INVISIO Interim Report January–September 2018: Expected orders behind inventory build-up

Stockholm, October 26, 2018

CEO comment
”In many parts of the world we see continued investment in communication and safety, as well as increasing defense budgets, and we expect continuous strengthening of our position as a leading supplier. In the past quarter we have had a weaker order intake due to procurements at irregular intervals and the long lead times in the industry. The increase in inventories was to enable rapid delivery on orders we have good reason to expect”, says Lars Højgård Hansen, CEO of INVISIO.
