Cost cutting

May 10, 2019 Tariff increase to 25% scheduled to impact switching and routing hardware, as well as phones.

Costs to end-users on products manufactured in and imported from China are sure to increase, but OEMs have not yet committed to a specific cost increase, when that might occur, or specifically what product lines are impacted. Some OEMs moved core production to other countries after the initial 10% was imposed on Chinese goods. The full quantifiable impact is not yet known, but any hardware that is already in the United States is not subject to an increase. This includes everything that is in our inventory, and any hardware being sold in the secondary market.
