Expectations This Time Around

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenues in the to-be-reported quarter stands at $928.3 million, indicating 1.9% increase from the year-ago quarter’s actual figure. The top line is expected to have benefited from increased demand for the company’s differentiated and digitally-enabled solutions.
