I wonder if these results include Tri-ed and Clark Security? Anixter has a lot of exposure in IP Video being heavily entrenched with Axis. I wonder if/when Axis will start feeling the pinch from declining prices driven by HIK/Dahua and from the popularity of HD Analog.

Yes, they include all security.

And, for the same time period, Axis grew 5% organic in the Americas (see Axis Q1 2016 Financial Results).
