FISCAL Q3 2014 FINANCIAL RESULTS
Sales of digital signage products totaled $21.4 million in the third fiscal quarter of 2014, a 53 percent increase over the same period a year ago. Total revenue increased 17 percent compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2013, as increases in sales of digital signage products more than offset the decline in sales of Commercial and Industrial (C&I) products. Sales of C&I products decreased 4 percent to $22.5 million compared with the same quarter a year ago. This decrease was primarily driven by lower sales of touch monitors and high-end home products, partially offset by higher sales of custom C&I displays and rear projection cubes.
