Black Box Is Set To Release First-Quarter Earnings Monday

Black Box has been struggling to right the ship since the company’s stock value plunged 62 percent in 2015. Joel Trammell, the company's third CEO since that nosedive, believes the company is positioned for growth in the next two years. Under his leadership, Black Box has won an extension on paying down $150 million in debt and is in the midst of selling its federal business.

But the clock is ticking. The Lawrence, Pa.-based solution provider has said that a deal for the federal business must close by the end of the month to keep the banks from calling in the debt.
