“We are encouraged by our second quarter revenue growth, which increased 17% sequentially over the first quarter of 2013 as well as 8% year-over-year,” said Jeffrey Jagid, I.D. Systems’ chairman and CEO. “We continue to be optimistic about our prospects for the second half of 2013 and remain committed to our revenue growth strategy, which has proven successful over the past three years. We are working to build revenue vertically by expanding our footprint with core enterprise customers, and diversify revenue horizontally by establishing new customers, utilizing both channel partners and our direct sales organization.
“We also remain committed to expanding and monetizing the intellectual property behind our wireless solutions to maintain our technical leadership in the markets we serve: industrial vehicle management, transportation asset management, and rental car management.
“With respect to our rental car business, we have deployed our systems on approximately 30,000 rental vehicles in North America for Avis Budget Group, our exclusive partner in this market. On August 1, 2013, we entered into a memorandum of understanding with Avis Budget to cooperate on the development of a new generation of in-vehicle wireless devices to automate all Avis Budget car rental environments, including airport lots, virtual lots, and car sharing applications. Under this MOU, we are negotiating an amendment to our 2011 master agreement with Avis Budget and, to facilitate those negotiations, have agreed with Avis Budget to extend our mutual exclusivity until September 30, 2013.”
