TASER International Beats on Q4 Earnings & Revenues (Revised)

Zacks Equity Research

Scottsdale, AZ-based TASER International Inc. TASR is a developer and seller of conducted electrical weapons (CEWs) equipped for use in law enforcement, military and other defense markets across the world. More than 850,000 TASER weapons have been sold since 1994 to more than 18,000 law enforcement agencies.

TASER has a growing suite of technology solutions, including Axon body-worn video cameras and Evidence.com, a secure digital evidence management platform.

However, TASER faces intense competition in this space from various other body-mounted video camera making companies. This could definitely pose a challenge for the company going forward.
