"The transformation of magicJack is well underway and we expect our updated branding and expanding distribution channels to pay dividends as the year progresses. The company remains well positioned to execute its growth strategy due to its strengthened balance sheet, nationally recognized brand, established customer base, high visibility distribution channels and low cost technology platform."
