While Dahua and Hikvision, helped by fever camera sales, are recovering from COVID-19 shocks, Infinova, is still experiencing significant decreases in sales and profits.

However, Infinova's results are mixed. The US/China video surveillance manufacturer who, in addition to its own Infinova branded sales, also owns March Networks and Swann. Of these 3 businesses, one modestly grew, one modestly fell and the other fell sharply.

In this post, we examine Infinova's H1 2020 financial disclosures and what this means for Infinova going forward, including:

  • Infinova management feedback to IPVM on overall strategy
  • Breakdown in revenue growth / decline
  • Declining sales in video surveillance
  • March Networks management feedback to IPVM on March's positioning
  • H2 performance potential
