Stockholm, November 30, 2012

INVISIO Communications (IVSO) has published its interim Report for January to September 2012. The report’s main bullets are below, and the report as a whole can be downloaded as pdf from INVISIO’s website.

Lars Højgård Hansen, CEO INVISIO Communications, comments:

” The lower sales during the quarter were balanced by the very pleasing new record order from the Armed Forces of a NATO country that we received after the end of the quarter. As previously communicated, we have during 2012 submitted offers on three large military programs where decision is expected at the earliest during the second half of 2012 and during 2013. The first decision within such a program – the new record order – was very positive and we believe and hope that it can lead to further success within these and new coming programs. Reference orders of this magnitude are very important in our continued sales work. The need for this type of communication we offer is large and we believe that the demand will increase significantly during the coming years.
