Cosol said within that context, the purchase was complementary and aligned with its geographic expansion ambitions.
“The enhanced capability and track record which AddOns brings establishes a strong basis to aggressively undertake larger and more complex engagements, previously the domain of the software vendors such as ABB, in our own right,” chairman Geoff Lewis said.

Shares in Sensera tumbled in February and March off the back of the loss or deferral of several orders.
This morning’s announcement was accompanied by news its MD business witnessed a 41 per cent revenue spike last financial year and the company expected further growth this year.
Sensera shares climbed 17 per cent today.
Yesterday, while half of Australia enjoyed a public holiday, financial software company Intiger announced the reverse takeover of Sydney-based regtech Complii.

The deal will see Intiger change its name to Complii and raise $5-7m.
