“I am pleased with the continued revenue strength, as sales were well above last year and were in line with the first quarter, in spite of the first quarter having been positively impacted by a large one-time order,” said Bill Wignall, President and CEO. “Quarterly EBITDA was above our first quarter, exceeding $1 million for the second time, and on a year-to-date basis Net Income has already exceeded 2017’s full year figure. I am also very encouraged by the performance and results from the newly added CCD team who joined the Sangoma family following the acquisition last month, so I look forward to reporting combined results at the end of this quarter.”
Gross profit of $5.99 million for the second quarter was 38% higher than for the second quarter of fiscal 2017, with gross margin percent at 51% of sales.
Operating expenses were $5.08 million in the second quarter, up 32% from the same quarter in fiscal 2017, reflecting normal expenses in the operation of VoIP Supply and controlled spending increases to invest in Sangoma’s growth.
EBITDA was $1.27 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2017 up 27% from the $0.76 million in the same quarter of fiscal 2017 and at over 10% of revenue, was above our fiscal 2018 target.
Sangoma continues to maintain a healthy balance sheet and finished the quarter with a cash balance of $3.34 million and working capital of $5.38 million.
Outlook for fiscal year 2018
Sangoma’s Board of Directors considers that the year-to-date results, along with expectations for the CCD business purchased in January, support the guidance previously provided for fiscal 2018. That guidance included revenue of about $53 million and approximately $5.5 million of EBITDA.
