    3Com raises profit and sales forecasts for fiscal 1st quarter on strong China operations


    MARLBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- 3Com Corp., which makes computer networking gear, on Tuesday raised its financial forecasts for the current quarter, saying sales in China have been better than expected.
    The Marlborough, Mass.-based company said it expects an adjusted operating profit of $28 million to $32 million, or 6 cents to 8 cents per share, for the fiscal first quarter ending Aug. 29. The company previously forecast $15 million to $20 million, or 3 cents to 5 cents per share.

    The three analysts polled by Thomson Financial had on average project earnings of 4 cents per share.

    3Com projects revenue of $335 million to $340 million for the quarter, up from a previous forecast of $325 million to $330 million. Analysts expect $327.7 million in revenue.

    The estimates exclude proceeds from a patent suit that was resolved in the quarter. 3Com said in July that it would receive $70 million from Realtek Semiconductor Corp. as a settlement.

    3Com said sales in China would be up 10 percent, mainly because of strong orders from Huawei.

    In morning trading, shares of 3Com climbed 24 cents, or 12.9 percent, to $2.10. The stock has ranged from 41.76 to $5.11 over the past year.
