On the investor call, Avigilon stated that the $12M in capital expenses was "mostly related to building renovations", which they recently sold for $107 million CAD.
I didn't see anything about the leaseback part of the sale in the call, (like the rent for instance), did I miss it?
Also, they continue to insist that the licensing program is in its infancy, with AF downplaying its current and near term impact and not even knowing the number of licensees. Do you think this is for lack of effort or have they decided not to play hardball?
I also thought him not knowing the number of licensees for the analytics licensing program, which has been heavily touted, was an interesting comment on the call. Though I can see why keeping a lot of that information private helps them when negotiating with new companies, if you do not know the growth rate or other details of the program in general it is harder to negotiate.
I did not make the call, was there any more talk around the $500 million annual revenue, or the now quarterly 'run-rate'? Outside of analytics, was there any strong indication of strategy moving forward?

Avigilon's interpretation of $500 million was 'run rate' in Canadian dollars, meaning a single quarter of $125 million CAD (equivalent currently to ~$92 million USD), which they achieved in Q3 and Q4 2016.
