INVISIO Interim Report January–March 2019: Weak quarter followed by large order after the period close

CEO comment
“INVISIO’s first quarter was weak in terms of sales, but after the period close, we received a significant order worth SEK 111 million from a new customer in the American Department of Defense. We estimate that there are good prospects of further orders from the customer in coming years. The order was received through our recently awarded GSA contract. It was hoped that the order would be received earlier, but since this was our first order via the GSA system the process took a little longer. The greater part of the delivery is expected to be made in the second quarter, as we have already built up an inventory for the order”, says Lars Højgård Hansen, CEO of INVISIO.
