Harris Technology Group (HT8) has reported unaudited revenue of $9.58 million for the December 2020 quarter.
The IT and consumer electronics business makes and sells products such as mobile phone accessories, inks and toners, antivirus software and gaming products.
The revenue for this period followed closely behind Harris' record $9.8 million in revenue for the September quarter. However, the latest revenue figure is a significant increase from the $2.35 million posted in the December 2019 quarter.
For the six months ending December 31 2020, Harris' unaudited half-year revenue jumped 373 per cent compared to the previous corresponding period, launching from $4.1 million to $19.39 million.
In terms of expenditure, Harris spent about $8.8 million on inventory purchases. Overall, the consumer discretionary stock spent $9.27 million on inventory, advertising, and staff and admin costs.
This sum is roughly $2.5 million less than what Harris spent in the previous quarter, which was largely fuelled by preparations for the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales event.
