Larscom provides outlook on second quarter results.

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 1, 1997--Larscom Inc. (NASDAQ:LARS) today provided an outlook on results for the second quarter ending June 30, 1997.

Revenues for the quarter are expected to be within the range of $18.9 million and $19.1 million. Earnings per share for the period are expected to be within the range of $0.13 and $0.14. Final results for the second quarter are scheduled to be announced on July 22, 1997. For the second quarter ended June 30, 1996, Larscom recorded revenues of $18.8 million and earnings per share of $0.15.

Deborah Soon, president and chief executive officer, commented: "Revenues in the second quarter were slightly lower than expected due to two opportunities that did not materialize. Even with these events, broadband revenues grew 30% over the immediately preceding first quarter, and increased to 38% of overall sales compared to 28% in the second quarter of last year. The healthy margins in broadband product sales, and our on-going cost reduction efforts, are expected to favorably impact our gross margins and we are continuing to make progress leveraging SG&A expenses."
