Ira Palti, President and CEO of Ceragon, commented, "Our results for the second quarter show improvement as compared with Q1, reflecting the return of many of our customers to their ongoing infrastructure projects and the beginning of the 'new normal.' Our focus has been to maintain an uninterrupted flow of services and equipment to these customers. At the same time, we have been strengthening our balance sheet and cash position, as evident by the quarter's reduction in inventories and healthy $4 million in positive cash flow, while also focusing on improving our results, increasing our revenues, margins and net results as compared with the first quarter."
"The new COVID-19 reality has brought a new urgency to 5G rollout and 4G network expansion plans, a trend that we expect to persist long after COVID-19 has passed. While no one knows exactly what the next few months will look like, we believe the situation plays to our strengths and will have a positive long-term effect. Meanwhile, we are financially stable, we expect our business to continue returning towards normal, and we are positioned to benefit from future opportunities."
