“We have heard the chatter—they say we’re crazy. Yesterday’s SuperCom June quarter earnings report marked the second consecutive year-over-year improvement in quarterly EBITDA in $1.9M generated on $5.7M in sales versus in sales. Sure, we see what appears to be the fourth quarter in a row of double- digit annual sales decline, but that trend merely serves to call attention to the underlying shifts, while the sequential sales stabilization—noted above—signals potential equilibrium. The farcical controversy lies in SuperCom’s 2018 audit, the white elephant standing next to each of the past two quarterly reports responsible for only a squint-eye view of SuperCom’s true financial position.”,” the firm’s analyst wrote.
