The company's net loss on the quarter also shrank to $0.6 million from $4.6 million a year ago, a decrease of 87%.
Bullish on 2019's Revenue Gains
In guidance for 2019, given its current business pipeline, backlog and contracts, Boxlight expects 2019 revenue to increase by at least 25% over 2018, which was $37.84 million.
Gross margins are also expected to remain in the 25-30% range as it expects higher margin hardware, software and professional services to contribute more heavily to revenue.

Shares Soar Triple Digits Year-to-Date
