Sangoma Reports Results for Third Quarter of Fiscal 2015
Sales Up Approximately 40% to All Time Record
MARKHAM, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - May 20, 2015) -Sangoma Technologies Corporation (TSX VENTURE:STC), a leading provider of hardware and software components that enable or enhance IP Communications Systems for both voice and data, today announced highlights of its unaudited consolidated interim financial statements for the third quarter of fiscal 2015, ended March 31, 2015.
Sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2015 were a record $4.79 million, up 40% from the second quarter of fiscal 2015 ended December 31, 2014 and 38% from the third quarter of fiscal 2014.
"These results start to demonstrate the attractiveness of our recent acquisitions of FreePBX/Schmooze and RockBochs," said Bill Wignall, President and CEO at Sangoma. "We can now see the benefit to Sangoma's top line, gross margin, and profitability, as a result of higher software and service components to our business. Customers have reacted well to the joint offerings, so it is gratifying to see Sangoma now able to produce results that validate the strategic fit between the companies. As noted last quarter, revenues in the traditional Sangoma business were below our expectations this past quarter, with sales of some product categories having softened. There was a tremendous amount of work on the part of many people at the combined company, that went into putting the acquisitions together and beginning the integration. With some of that heavy lifting behind us, we now need to refocus on growing all parts of our business. But for the first quarter post acquisitions, this is an encouraging start."
