InterDigital Inc., a King of Prussia wireless communication company, today forecast that its second-quarter revenue would be down by about $9.5 million, or 12 percent, from the first quarter. It projected revenue for the quarter, which will end on June 30, of $69 million compared with $78.5 million in the first quarter. The projection is down $22 million, or 24 percent, from the second quarter last year. InterDigital said the decline is caused by a drop in revenue from customers in Japan, possibly a result of the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, plus a reduction in past sales and lower revenue from an existing customer that changed its contract terms.

That's a bold dream for a small company, founded in 1972, that didn't make money until last year, and still has some some big battles ahead. Still, William A. Doyle insists that the profit his company earned last year - $17.5 million on revenue of $37.8 million - is a sign that a new strategy, launched quietly about three years ago, is working.
