The company’s long-term revenue growth rate will be in the low single digits, Myers said. In addition, the CEO, Enrique Lores, argues that office equipment needs to be upgraded to take advantage of the uptick in demand from corporations. As for the company’s printer business, Enrique has shifted it to a subscription model. Lores is trying to expand the company’s reach by offering a variety of printing solutions and a move into PC peripherals. Sales fell short of expectations due to a shortage of semiconductors. The company’s CFO said on Monday that the company’s improving operations are taking place in a supply-driven environment.
