SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$INSG #5G—Inseego Corp. (Nasdaq: INSG), a pioneer of 5G and intelligent IoT device-to-cloud solutions, today announced preliminary revenue for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020 and revenue outlook for the second quarter ending June 30, 2020.
Since early March, Inseego has experienced growing demand for its entire range of mobile connectivity products as the COVID-19 pandemic spurs higher work-from-home, distance learning, and telehealth trends.

For the first quarter of 2020, the company expects total revenues will exceed current consensus of $52 million. The company plans to release these first quarter financial results on May 6, 2020.

The company expects to ship mobile broadband products to all three of the largest US domestic mobile network operators in the second quarter. Furthermore, the company expects to see increased gross margins in IoT & Mobile Solutions based on the ongoing cost reduction initiatives and volume leverage.

“Working with our supply chain partners, we’ve dramatically increased production capacity to meet the surge in demand for our products, and we’re confident in our ability to quickly scale up even further to meet the needs of our customers worldwide.
