Thanks to our team’s flexibility, we also achieved record revenues of $833,000, and we exited the quarter with a $1.5 million backlog, which indicates that our sales channel remained robust despite the complications caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Subsequent to the quarter’s end, we also strengthened our leadership team with the appointment of Marc Thomas as our CEO, whose expertise will be integral to the next phase of Wrap’s evolution.”
