Nick Bolton, CEO, said: "The first half of this year has seen a number of developments. Some of those, particularly in 2d3, have been challenging where we find ourselves with a great product, a strong customer pipeline, but also uncertainty in US Government budgets caused by sequestration. In spite of that, we've made a good number of real steps forward for the business in H1, such as further sales momentum with our Horizons platform in Yotta, the continued appeal of our Bonita range in Vicon and the finishing touches we've put to our ground breaking Autographer product. That work has required greater investment than we first envisaged, but the Board firmly believes that it will help to generate important sales progress in the second half and beyond."
