  • Fulfilled delivery of the remaining equipment on the $2.8 million U.S. Army contract the Company received in 2019.

  • Was selected to to provide High Definition ‘Live’ On-Board Video Systems for the prestigious European Ferrari Challenge Race Series.

“In the first quarter, we took actions to put the organization’s finances on a stable footing and provide a pathway to future business success,” said Carleton Miller, CEO of Vislink Technologies. “We implemented an OPEX cost reduction plan with the goal of aligning costs with revenue, and have already achieved appreciable savings, particularly in general and administrative expenses through headcount and other cost reductions. We expect to record additional cost savings in subsequent quarters. We also optimized our supply chain, which has improved our ability to capture and fulfill business. We continue to have access to the capital we require to adequately fund our operations, as shown by the $6 million public offering we completed.”

Mr. Miller continued, “We also further reorganized into the following four solution areas: Live Event Production, Military/Government, Satellite Communications and Managed Service. To that end, we made key new hires to lead these areas of the business with an emphasis on targeted product differentiation and customer-focused decision-making. Finally, we have taken important steps to weather the economic slowdown caused by the effects of COVID-19, including securing funding under the Paycheck Protection Program and maintaining essential business operations. We are confident this will allow us to seize new opportunities as business activity begins to return and help us achieve our goal of reaching sustainable and profitable growth.”
