Casa Systems Feeling No Trump Tariffs Pain, Reports 4.1% Spike in Q3 Revenue

Casa Systems saw a 4.1% spike in third-quarter revenue to $71.5 million and said tariffs placed by the Trump Administration on select Chinese electronics imports are not hurting its business.

“I'm pleased to say that these tariffs have not--and we expect will not--have a significant impact on our business in 2018,” said Shaun McCarthy, interim CFO for Casa, speaking during the company’s third-quarter earnings call last week. (A transcript was provided by Seeking Alpha.)

“We have completed our review of our supply chain and are not expecting a significant impact to our costs for 2019,” McCarthy added. “We have a flexible manufacturing and supply chain and plan to monitor developments in this area to minimize the tariff-related impact to our cost profile going forward.”
