Second Quarter 2019 Review
The Company’s performance in the second quarter of 2019 continued to reflect the Company moving through resolution of some of the challenges, originating in 2018, where a number of events and issues negatively influenced the Company’s business and performance. Additionally, revenue and growth momentum continued to be influenced by the slowdown in the Chinese economy.
The Company’s restructuring of its sales and service functions continues to gain traction and is creating a more optimal revenue mix with a focus on higher-return opportunities. Following important investments in its industrial AI and IIoT platforms throughout 2018, revenue from the Company’s IIoT business continued to gain strong growth momentum during the quarter and accounted for a low double-digit percentage of total revenues in the quarter.
