there's so, over. And opportunity absolutely all

been funding, programs market, systems applied. funding say be I federal we're will Europe, world. available Germany that's and in as more then certain U.S. other in other the seeing beyond as well, federal But internationally that there well again, and absolutely then far number one school territories the it would are around substantially countries. But there's funds as as where throughout U.S. other for federal is territories other Now,

Mark Starkey

growth significant so rates. Okay,

Unidentified Analyst

you to the Given the one - of year, maybe annual federal expect some significantly package of be a of account the this and other year, the the in the the seasonality second of half recent, about in meaning timing world, around countries pronounced in talked do for might funding some U.S. be might higher percentage more being revenue? more

Michael Pope

a question. good That's

spending you'll year think of more Act I that it's spent of receiving CARES of the that CARES that's that I that money. money. think will money later we're be a are absolutely available, seen to that March remember billion be play still how made If be a $X in yet say last figuring And Act Act about spending allocated quickly, the think CARES some quickly will orders year. are funds these was with where CARES being in case. seeing went part CARES now out.

we lag year. for we're definitely going with expect do stronger seasonality, second in. a to of vast year, the the that certain. that's is see the anticipate of to I first going of lot flowing than have But majority more would year next to a into half So half money

Unidentified Analyst

that And margin, you're hop more and any in more is expect any this on that revenue on you one you there margin? chain? if orders, about then any long have any and And continuing and Can also talk I more. I might you queue, I'll the building and can on inventory, to color gross last? seeing mentioned the impact think give impact? on you Is about how there supply Okay. gross back quantifiable X% but

Michael Pope

me cover then, the the let part tackle latter And so question. Yeah, of the rest. I'll

far So timing, It's as as global it's problem. uncertain. a

and industry, as even industry. those in mentioned remarks, of. it's many seeing components that affecting technology, shortages we well and we're As potential metals our outside Anybody chips utilizes in as of and and our our for plastics,

of managing I can. advance. the we in we're the out We're we've say through will that out best the We ordered end remarks, ordering well mentioned So in year. the

out. X beyond that's we well lead seeing months. order would where So to of times X normally We're

little major meeting But planning to in not deliveries. slippages in this point uncertainty going we're There we're timeframe. believe our generally, to affected It that's we'll manage has more we said, that QX, everything like to I deliveries. so, QX. still us accordingly. QX, been timeframes. way is our in some doing We a delivery we're time And happen of But can in that. around have meet There a

better [ph], far As related seeing reasons] advantageous seeing X%, we're I we then far some as have competition, orders impact, as off be think orders. And impact on shipping we'll may And maybe else. to gone not financial the the that you costs. somewhere amount orders, that's advantage heard on of and putting if orders. impact receiving think than a We're because [printing could then be as tremendous I we're

the had gross margin. when remember adjust our gross profit we're with. adjustments, we the gross QX profit And which also you manufacturers. that That on And In But to, that goods comparable our see can. in able were compared cost cases, bill we're accounting our that in that's we can profit, in of you of that's seeing to best we the of of to the prices negotiate and been XX best are customers. additional prices those points, purchase our And helps we've for XX% materials components from cost technologies. the way offset and to the margin, increases offset we can We a trying in in in increase with manufacturers. happy about many increases QX XX.X%

the increase more right these got in we as think of trending around cost, points direction. around start profit We that normalize, as we're those in around XX concerns margin. freight and towards gross some materials, to So to gravitate

Patrick Foley

would in I of and terms pre-planning. in terms of we're that, the of terms to add also what Michael, just in supply points chain doing

So you'll the of moving the sheet, shift see into for on balance look being in terms actually our inventory, when you our capital, so increased actually that. working prepared

this many and to and universally Is already that up territories and you're and it school all and is Or country. it. different You're all districts? or should your then districts spotty, of so kind say, across happening ramping classrooms the I here, penetrated off across on

Mark Starkey

everywhere. It's I it's want you that? to do Mike, everywhere, mean, simply, consistent. It's take right?

Michael Pope

beyond school to provide we that. utilize helps around that's read there's guide just They knows and funds, understand they're access how utilization of looking lot So countries couple a detailed that. can and guide a we other of put of funds to ago. funds. weeks those funds. that scrambling that everybody have a out allocated, out that provide more resources same of those U.S. team a funds we thing, guide there we're do and where accessing to the funds, the And resources and to funds a of But And understand additional also districts new happy the that those about and are access Outside districts. the

Mark Starkey

just bit more I info. Yeah, mean, a

Sorry, the the in just state things key is other to Jack, look I U.S. that the rate. could at penetration

the IFPDs rate penetration actually of the So lower significantly is U.S. than in EMEA.

is That greater means in the opportunity Okay. us for significantly the U.S.

