Letter To The Shareholders

After the strong result posted in 2015, and despite more challenging circumstances, u-blox can look back on another good year. Robust growth in Asia and Europe and with the ramping up of new products brought a 25% increase over 2015. However, unexpectedly slow demand in the USA in 2016 obliged us to correct our guidance figures, as events on the far side of the Atlantic could not be compensated. The profit outlook was finally little impacted and we post a record result. Our share value remained stable at CHF 191.20.
