“I am very pleased with the financial results for our first quarter as our Restaurant/Retail segment revenues grew more than 52% from the prior year’s first quarter. The strong first quarter performance was driven by significantly higher demand for our restaurant hardware products and continued deployments of our Brink POS software. Offsetting the Restaurant/Retail growth was the decline in our Government segment revenues as they continue to be impacted by the transition from lower margin Program Management Office (PMO) contracts to more higher margin, value-add contracts in Intelligence, Surveillance & Reconnaissance (ISR),” commented Dr. Donald H. Foley, President & CEO of PAR Technology Corporation. “We are off to a strong start to the year, as we were able to leverage the accelerated hardware technology deployment of a strategic customer in Q1. We expect to sustain our momentum for the remainder of the year but at a more moderate pace.”
