ELEKTA RECEIVES ORDERS FOR LEKSELL GAMMA KNIFE VALUED AT SEK 123 MILLION

Elekta has during the third quarter this fiscal year signed agreements to deliver Leksell Gamma Knife? equipment to the U.S., Europe, Asia and Japan. The agreements include delivery of Leksell Gamma Knife equipment and upgrade of existing installations. The total order value is approximately SEK 123 M. The deliveries are planned for fiscal year 2003/04.

"We are very pleased with the continued interest from new markets for Leksell Gamma Knife", says Tomas Puusepp, responsible for Elekta's global sales, marketing and service.

"Elekta's total order bookings so far during this fiscal year are satisfactory. Order values in Swedish krona (SEK) are affected though mainly by the weakening of the US dollar against the SEK. The order bookings in local currencies are well in line with our growth target of 10-15 percent per year," ends Tomas Puusepp.
