Revenue in our Network Solution segment increased by 14% compared to the same quarter of the prior year and order activity continues to be robust, as evidenced by strong order bookings during the period and an increased backlog."
Genova continued, "Net income for the quarter was affected by higher operating expenses due in part to ongoing investment in our Network Solutions business in anticipation of increased future revenue."
Continued Genova, "We will continue to execute our strategic plan and remain highly focused on improving overall results and maximizing shareholder value."
