Lo-Q, an AIM-listed technology solutions provider to the attractions and leisure industry, revealed double digit growth as demand for its systems at entertainment theme parks and water parks soars.

In January Lo-Q confirmed it has been awarded a new three-year contract for queuing systems at Dolly Parton's Splash Country water park, Dollywood.
Chief Executive Tom Burnet said: "The strength of our products and their clear end-market appeal has enabled us to continue to drive sales across all segments, securing not only landmark wins for our newest smartphone based system, but also retaining the trust and confidence of some of our longest-held customers.
"With the transformational acquisition of accesso complete and the technology, operations and sales synergies we expected, are already beginning to prove evident. I have great confidence in the abilities of our expanded team and in our prospects for the months ahead."
In a separate statement, Lo-Q said it has agreed a new banking facility with Lloyds Bank Commercial Bank. The £4.75m debt facility will refinance the £4.0m convertible loan note issued as part of the group's recent acquisition of accesso.
