English term or phrase: missed materially
The most notable negative surprise came from an incumbents’ mobile unit, XXX, which ***missed materially***, and the company has since issued a 2005 guidance that can be interpreted as a profit warning.

I have no clue what this means...

Thankful for any help,
Laura

Explanation:
A bit of a wild guess, admittedly - could this mean that the mobile unit's results were materially below forecasts?
