“The result after a growth in revenue of 59 percent and a gross profit at 47 percent, is slightly under our growth targets. The revenue and gross profit has been adjusted due to changes in revenue recognition and due to elimination of partial revenue and profit from Aerial & Maritime Ltd. The underlying performance, without adjustments, are however better than our growth plan. The revenue growth would be 82 percent with a gross profit of 53 percent. The operating profit is SEK -14.5 million and the profit for the year is equal to SEK 9 million. The extraordinary positive result is due to a non-cash financial income at SEK 21,4 million, from the establishment of Aerial & Maritime Ltd. Based on this we conclude, that we are following our growth plan,” CEO Niels Buus commented.
