Comments of Management
Commenting on the results, David Ripstein, RADCOM's CEO, said, "We are pleased with the results of the first quarter, our second straight period of significant improvement. The rise in our revenues and generation of positive cash flow, both of which are in line with our turnaround plan, position us to deliver on our forecast of strong growth for 2013."."
Mr. Ripstein continued, "As reported last quarter, we continue to benefit from our unique solutions for monitoring data and LTE networks. With no end in sight to the network pressures being created by the explosion in online traffic, infrastructure upgrade projects of all types are being fast-tracked, and there is a clear understanding of the need for monitoring and Customer Experience solutions. Having improved our delivery execution, a number of previously-delayed projects with key customers are now moving forward, helping us transform our strong backlog into recognizable revenues. In parallel, we are excited about a number of sales opportunities, and one highly strategic order from a large LTE operator for whom the availability of our new network optimization solution (QiSolve) was a major decision factor, confirming our confidence about its potential to become a new revenue driver. In addition, we are beginning to take advantage of opportunities that are arising as a result of our recently-formed joint ventures."
Mr. Ripstein concluded, "Taken as a whole, we are moving forward according to our plan and optimistic about our ability to deliver strong growth in 2013."
