Boxlight (BOXL) to Report Q2 Earnings: What's in Store?

Zacks Equity Research
·3 mins read

Boxlight Corporation BOXL will report second-quarter 2020 results on Aug 14 before the bell.

The company’s earnings surprise history has not been impressive. It has a trailing four-quarter average negative earnings surprise of 54.7%

Q2 Expectations

Coronavirus-led disruptions in the education industry are expected to have negatively impacted Boxlight’s financial performance in the to-be-reported quarter. School closures and technical complications in distance learning are likely to have impacted demand for the company’s products.

Notably, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenues is pegged at $8.8 million, indicating a 20.7% decline from the year-ago quarter’s reported figure. Revenues increased 14.6% year over year to $5.7 million in first-quarter 2020.

The consensus mark for the bottom line is pegged at a loss of 5 cents. The company reported loss of 16 cents in the first quarter of 2020 and 11 cents in the second quarter of 2019.
