And that we, as a listed company, delivered 85 quarters out of 86 with very good profitability. Now as HiQ enters the next exciting stage, with Triton as a new owner, it feels as a natural step to hand over the helm. Now I look forward to support Sven Ivar and HiQ, but as an advisor instead of CEO. Full speed forward HiQ!”, says Lars Stugemo.
