Clavister Q2 2019: 28% growth, 42% improved gross profit

August 28, 2019. Örnsköldsvik, Sweden. Clavister, a leader in high-performance cybersecurity solutions, released its latest quarterly report today.

“The second quarter started with a very positive recognition: in a market report for 2018, independent industry analyst Gartner recognized Clavister as the fastest-growing supplier of security products within the Unified Threat Management segment. Not only is this an honorable appreciation, but more so a very positive acknowledgement of our growth strategy.

Our focus on growth and improved margins has paid off during the quarter, with a year-on-year order intake growth of 28%. With that, we closed our eleventh consecutive quarter of year-on-year growth, corresponding to an average quarterly order intake growth of 28%. Due mainly to a beneficial product mix, the quarter provided a good improvement to our gross profit, increasing year-on-year with 42%”
