Based on strong business trends, the Company remains confident in its previous outlook for revenue and Modified EBITDA margin. This included the expectation that its 2014 revenue growth rate will be greater than that of 2013 and Modified EBITDA margin (excluding merger-related costs) will begin to expand toward the end of the year, as a result of anticipated higher revenue growth.

The Company continues to expect business fluctuations to impact sequential trends in revenue, margins and cash flow. This includes the timing, as well as any seasonality of sales and installations, usage, rate changes, disputes, settlements, repricing for contract renewals, and fluctuations in revenue churn, expenses, capital expenditures and taxes and fees.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
