For the six months ended 30 June 2019, profit before tax rose to US$2.1m from US$0.8m as revenues increased by 29.9% to $71.9m.

In the first half of the year, the company commenced sales of its US-targeted slimline Eastern Arc LNB (low noise block downconverter), following the successful launch of the Western Arc model in late-2018 and was initially the sole source supplier for these DTH products.

'We have made a strong start to 2019 buoyed by our recent acquisition of Apexsat and good customer traction across our DOS and DTH satelite solutions,' the company said.
