"While we are pleased that we were able to achieve 15% year-over-year revenue growth in the third quarter, the revenue shift to the lower margin inkjet business negatively impacted our earnings per share," said Guy Gecht, CEO of EFI. "Our inkjet business, which grew 36% year-over-year, including a record quarter for ink revenues largely offset the Fiery business, which came in below revenue expectations. We look for this trend to continue in Q4, as we maintain the strong growth in our inkjet business, putting continued pressure on margins." Mr. Gecht continued, "We are pleased that we have concluded the restatement of our financials and are now current with our SEC filings, allowing us to resume our share buyback activity."
