MagicJack said second-quarter sales will be between $37.5 million and $38.5 million, up from a previous estimate of $36 million.
“It looks like sales of devices and renewals are strong, which bodes well for future growth,” Tim Horan, a communications and cloud services analyst at Oppenheimer & Co., wrote in an e-mail to Bloomberg today.
