CEO’s comment to the Interim Report “After a protracted period of fading volumes we were able to conclude that our market initiatives were beginning to pay off last autumn. Sales increased by just over 6% in the final quarter of last year and growth continued in the first quarter by just over 8%, to SEK 232.8 million. The growth during first quarter was due to a combination of extended assignments for existing customers and increased volumes starting to feed through in more recent customer collaborations.
Mainly as a result of increased sales, operating profit improved by SEK 5.5 million to SEK 5.8 (0.3) million. Also cash flow after investments developed positively and was SEK 23.1 (-8.0) million.
Our order book currently supports positive volume growth compared to the previous year”, says Peter Laveson, CEO and President.
