Our financial position is solid with strong cash flow and debt-free balance sheet, says Lars Stugemo, President and CEO, HiQ.

The world has become a little smaller in 2012.

Over the past year HiQ has won numerous exciting new assignments relating to mobility solutions, while we have continued to secure a steady stream of undertakings in our other specialist fields.

“Significant for 2012 are all the projects that simplifies for us people. For example the mobile payment solution Swish, for client Bankgirot, makes it fast and easy to transfer money between people. In the automotive industry, we are involved in several projects that improve the environment and making driving both easier and safer. We look forward to, in any economic situation, to keep simplify, improve and develop new technology and business”, Stugemo concludes.
