Official Comment: Quote"Our team delivered a record revenue quarter with 16% growth in an increasingly challenging operating environment coupled with currency headwinds. Strong results in our Industrial Inkjet and Productivity Software business segments led to our tenth consecutive quarter of double-digit growth," said Guy Gecht, Chief Executive Officer of EFI. "While our business isn't immune to broader economic trends even though EFI targets the growth areas of print, we continue to see growth opportunities in enabling our customers to transform their businesses and optimize their operations, which allows us both to continue to grow even in a tough environment."
