  • 2. LADENBURG THALM/SH SH analysts commented, "We spent time with company management on the BCOV user conference and the May 31. The company announced a number of new product introductions as is customary at its user conference, including OTT Flow X and multiple enterprise applications. OTT Flow X is designed to help companies launch an OTT offering rapidly. On the enterprise side, new innovations include interactive and personalized video experiences. While innovation continues, we view this period as a time of digestion from the major product launches released over the past two years. We believe new management is taking a measured approach. With a new CEO and new CFO, management is undergoing a business process review mainly focused on R&D and S&M." (6/6/2018)
