“Our strategy is to aggressively grow sales to the stage where we can move upstream and meet volume discount thresholds and improve margins,” commented CEO Scott M. Boruff. “We’re confident that as we demonstrate reliable and consistent high growth, the market will reward our equity with a greater multiple of revenue, closer to industry standard, which should lower our growth capital costs and preserve ownership for shareholders.”
“We are also pleased with improving margins we see from system optimization initiatives like the recent implementation of Axxis sales order and billing,” he continued.
