Management Commentary:

“In the second quarter, we achieved sequential quarterly improvements in revenue and margins in parallel to winning new projects and increasing our investment in long-term growth. We continued to see momentum in our IoT Tracking segment as correctional institutions are increasingly looking at alternative solutions to address challenges associated with overpopulated prisons.  Our remote monitoring solutions, which enable offenders to serve sentences in home confinement, are not only successful in addressing the overpopulated prisons issue, but also enable these institutions to experience substantial cost savings while also reducing recidivism among offenders,” said Ordan Trabelsi, President and CEO of SuperCom.

“At the end of the quarter, we closed $5 million in additional financing that consists of a two-year unsecured promissory note.  Our financings help provide the upfront capital required to support new project deployments, while continuing to invest in growth, taking advantage of the opportunities we see in the market. We continue to execute on our business plan to offer exceptional value to our existing customers and to potential new ones as we expand our global footprint,” concluded Ordan.
