Rob Capps, MIND’s Co-CEO, commented,
They began to feel the effects of the global supply chain problems that have been extensively publicized during the first quarter of fiscal 2022. While not a major concern at the moment, supply chain issues have caused a number of goods to have longer lead times. Customers did not obtain supplementary products from third parties in some circumstances, which caused them to postpone delivery from MIND. Furthermore, especially with ocean freight, MIND and its clients have encountered lengthier shipment times. Their first-quarter earnings were lower than expected as a result of these issues. They’ve made efforts to address these concerns, and they anticipate considerable progress in the coming quarters.
