In the 10-Q report, management's discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations (unaudited) highlighted several key points. The company reported total orders of $1,219 million for the three months ended April 30, 2024, representing an 8% decrease compared to the same period last year. For the six months ended April 30, 2024, total orders amounted to $2,439 million, reflecting a 7% decrease year-over-year. Revenue for the three and six months ended April 30, 2024, was reported at $1,216 million and $2,475 million, respectively, indicating a 13% and 11% decrease compared to the same periods last year. The revenue decline was attributed to lower revenue from both the Communications Solutions Group and the Electronic Industrial Solutions Group.

Net income for the three and six months ended April 30, 2024, was $126 million and $298 million, respectively, compared to $283 million and $543 million for the same periods last year.
