Year-end report May-April 2019/20

Performing in a difficult time

In summarizing the full year we had a modest growth due to challenges linked to Covid-19 in our most important fourth quarter.

I am very proud of how Elekta has handled the pandemic effects, in particular supporting our customers, strengthening our solution portfolio and delivering profit. We are in a good position for the future based on our innovative solutions and a strong backlog enhanced by a record order after the year closed. With this order we exceeded our Unity order target while increasing our U.S. market position.

President and CEO
