Interim report, May–July 2021/22

Market recovery with short-term cost challenges

The market continued to recover with stronger demand and better access to customers particularly in more mature markets. Orders grew by double digits, when excluding Elekta’s largest order ever in the first quarter last year. Installation volumes increased and revenue grew in line with pre-pandemic levels. We are experiencing temporary headwinds to our gross margin due to increased supply-chain, logistics and service costs.

Gustaf Salford
President and CEO

First quarter

  • Gross order intake amounted to SEK 3,980 M (4,451), corresponding to a 4 percent decrease in constant currency. When excluding last year’s effect of Elekta’s largest order ever, order intake had a growth of 17 percent
  • Net sales were SEK 3,009 M (2,981), corresponding to an 8 percent growth in constant currency
  • Gross margin amounted to 37.1 percent (45.9), mainly due to higher supply-chain and logistics costs
  • EBIT amounted to SEK 201 M (335), corresponding to an EBIT margin of 6.7 percent (11.2)
  • Earnings per share was SEK 0.33 (0.57) before/after dilution
  • Cash flow after continuous investments decreased by SEK 371 M to SEK -343 M (26), mainly related to lower earnings, increased R&D investments and increased working capital
  • At today’s AGM the Board of Directors proposes a dividend of SEK 2.20 (1.80) per share (paid in two instalments) for the fiscal year 2020/21. This corresponds to 67 percent (63) of the net profit for the fiscal year 2020/21
