  • Sydney — 24 August 2016 — BuildingIQ, Inc. (ASX: BIQ), a leading energy management software company, today released its half year results for the six months ending 30 June 2016.

    The net loss for the current period increased to A$4.57 million (from a A$2.41 million loss in the prior corresponding period), impacted significantly by one-off items relating to acquisition costs and the impairment of accrued income (ASX annoucement 22 August, 2016).
