Comment from the CEO

The trend continues - order intake at new record levels
We continue to see a strong demand in our markets driven by increasing investments in automation, digitalization, energy efficiency and remote monitoring of industrial machinery. Order intake reaches a new record level and amounts to SEK 669 million, corresponding to a growth of 99% compared to the previous year, 80% of this growth is organic. For the first nine months, the corresponding figures are 77% and 66% respectively. As in previous quarters during the year, order intake is boosted by the fact that customers place orders for delivery longer time ahead than usual. This is due to longer lead times related to component shortage. We estimate this temporary positive effect in the order intake to amount to approximately SEK 140 million during the quarter.
