ViryaNet's innovative mobile capabilities and integrated Performance Management offering generated excitement among customers and partners at ViryaNet's Annual Customer Conference, held in May in Florida; "ViryaVision 2013" empowers customers for the mobile revolution. This excitement is well reflected in follow-up orders.
"We are pleased with the way our business continues to grow, although our second quarter results were impacted by several deals not closing in the period," stated Memy Ish-Shalom, President and Chief Executive Officer of ViryaNet. "While quarterly comparisons for our first half do not reflect the growth in our backlog or the increase in the size of opportunities in the pipeline, both direct and through partners, and with both existing and new customers, we are confident that 2013 is tracking to plan and will be a year of solid growth for us."
Mr. Ish-Shalom continued, "The demand for mobile workforce solutions is strong, as enterprises, large and small, seek to reduce their costs through greater efficiency, and build their reputation for providing outstanding customer service. Our approach is ideally designed for customers seeking to meet their current and future goals by embracing the opportunities presented by the mobile revolution. Our current backlog as of the end of the second quarter reflects a healthy flow of follow-on orders from our clients for additional services and maintenance that we will recognize over the balance of the year. Certain deals that we expected to close in the second quarter shifted to the third quarter, some of which have already closed, and we expect to sign additional business incremental to this in the third quarter. Based on our current visibility, pipeline, and positioning in the market place, we remain excited about the consistent growth opportunities we see for ViryaNet for the remainder of 2013 and beyond."
