Dedicated Micros Revenue Declines Continue

Author: John Honovich, Published on Oct 14, 2011

In the middle of the past decade, Dedicated Micros built itself into one of the leading surveillance recorder manufacturers in the world. Since then, the company has steeply and continuously declined. In this note, we examine UK financial records documenting the extent of Dedicated Micros's fall.

In 2006, at the company's peak, annual revenue was 83.7 Million GBP (~$130 Million USD) - a very substantial sum for an independent surveillance manufacturer. However, by the middle of 2010, annual revenue had sank to 54.5 Million GBP (~$85 Million USD) a decline of ~35% over the 4 year period.
