"Fiscal 2018 revenue also grew 3.5%; however, profitability for the year fell short of our expectations. While we made nice improvements in our fourth quarter, there is still more work to do. We are moving in the right direction and I am encouraged by our momentum as we head into 2019."

We have a lot of leverage in our business model that we can translate into higher levels of shareholder value. I am excited about the opportunities ahead of us," stated Michael Clarke, chief executive officer.
