“The hard work over the past few years is visible in our fiscal 2017 results, with sales up 27% and EBITDA nearly doubling from last year”, said Bill Wignall, President and CEO of Sangoma. “The transition of the company to one with a full unified communications suite, available in both Cloud and Premise based versions, has laid the foundation for further expansion. Sales this quarter exceeded $7m for the first time, and Cloud-based services, software and support revenues continue to grow as an important part of our corporate strategy. I’m particularly pleased to see our operating margins continuing to strengthen, with EBITDA above 9% of sales this year, compared to about 7% in fiscal 2016. I’m pleased with the early impact of the VoIPSupply acquisition just after year end, and the company continues to seek further prudent acquisitions where appropriate. Overall, I’m excited by Sangoma’s consistent ability to build our business in this challenging environment of change and I am confident that we can maintain this progress.”
Gross profit was $17.53 million for the year. Gross margin was 65% for the year and 64% in the most recent quarter. The company continues to experience the expected margin pressure due to competitive pricing, products in its portfolio at various gross margins, and differing sales models and regions. We expect this trend to continue.
