MARKHAM, ONTARIO / ACCESSWIRE / May 23, 2014 - 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 under IFRS for the third quarter of fiscal 2014, ended March 31, 2014.
Sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 were approximately $3.5 million, up 9% from the same quarter last year in fiscal 2013.
"I am pleased to again report solid revenue growth over last year", said Bill Wignall, President and CEO of Sangoma. "While sales of new products remain our primary focus, during the last quarter or so, we've put extra attention into sales of our legacy products as well. The market for those products is likely to decline over time, so our only alternative is to fight for share, which we've done by entering new geographies or forming new partnerships to strengthen share in certain countries. That helped in our third quarter, although perhaps not by quite as much as we would have liked, due to the 'lumpiness' in orders as described previously. At the same time, we continue to be prudent with operating expenses, and as a result, have produced healthy Operating Income once again this quarter, delivering a significant swing from one year ago."
