Dan Knotts

for the question. thanks Hey, Dan. Charlie, It's

attributable are our across our differentiated and the can I organic going because think to growth a that segmentation of the make continuing the on, capabilities refined think we the significant portfolio and our approach which our and of and demonstrate directly be such sales efforts how go-to-market of have I sales from focus channels can company we we services. value progress clients are portfolio in for we leveraging deliver have products to

Our side searching that's, solutions things. increased for to we going searching the searching they're and doing our in those both ability for engagement efficient them and more they're They're marketing drive help things. consumer all clients, have of their And of areas. results two business in ways to for business services side, turn,

I business even into step marketing drive services of level. segments a So we the realigning organization quarter the to have, solutions able taking focus greater and focused to that sales channel our and that during to next it's that the capabilities differentiated approach be think

service Now for I had quarter. and with thing other think the XX that the sales the of growth to offerings as mentioned, recognize quarter, product plays our during important seven Terry

and challenges Our Print It largest business, secular side. hard are there's the Commercial some on overcome. cards that the within specialty going Print but to the on by that space we're address significant down was impacted Commercial working also was

deliver the just particular though, not great services one quarter our doing seven teams across the app XX for a XX product in of demonstrates it's those we increase fact, – are job In seven can board. area, that

Charlie Strauzer

that if growth as similar see what line I'm you And QX. for correctly? doing organic some QX Terry, you also Does flat in – should trend saw my well talked about to math in that top QX imply we the

Terry Peterson

I year expect We net quarter, as as company to but to to up organic we absolutely, did the comparable whole, that Yes. small we of see in Yes, prior a be level well. Actually, anticipate mention will roughly we expect amount kind a of that the sales be growth period. and do. that the from do the benefits second FX quarter, would for first

Charlie Strauzer

Excellent. print And margins, then just to you in of additional terms us sales Can transaction sort frame that the signs as of Thanks. terms other of gears that little of logistic this of provide of business in will business. switching sense churns a help bit can maybe you any of the on color be revenue, well helpful?

Terry Peterson

because are different that sales we little But last look will a $XXX But eventually able Certainly, provide I I'm roughly to million for color will specific does and certainly of tell sales the announced to different. Logistics customer provide mean you try report this that I very year. they when about within it terms But will be a sales so that of business, us net of our portion in mix, sales million XXXX, we've represented how they report not can LSC basis. of that our jointly obviously $XXX begin number on deal. for for net us, Yes. Charlie, since large the I to was

business which sales, that there, that a of thing certainly other part important significant essentially in business, piece there have is is a so The as no of within was margin the piece that pass-through know that that too. postage is to print space logistics that of a

Clearly, I think a the that what So we're a to space. is articulate think Logistics tied terms. to as that we being solely business valuation that business. But the for you purchase this reducer price of didn't as about the normalized the here, terms, is selling a mean, margin or print

asset-light print multiple as for you be you akin thinking would in more So what should like you generalized logistics to see multiples, companies. the not think services expectations, about marketplace

Charlie Strauzer

with not also so is freight – not well. if that? of this asset-sensitive like anything how in much as things really of of you drivers asset-light It's a find really kind broker, terms will, And and a more like

Terry Peterson

not certainly would that employ. do from We outside. we procure the Yes, drivers that

Charlie Strauzer

appreciate for question, of imply quarter And trend one on the two? improving on just In think that sequentially I the still should should How the we more then the which you the respect improve things color, in EBITDA QX? there Great. Terry, from top is about EBITDA QX, QX line. to on that mentioned some

Terry Peterson

Yes, no-brainer say I as or anticipate the QX kind the not bankruptcy-related going and foresee to would think is certainly customers. about do biggest of of QX first you charge we our any to another

certainly, So we'd quarter to the would would one But that That at all. that to and we quarter. the change between repeat not expect end to or $X.X million, customers something have now our be first develop contemplated change. with nothing of second I for of in perspectives gave for

I sources some beginning recoveries continue like those extra market about of I see alternative have in to the that using rate move those, that kind you'll think of headwinds we the so continuation in what a did an that provided increasingly mention of even but better offsetting. year, and like will of though those, on, impact to we've other stuff arrangements, of adjustments, many think, of supplier for the quarter color since by is against many second as forward have is way outlook transportation, them our I thing, other you The the contemplated that

even honestly, added all So as certainly, reduction number to that. initiatives, second quite some certain year, certainly our that bit business of of accelerated we just those even benefit. programs cost continue to the improve flow-through and on continue after as into have have go offset we've some plans. pressure improvement to get a challenges, to contemplates see – a And in these normal QX we on regarding practice those quarter our every those And of We'll we areas. headwinds perspective we've two, and headwinds a price should ongoing

we'd to offset expect again, So some more ability that way.

Charlie Strauzer

improvements If say fair maybe should show in around of EBITDA, I QX year, million is growth which I of these mean, think was to of to that I'm last in comparing year-over-year QX it $XX some EBITDA? it some

Terry Peterson

entirely about hard lot our were happen rates, second weakening U.S. driven the that's guidance we quarter and see contemplates into in we the possible. of China hurt certainly largely speak the our explicitly saw quarter. but I our of We there's by and too and RMB first by But is certainly, dollar exchange – that side with a pretty range, range. as side there. plus in FX, the it of minus can possibility things continuing a so That's and in well. didn't that the We the quarter obviously, first as that certainly within on

Although to year-over-year the came a second just in start the will certainly improve the year, in an kind to bit quarter. and specifically benefit kind headwind what activity for and quarters charges come be what but of ongoing probably prior us given that of through
