INVISIO Interim Report January–September 2020: Strong order intake and continued investments

CEO comment
”The third quarter of 2020 was characterized by a strong order intake and stable sales growth. The forward-looking investments continued for product development and organizational development in R&D, sales and marketing. We can note that the order intake of smaller orders that do not give rise to public disclosure fortunately continues to increase, which is a logical consequence of a growing customer base and new product areas. At the same time, we have seen that several major customer projects have been somewhat delayed due to the ongoing pandemic. INVISIO does not believe that the company has lost business due to the pandemic, but rather it is a matter of delayed inflow of orders,” says Lars Højgård Hansen, CEO of INVISIO.
