1H FY2020 was a transformational period for SciDev. Not only did SciDev enter into agreements to acquire two complementary businesses during and shortly after this period, SciDev also demonstrated revenue growth which was up 382% PCP. As SciDev focuses on the opportunities they have in their pipeline across the base metal, oil, gas, waste-water, civil & construction sectors, SciDev is well-positioned to continue growing revenues and move into cash flow positive territory.
