How was the quarter?
Despite the adverse operating climate, VERO’s third-quarter sales results demonstrate robust demand from clients, notably in the United States. Strong execution of the targeted commercial strategy in the United States delivered a revenue increase of 67% year over year, offsetting a 10% drop in overseas sales.
Due to the global supply disruptions related to COVID-19, the company was unable to meet the demand for certain of the products, resulting in a backlog of $2.4 million in customer purchase orders received at the end of the third quarter, of which $1.4 million was fulfilled in the first half of the fourth quarter. The company is still actively working with the suppliers and third-party manufacturers to address supply challenges, and the company expects to complete the remaining customer purchase order backlog in the fourth and first quarters of the fiscal year 2021 and 2022.
