Executive Comments

“Our year-over-year revenue growth of 19.4% was very strong,” stated Todd Cravens, Galaxy’s newly-appointed CEO.  "Consistent with statements made in our Q1 2017 earnings press release, near-term investments in our sales, marketing and compliance resources are negatively affecting affect our profits.  However, we continue to believe that those investments are necessary to position us for sustained growth over the long-term.”

“We had a small net loss in Q2 and a small net income for the first half of 2017,” said Harry Hagerty, the Company’s Chief Financial Officer. “But cash flow remains strong.  We generated nearly $1.3MM in cash from operations in the first half and paid down over $600K in debt.  In addition, in August, we paid down another $460K in debt.  Our pro forma leverage ratio, at 2.0x, is very manageable.”
