In a trading update ADB Group says: "The margins and profitability ratios continue to be in line with expectations. The top line growth remains lower compared to previous years, as indicated in the full-year guidance. The Group also enjoys a strong financial position maintained throughout the quarter. The demand from cable and satellite segment remains strong, with the demand from terrestrial segment picking up and IPTV starting to follow. The customer trend of shifting towards high-end product continues. Respectively, the high-definition products contributed a significant majority of the product sales, with PVR set-top boxes forming a clear majority of the products sold. The Group continues in its dominant position as the leader in hybrid technology: most of the product sales today come from either hybrid or hybrid ready set-top boxes."
