Interim Report January - June 2015

Comments by CEO Johan Hjertonsson:

  • A very good order intake of MSEK 1,091 (969) in the second quarter, an increase by 13 %, which makes this quarter the best yet for the Group.
  • Our strong offering to the healthcare sector is yielding fruit, as shown by our strong order intake from large hospitals in Australia, the UK and other countries.
  • The order backlog at the end of the first half of the year was MSEK 160 higher than at the same date in 2014.
  • A stable quarter in which we achieved sales and earnings at the same high level as in the second quarter of 2014.
  • Through the agreement to acquire the assets of Lighting Innovations in South Africa we are establishing a presence in the dynamic Sub-Saharan Africa region, which has great growth potential. We expect to finalise the acquisition in the second half of the year.
  • The LED lighting share of net sales continues to expand.
  • Market growth over the period remained brisk in the UK and was stable in Scandinavia but lower in parts of the eurozone.
