INVISIO Interim Report January–September 2019: New agreements are milestones in INVISIO’s development

CEO comment
“The third quarter together with October constitutes one of the most successful periods in the company’s history. In the quarter we won the prestigious procurement contract for the American Marine Corps, where the potential is great for us in coming years. After the close of the quarter we won three significant procurement contracts and signed long framework agreements. The largest contract, which may amount to SEK 290 million, is with the American Department of Defense. The second customer is the Belgian army and the third contract is with the Swedish Police. These four substantial successes mark clear milestones in the company’s development and will contribute to INVISIO’s continued growth journey for several years to come,” says Lars Højgård Hansen, CEO of INVISIO.
