Management Commentary

“The second quarter marked a period of steady operational progress for WidePoint, as we continued to make focused and judicious investments in our staff and technology, in addition to further enhancing our sales and marketing resources and processes,” said WidePoint’s CEO, Jin Kang. “In particular, we have been making significant investments toward improving our solution delivery infrastructure to increase our gross margins, and to have tangible solutions that can increase our total addressable market and be leveraged by our commercial enterprise and federal government customers. In conjunction with the investments in our solution delivery infrastructure we are also revamping our sales and marketing tactics to capture all possible synergies with customers and to maximize our organic growth efforts. Moreover, even with Census phasing out from a financial perspective, we continue to reap indirect benefits, as we’ve been receiving an increase of inbound requests for demos and RFPs, that should translate to topline growth. Although we remain laser-focused on executing our near-term initiatives, we are somewhat restricted by macro headwinds, such as the pandemic with the lingering Delta variant strain, but we are cautiously optimistic on our long-term outlook, due to the growing tailwinds within our mobile ecosystem, in conjunction with our organic and inorganic growth strategies.”
