Read MoreHide Full Article

Aviat Networks, Inc. (AVNW - Free Report) is set to report third-quarter fiscal 2021 results on May 5, after the closing bell. In the last reported quarter, the company delivered an earnings surprise of 62.6%. It pulled off a trailing four-quarter earnings surprise of 61.7%, on average.

This Austin, TX-based company is expected to have recorded higher revenues year over year. Its performance might have been driven by the increasing market traction of its microwave transport product and software offerings.

During the fiscal third quarter, Aviat was selected by DISH Network as a key supplier of 5G microwave transport. LTD Broadband, an Internet service provider, deployed Aviat’s WTM 4000 microwave and multi-band platform systems in its network middle mile for fiber redundancy.

For the March quarter, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenues is pegged at $64 million, indicating growth of 4.9% from the year-ago quarter’s reported figure. The consensus estimate for adjusted earnings per share is pegged at 37 cents, which suggests an increase of 85% year over year.
