Factors at Play

WidePoint’s quarterly revenues are likely to reflect benefits from the 2020 Census project, which is the largest managed mobility services project in the United States.

Material increases on other contracts are also expected to have continued throughout the quarter.

Deal wins, especially from government agencies, are expected to have been a positive for the company.

Moreover, strong demand for WidePoint’s higher-margin revenue streams, including revenues from its managed services business, might have driven growth in adjusted EBITDA during the first quarter.
