DecisionPoint (DPSI) Q2 Earnings & Revenues Top Estimates

DecisionPoint Systems DPSI reported second-quarter 2022 earnings of 10 cents per share, soaring 233.3% year over year and beating the Zacks Consensus Estimate of 3 cents per share.

Revenues increased 81.3% year over year to $27.5 million and topped the consensus mark by 28%. The top line was driven by broad-based strength across several verticals. Also, the company’s strong relationships with its OEMs and distribution partners have enabled it to partially ship orders worth $22 million from two retail clients and build up inventory for deals that will be shipped over the next few quarters, added DecisionPoint.

Synergies from acquisitions are likely to drive DecisionPoint’s performance. The company concluded two buyouts — Advanced Mobile Group and Boston Technologies — in the previous quarter. These acquisitions boost the company’s position in the lucrative transportation and direct store delivery verticals.