So are business. we of that's growth our U.S. why expecting from side rates the significant such

Jack Vander Aarde

an a opportunity have they districts been an that Got imagine terms I'm lot school that get may was districts actually follow-up on what - overall their is this the of this the coming haven't of coming that's if to that, into of your opportunity. open that knocking in or classrooms some technologies expecting happen. implemented many way, into yet door servicing of then because on helping didn't of to and there's districts interactive customers to have door? up, those and you a I be federal other like built classrooms. it. saying - weren't now or already because you they to already you brought renovated, federal in Which any I'm I have already that going could now, they're glad lot that newer just you funding kind funding, to - How technology for their new but actually does make to

Michael Pope


refreshes, that. the would have technologies new absolutely there allocated. of some their Jack, are districts, So I districts or who are planning add but lot X, technology a funds didn't they there's and of And, on

to think, accelerating decisions. they of think And now those point, funding new some of thoughts, Mark's couple so they're I that important. this I are have But, coming,

the opportunity that the districts doing So technologies an put they in could have large panels, most with sell, of even we're to to flat hardware those also a but districts have sell, one X are play, solutions is us technologies a various it's we years or there's year refreshes have ago. life for it that selling solutions, definitely about interactive don't XX of been X And X cycle.

been selling X refresh. doing San And a we've about of Clayton you with we're or solutions, or interactive that technology County later, flat in Carolina, if of talked Diego, X replacing old right actually high panels stores that or our whiteboards are flat you technologies districts refreshes so some they're in and those our interactive of competitors app other districts. technologies, we're were where major install County which Montgomery at those like when Beaufort look other XK largest including. the interactive newer And definition panels, County, with years we've And to these South Georgia,

Mark Starkey

they mean, on every and high we've And - those $XX,XXX spend potential of much classroom mean, are spend, to And classrooms. for solutions we pretty up average, a at I just know U.S. lot the going in got single there. like, home? what it's technology has is effectively I

positioned. So we're well

Jack Vander Aarde

on guidance it. another That's the my very is And helpful, guys. guidance, expectations. of ahead then Got strong second just question just quarter

million, wondering or much $X - how EBITDA of of supply conservative of your $XX is is shortage revenue million like that a just it, this of comments on For hiccups? $X.X adjusted at that at So components, given for adjusted how into million and that conservative built number given wiggle some did cushion $X just XX you into about how - if adjusted EBITDA, room basically that's least least was target And much Because less - out you are risk just to Just baking there? the gross or over million figure on not? margin first that? a revenue? quarter maybe trying EBITDA, a of for just

Michael Pope

Jack. reason It's that, a X for

gives those risk its we some around in costs taking our on been some delivery as then adjusted right, buffer expansion some well. marketing sales absolutely higher as a team that bit potentially absolutely spend. little we've little expansion, And for of well, also, of focused been OpEx, focused share. increasing we've broadening us well you're market is goods. our And and it our as bring the inventories, of for of as a our But X on So

combination least X. say at We it's So of those right.

And be a So than provide. room to conservative was that. higher than higher that. much to there's definitely will be some we expect we estimate million that But, $X

Jack Vander Aarde

you couple making maybe we took that in what's in did focus, you market It's quickest share region? just spoke. see Australia, maybe last around shares, you headwinds. then been been lastly, just a the geographical since market an X material And Okay. any you've geographical of of of you mention or update number up climbing noticeable yourself, quarter, the - share month terms next getting your are one months, that ladder maybe terms market the only a last But in

Mark Starkey

do me want you to take it, Michael, take you Do it? or to want

Michael Pope

Mark. go ahead, Yeah,

Mark Starkey

in report, out Yeah, well, the that terms X so terms in weeks' data, of about comes that of next time. one

I potentially it's we're be second UK; selling and the at that looking market in we'll really the strong, doing actually going that have we're market, terms IFPD volumes where U.S.; staggering, able of to in think, think where in terms and where think, we we're statistics we'll volume. shortly. the Germany; quite the And our I already share, I we're we're think we effectively the position. growth and But whether take, growth, in could doing I'm that quantities very the I that actual we actual get share. take see I to the then So of are

market are other think the share targets for in key I taking and then northern us, parts really in taking of the share U.S., market Europe. Germany, So

can best So that's probably guide the we give.

Jack Vander Aarde
