“Our strategy is to build on our leading position in providing navigation technologies to business customers. We are setting our priorities for the future, strengthening support for our growing B2B products. In the quarter, combined revenue of Automotive, Licensing and Telematics grew by 18% year on year and the gross margin that we generate as a Group improved from 60% to 65%. Our Consumer segment will represent less than half of total revenue in the running year. Consumer Drive will continue to provide a valuable platform for consumer insight and collecting location data.”
