A Big Beat in Q4 2018

Revenue jumped 125% to $12 million in the quarter, ahead of the company's guidance of $11 million. That's a big turnaround from the $5.3 million in sales in the fourth quarter of 2017.
It saw greater adoption of the company's product solution suite.

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.
Estimates Revised Higher

Analysts expect sales to jump 24.9% in 2019, in line with the company's guidance, and another 21.6% in 2020.
Shares Soar Triple Digits Year-to-Date
