"We are pleased with our third quarter financial results for fiscal 2014. For the quarter, our order volume included a number of multi-million dollar video system orders in the Live Events and Commercial business units and included over $20 million of third-party advertising orders. Due to the cyclical nature of our sports business and outdoor construction season, our third quarter historically is our lowest performing quarter, however our overall sales and operating income levels improved over last year due to an increase in order activity," said Reece Kurtenbach, president and chief executive officer.
