Commenting on the performance of the asset management division, CEO Nick Bolton said: “while we had a slower start to the year, the transition to SaaS is now complete and following investment in our product and our people, momentum is building.”

The motion measurement division performed well, with Nick telling investors: “In our motion measurement division, including Vicon, we have invested in sales & marketing bolstered our position as market leader and enter entirely new markets in Elite Sports and LBVR, where we now have a significant opportunity to scale.”
