Press release – Linköping, September 3, 2021 – International medical imaging IT and cybersecurity company Sectra (https://investor.sectra.com/) (STO: SECT B) has significant variations in financial outcomes between periods and its earnings have traditionally been low during the first quarter of the year. This year, some deliveries, primarily in the US, were carried out earlier than planned and operating profit subsequently increased to SEK 90.1 million, which is high for a first quarter. This strong start to the year is not expected to affect the company’s outcome for the fiscal year as a whole. In the long term, the ongoing transition to new business models with cloud services and per-use payments could gradually reduce the variations between quarters.

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.
