Scott Switzer, the Company's Interim Chief Executive Officer stated, "Like many businesses, we continue to adapt and evolve in response to the global pandemic. Our "One Costar" initiative has led to increased collaboration across our subsidiaries which has opened the door to new opportunities by expanding our ability to introduce products into new markets. The initiative has also driven many efficiencies that increase our agility to respond to the ever-changing market environment.  I am encouraged by how well our team continues to navigate new challenges while remaining focused on providing industry leading customer service and support."

Sarah Ryder, the Company's Chief Financial Officer, went on to say, "During the third quarter we saw a nearly 7.5% increase in revenue over the prior quarter, while realizing the benefit of expense reduction efforts executed throughout the second and third quarters. There were large non-cash charges incurred in the quarter as we put a valuation allowance on our deferred tax asset, recognized an impairment loss on the goodwill associated with the Arecont Vision acquisition and modified our inventory excess and obsolescence reserve policy. We will continue to evaluate our cost structure to ensure alignment with potential COVID-19 related restrictions which may continue to impact revenue."
