Thanks, Brian!

What division do you think they will put the Point Grey acquisition? It could certainly continue to mask the drop in organic security revenue were its (or even a small portion of it) revenue to added in to security. Or maybe they are starting a new division for Industrial Imaging?

We actually covered that in the Point Grey acquisition report you linked to:

Point Grey will fall within FLIR's OEM & Emerging Markets division, expanding FLIR's ability to provide optical imaging solutions to their industrial customers.

If the ~$100M revenue estimate for Point Grey is not too far off, that could make the OEM & Emerging markets division overtake Security for the #3 spot, unless Security posts a large revenue spike (which seems unlikely for 2016).

missed it, thanks!

The "Outlook" section reframes the big picture in a way I hadn't considered - not because it was obscured or anything, I'm just not used to those brands working together in such a way. If they can consolidate everything into one well-oiled machine instead of a handful of unrelated surveillance brands, it'd be very impressive.

They really need to get better at marketing the VMS for this to work though. Not just raising awareness - I mean they have to provide a compelling reason for buyers to take a demo.

UPDATE - FLIR released results for Q4 2016, the Security division ended up with almost 6% growth YoY, with $240M in revenue.

 

FLIR is also recruiting a new CEO, with current CEO Andy Teich retiring after 33 years with the company.

Teich came to FLIR via a previous acquisition and has been a strong proponent of thermal cameras and technology. It will be interesting to see what a new CEO does with FLIR's diverse portfolio.
