I.D. Systems, a leading provider of wireless M2M asset management solutions, rang the NASDAQ Stock Market Opening Bell today, Friday, August 15, 2014.

“The ringing of the opening bell celebrates our 15th year on the NASDAQ since our IPO in 1999,” said Kenneth Ehrman, I.D. Systems’ chairman and CEO. “It also highlights the progress we’ve made with our new ‘I.D. Systems 2.0’ strategy, designed to produce more sustainable, predictable growth and profitability commensurate with our blue chip customer base and unique technology.”

The company’s second quarter 2014 revenues were up 22% to a record $11.4 million, driven primarily by a 41% increase in sales of the company’s industrial vehicle management systems. The company recently reported several key customer wins, including major commercial contracts for its two new transportation asset management products.

“On behalf of our new board and executive team, I would like to thank our loyal employees, customers and investors for their support that has helped I.D. Systems achieve a leadership position in the multi-billion dollar M2M space,” Ehrman continued.

The event was broadcasted from the NASDAQ’s MarketSite in New York City starting at 9:15 a.m. Eastern time. CNBC and Bloomberg TV also covered the event.
