Flynn sidestepped a question about the possibility of Fusion-IO becoming a takeover target.
“We’re here building the business. We think we have an opportunity to become a very large company in a large market, so we’re just focused on driving business,” he said.
As to the issue of whether the company could maintain its growth rate, Flynn sounded positive.
“We came out of the gate at our IPO forecasting a 35 percent growth. We’re now at 65 to 70 percent for the year, so we thing we’re doing pretty well on the growth front,” he said. “But there’s a lot of opportunities out there. It’s a nascent market.”
Fusion-IO shares closed up 11 percent at $24.72.
The company, based in Salt Lake City, reported weak operating margins last month.
Flynn said the company was working on narrowing its loss.
“We’re growing into a market that stands to be very large, so we’re tuning our growth to try to accelerate the rate at which we’re growing,” he said.
Flynn didn’t see another technology bubble occurring despite attention to high-tech companies and IPOs.
“I think technology is what drives growth in the economy, so it’s hard to say how much leverage that gives because of the potential improved efficiencies as all of our lives become more efficient,” he said.
Pete Najarian, cofounder of OptionMonster.com, said he was keeping an eye on margins.
“I love the company, I love what they do, but I think because of the competition you just wonder, how much more of these margins are going to start to come in? I’m concerned about that,” he said.
