Sectra’s nine-month interim report 2020/2021: Increased order bookings and the industry’s most satisfied customers for the eighth consecutive year

Press release – Linköping, March 12, 2021 – International medical imaging IT and cybersecurity company Sectra (https://investor.sectra.com/) (STO: SECT B) has received a top ranking in customer satisfaction surveys in the category of diagnostic imaging systems for radiology in the US, Canada and Europe as well as in the category of digital pathology. As a result of having the market’s most satisfied customers for many years, demand for the company’s offerings is high and order bookings increased 79% compared with the year-earlier period. The third quarter of the preceding fiscal year was extremely strong and the results for this year did not quite reach the same level. The results were hampered by limited delivery opportunities in certain areas of the operations due to the COVID-19 pandemic and by a stronger SEK. Based on unadjusted exchange rates, sales for the nine-month period were on par with the year-earlier period. With tight restrictions still in place in several countries, the heightened risk of delivery delays is expected to continue in the coming quarter. However, Sectra is relatively well equipped to manage the pandemic based on a strong financial position, positive cash flows and a significant share of recurring revenue.
