Commenting, Matt Sassone, Chief Executive Officer of LiDCO, said: “We’ve had a good start to the year as we were able to transition more UK customers to HUP and it is pleasing to report that this continues into H2. In the US we are continuing to gain success from a comparatively small sales presence, which demonstrates the potential of the HUP business model. With HUP gathering more momentum, we are focussed on achieving a strong second half performance as the business moves progressively towards profitability, driven by a strong recurring revenue base.”
