But the stock has actually lost 8 per cent this morning, seemingly attributable to profit taking with the stock more than double what it was two years ago.
“We remain focused on delivering organic growth through geographic expansion and market penetration, complemented by quality acquisitions,” he said.
“Industry tailwinds in SD-WAN, Hosted Voice and Cyber Security provide a positive outlook for future growth and Over the Wire is well positioned to take advantage.”
Of these, the best money-maker was its data networks division which generated nearly half its revenue – $37 million. But it says its integrated offerings are one of its key advantages.
The company will pay a dividend of 2 cents per share.

Rent.com.au (ASX: RNT) has announced it now has over 600,000 renter resumes on its app. It works as an online profile so that clients can find rental properties and landlords can do due diligence on them. It also announced it was nearly at 150,000 pet resumes as it announced a new feature of that app. While 50 per cent of properties are pet-free zones, only 20 per cent of the other half proactively state pets are welcome.
