Richard Parris, Chairman & Chief Executive of Intercede, said:

“We continue to execute our strategy of attacking multiple markets within the broader spectrum of identity and credential management. The more mature market is where our MyID product has entrenched itself as the industry standard, based on a high margin and strongly cash generative business model. This in turn provides the financial stability to invest in the second strand of our strategy, which is to use our technical knowledge and industry network to exploit newer opportunities based on the convergence of mobile data, cybersecurity and the Internet of Things. While we must be mindful of the fact that because they are new, the timing of the conversion of these opportunities into committed orders is harder to predict, we are increasingly confident that the success we have enjoyed in delivering the first part of our strategy will be replicated.”
