Eli Ayalon, Chairman and CEO of DSP Group, stated: "We continue to face pressure on ASPs, which caused our revenues to decline as compared to the first quarter of 2006. Nevertheless, sales of our CoIP (Cordless over IP) products, which we consider to be a future growth driver for the company, increased significantly in the quarter and exceeded our combined revenues for all three quarters of CoIP sales in 2006. Moreover, we also succeeded in achieving two design wins during the quarter, with two new customers for CoIP products. Our cash and marketable securities increased by $6.4 million during the quarter. The overall financial results of the Company for the first quarter of 2007 reflected solid execution in a challenging environment."
