Author: John Honovich, Published on Nov 06, 2012

After turning in a 'weak' quarter of 'only' 52% growth in Q2, Avigilon's growth jumped back up to 69% for Q3 2012. Plus, profitability soared, fueled by marketing investments and limited R&D expenditures. Now, Avigilon has the mega integrator Tyco on board, offering great promise to them yet a threat for their existing partners. Inside this note, we dig into the financials and future outlook.
