“In the second quarter, HiQ can report a good performance in what, in some respects, has been a challenging market. We have strengthened our order books with new framework agreements with key clients, and have created solutions in areas such as mobility and web platforms. In the second quarter we continue to recruit, increase our profit and improve our margin. We are maintaining a strong cash flow with a robust balance sheet,” says Lars Stugemo, President and CEO of HiQ.

HiQ works closely with its clients, always putting together first-class teams with the best experts.

Every day something new happens that could herald a revolutionary change. The world is spinning fast. We are spinning fast with it. And we are enjoying every second,” Lars Stugemo says.

“HiQ’s main market is the Nordic region, where the economic situation remains relatively strong. With our strong brand and stable finances the potential for HiQ to advance its positions here is good. We look forward to exciting new assignments in the adventure we call IT,” Lars Stugemo concludes.
