Our Quixant brand designs, develops and engineers gaming computers and software solutions for the wager-based gaming and sports betting industries.

News from the boardroom

“We are seeing increasing demand for our specialist technology outsource solutions following the recovery in our end markets. This has led to a strong improvement in trading in 2021, with revenues reaching pre-pandemic levels in the second half of the year. Demand in the first quarter of 2022 has remained strong, with order intake ahead of current year revenues and prior year order book.

As with all technology businesses, supply chain issues have been a challenge and have impacted margins, however we have demonstrated resilience in 2021 through close customer and supplier management and deployment of our cash to enable strategic stock purchases. While we expect these challenges to persist, our financial strength and global supply network positions us well to manage these through 2022. There are no structural reasons why our margins will be compromised in the long-term.

Our strategic positioning, strength of order book and proven operational effectiveness position us well for sustained growth in 2022 and beyond.”

Investment Case

QXT is a business with multiple revenue growth opportunities, both organic and through acquisitive means. We have built a successful business focussed on delivering technically innovative products targeted at specific vertical markets.

We know that our ability to generate vertical market focussed technology has wider applications in other new markets. Through Densitron we can and are identifying new focus verticals that can augment our growth beyond gaming. The broadcast market is one such market. Today the opportunity is in its infancy but is already starting to gain momentum.
