Read MoreHide Full Article

Cambium Networks Corporation (CMBM - Free Report) is scheduled to report fourth-quarter 2020 results on Feb 18, after the closing bell. In the last reported quarter, the company delivered a positive earnings surprise of 61.1%. It pulled off a trailing four-quarter earnings surprise of 137.8%, on average.

The Rolling Meadows, IL-based company is expected to have recorded higher revenues year over year. The performance is likely to have been primarily driven by growth in demand for wireless broadband connectivity. Cambium is a leading provider of wireless networking infrastructure solutions.

During the quarter under review, RP tech India — a leading value-added technology distributor — announced a distribution agreement with Cambium. The company supplied Tizeti Network Limited — Nigeria’s leading public Wi-Fi operator — with a wireless fabric solution.

Cambium deployed its 60 GHz cnWave solution to deliver multi-gigabit throughput to expand broadband access to residential and industrial locations. It joined the Qualcomm Smart Cities Accelerator Program to connect smart applications using its Gigabit wireless fabric. These developments are likely to have had a positive impact on the company’s top line.

For the December quarter, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenues is pegged at $77 million, indicating growth of 20.3% from the year-ago quarter’s reported figure. The consensus estimate for adjusted earnings per share is pegged at 27 cents, which suggests a rise of 200%.
