Mobile point of sale (mPOS) applications continue to be our primary growth driver, but we are also experiencing growth in areas outside of mPOS, including commercial services and healthcare. We continue to invest in our product portfolio, so we can provide more complete and compelling solutions to our developer partners. Our developer community and the number of applications that drive our business continue to grow and we remain committed to our application driven business model. Our products are readily available through online reseller distribution channels, such as Amazon, almost anywhere in the world.  

"We look forward to Q3, which typically benefits from POS deployments, especially in the second half of the quarter. Our revolving credit facilities and profitability are providing the working capital we need to support future growth," Mills concluded.
