Cambium Networks Corporation CMBM reported relatively modest second-quarter 2022 results, with the bottom line beating the Zacks Consensus but the top line missing the same. The company expects to strengthen its technology roadmap and strategy to continue its growth momentum.
On a GAAP basis, net income in the June quarter was $2.3 million or 8 cents per share compared with $11.5 million or 40 cents per share in the prior-year quarter. The year-over-year decline was primarily attributable to top-line contraction owing to global supply-chain constraints and lower shipments due to component shortage.
Non-GAAP net income came in at $5 million or 18 cents per share compared with $12.9 million or 45 cents per share in the year-ago quarter. The bottom line beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 12 cents.
