Management attributed the revenue declines (down 10% year-over-year) to ongoing operational issues related to administration of the 2016 E-rate program(roughly two-thirds of funding letters were approved by year-end, versus a nearly 90% approval rate a year ago), although the rest of the business performed largely as expected.
