“Q2 2022 was the third highest Q2 sales level posted over the past ten years. Stronger sales to our dealers in the United States was a highlight of C-COM’s Q2 performance. For example, on May 10th we announced a $2.65 (USD) million order for our iNetVu® 1200 Vehicle Mount antenna systems from one of our US resellers”, said Leslie Klein, President and CEO of C-COM Satellite Systems Inc.
Klein added: “Emerging markets are also showing new life. 2022 is the first year since 2019 that we have attended trade shows face-to-face. Senior management recently returned from Singapore, Dubai, and Australia where they attended trade shows and visited customers. Our takeaways were that customer confidence and leads from that part of our dealer network are robust. Moreover, on June 8, 2022, we announced a multi-unit order for our iNetVu® 98G Ka-band Vehicle Mount antenna and the iNetVu® MP-100-MOT Manpack antenna to be used by one of our reseller’s customers located in Africa.
Dr. Klein concluded: “We remain cautiously optimistic about the future. The need for emergency communications and cellular backhaul has been rapidly increasing. C-COM also anticipates improved demand from the energy and commodity exploration sector which has not been very active over the past few years. We were fortunate to enter 2022 with a strong inventory position for products which are presently in high demand.”
