package ChiP-sets are getting designed within advanced CPUs, GPUs and ASICs for Supercomputing and Artificial Intelligence applications. Recent design wins and purchase orders for applications ranging from UAVs, to autonomous vehicles, to wireless telecom reflect our drive to expand our customer base and diversify our revenue streams."
