Comment from the CEO
A strong finish to the record year 2021
The strong market demand from previous quarters continued in the fourth quarter. Furthermore, we had a temporary improvement during the quarter in the availability of semiconductor components that increased our delivery capacity. In total, this resulted in a new quarterly record with an order intake of SEK 699 million, and sales of SEK 571 million, which corresponds to an increase of 71% in order intake and 41% in sales compared to the same quarter last year. Operating profit ends up at SEK 109 million, which is an increase of 46%.

We can thus close a fantastic 2021 with impressive annual figures. An order intake of SEK 2,538 million, corresponding to a growth of 75% and a record turnover of SEK 1,972 million, an increase of 34% of which 26% is organic growth. Our operating profit reaches a new record level of SEK 446 million, which corresponds to a growth of 55% compared to the previous year. Notable is also our strong cash flow during the year, which amounts to SEK 508 million, an increase of 38% compared to the previous year.
