Looking at the twelve months ahead, Amino expressed a positive outlook, with expectation of continued revenue growth as well as further profit growth.

"Amino's markets are evolving rapidly as the way entertainment is consumed re-shapes operator strategies," remarked chief executive officer Donald McGarva. "Operator demand for simple, reliable IPTV devices remains consistently strong, particularly in emerging markets. Increasingly, however, operators are looking for higher performance devices that can blend traditional IPTV with OTT content delivered over the open Internet. In addition, there is growing demand for new kinds of connected home platforms - where a single device delivers a range of content to multiple screens around the home alongside simple home management capability. In the longer term, operators are now clarifying their service delivery roadmaps to ensure they are positioned to provide 4K/Ultra HD services."
