Oct 6 (Reuters) - Israel’s Radware Ltd (RDWR.O), a maker of equipment to manage traffic on the Internet, raised its third-quarter outlook, boosted by strong demand for its products and tighter cost controls.
For the quarter, Radware expects to earn 9 cents to 10 cents a share, excluding items, higher than its prior view of 5 cents to 6 cents.
The company sees revenue of $28.8 million to $29.0 million, up from $27.3 million to $27.7 million it had earlier forecast.
Analysts expected the company to earn 6 cents a share, before items, on revenue of $27.8 million, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.
Radware’s business is growing due to its leading product offering — OnDemand Switch platform series — and its acquisition of Alteon from Nortel Networks Corp NRTLQ.PK, it said in a statement.
