INVISIO Interim report January-September 2022: Increased growth and a strong order intake

CEO comment
“Third quarter performance was strong. The order intake increased more than 75 per cent compared with the corresponding quarter in the previous year. The rolling twelve months order intake (RTM) for the first time exceeded one billion kronor, resulting in a record-high order book. Sales grew by more than 35 per cent despite delivery capacity being impeded by component delays. However, the situation is gradually improving. As a result of the order book level and the current market situation, in our opinion sales will be strong in the year’s last quarter and into the beginning of 2023. It’s now time to start harvesting of our recent years’ investments in the product portfolio and sales organization.”
