Investment summary

SLI’s results reflect the business’s transitional status. Substantial savings were made to sales and marketing expenditure, which underpinned the company’s first year of profitability. We continue to forecast margin compression in the near term as the business begins its transition to an indirect sales model. Successful implementation of this shift remains the critical determinant of the business’s prospects.
