Over the past decade, HMS has grown by an average of over 20 % per year.

The foundation of our business is a large base of Design Wins, which generate recurring business for HMS every year. In addition, HMS has high exposure to trends such as the Industrial Internet of Things and digitalization in general.

The combination of a stable cash flow and favorable trends positions HMS well for continuing profitable growth.
