An Opportunity In The Making

Considering this, the $3 million deal is a very big deal that represented a large chunk of the company’s market cap before the market reacted. However, the implications of this deal go far beyond what we’re seeing today.

First and foremost, every time a new order is placed under the terms of this agreement, chances are that the order will act as a positive catalyst, sending the stoc furhter up. Moreover, this is the largest deal of its kind. As such, the company is quickly emerging as a leader in its space.

Moreover, the healthcare organization vetted 20 different providers before chosing EFOI. As a result, it’s clear that the company has a competitive advantage. If it didn’t, it would not have been chosen by the client.

All in all, this news has the potential to change the shape of EFOI moving forward.
