    • Digital Ally (NASDAQ:DGLY) expects to report Q2 revenue of $5.5M, up 25% Q/Q and over 55% Y/Y.
    • Seven $100K+ orders were shipped in Q2, and FirstVU body camera shipments topped 2K. Gross margin is said to have "improved significantly" from a Q1 level of 38.9% (was down sharply Q/Q and Y/Y).
    • The company still expects 2015 sales of ~$25M, up ~40% Y/Y. However, due to higher-than-expected spending, DGLY no longer expects to hit a 2015 op. income forecast of $2.5M, though it does expect to be profitable.
    • Shares -1.1% premarket to $13.26. They fell sharply in May following the Q1 report.
