Swift Media revenues bounce back 23.4% in first quarter of FY21

Specialist tech company Swift Media has reported a revenue increase for the first quarter of the 2021 financial year of 24.3% compared to Q4 of FY 2020.

The revenue rise follows an increase in demand for closed loop, communications and entertainment systems in Australian communities that are either isolated or locked down amid COVID-19.

Swift noted that the latest financial results coincide with the one-year anniversary of CEO Pippa Leary joining the company to work with chair Darren Smorgon on transforming a business that had lost its focus.
