INVISIO Interim Report January–June 2018: Growth and continued strategic initiatives

CEO comment

”In comparison with the second quarter of 2017 this year’s quarter is characterized by increased sales and an improved gross margin. We have a strong position in NATO and our long-term customer contracts answer for the quarter’s sound sales and very good order intake. The determined initiatives now taking place in product development and in the market are aimed at ensuring future expansion and in the short perspective will imply some strain on earnings”, says Lars Højgård Hansen, CEO of INVISIO.
