INVISIO Interim Report January–June 2019: The strongest quarter so far

CEO comment
Order intake, sales and results in the second quarter are the highest so far and are largely attributable to the order worth SEK 111 million from the new customer USSOCOM (United States Special Operations Command). INVISIO also received a strategic break­through order from the German police, which is an important reference for addressing future customers in the police and security market. After the end of the period, the U.S. Marine Corps selected INVISIO for their Hearing Enhancement Program and placed an initial order of SEK 43 million. The positive performance, along with a broadening of the offer to include Intercom, and penetration of new user groups such as police and security services, means that we have every reason to be positive concerning INVISIO’s continued growth,” says Lars Højgård Hansen, CEO of INVISIO.
