"I want to congratulate our team on a record quarter, showing outstanding year-over-year growth across key financial metrics," said Shaun Maine, chief executive officer. "Demand was extremely strong as we generated approximately $575-million in product orders from customers throughout Q1, combined with an improvement in the supply chain, where $250-million of the $350-million backlog that we reported in Q4 was invoiced in Q1. With now over $472-million in product backlog entering [second quarter], accounting for 24 per cent of Converge's total 2021 gross revenue, Converge is poised for strong double-digit organic growth as the supply chain normalizes."
