CEO and President Anders Karlsson’s commentary on the first quarter 2015:
“We continued to see an increase in sales and profitability in the company during the first quarter of the year. The upswing in margins that we saw last year continued, with earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) for the period amounting to SEK 5.8 million (17 percent). The increase in net sales for the period came mainly from the U.S., where we invested considerable resources in 2014 to build up a strong market platform. Sales and earnings also benefits from the weaker Swedish krona. The time schedule for the launch of real time PCR, a new platform for HLA typing advance according to plan and the first sales are expected during the second half of the year.”
