Descartes Systems Group (NASDAQ:DSGX) reported a 22% increase in net income in its second-quarter financial results Wednesday as the Canadian supply chain software provider pushed its profits higher on steady revenue growth.
Descartes had net income of $10.5 million, or 12 cents per share, on $84 million in revenue. The company’s revenue increased by 4% compared to a year earlier. The results were in line with analysts’ expectations, according to Yahoo Finance.
The results suggest demand for Descartes’ supply chain visibility products is outpacing strains on some customers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We had a great quarter,” Descartes CEO Edward Ryan told financial analysts during a conference call Wednesday evening.
Descartes saw an uptick in sales during the latter part of the quarter as global trade volumes recovered. But Ryan noted that some sectors continue to lag.
“Air cargo still has a way to go,” Ryan said.
“Lots of things are for sale right now,” Ryan said.
Ryan noted that valuations were high and the company would be cautious about paying a large premium on an acquisition target.
Descartes, meanwhile, is continuing with its global restructuring. The company is reducing its global workforce by 5% and eliminating certain locations to cut costs.
