INVISIO Interim Report January - September 2021: Good order intake of smaller orders - but continued delay in larger ones

CEO comment
“During the quarter we have seen a continued good intake of smaller orders, but in terms of larger orders we are still seeing a pandemic-related delay. This is mainly due to customers’ purchasing processes taking longer than before, difficulties in implementing tests and temporary changes in budget priorities among some customers. However, our assessment is that INVISIO has not lost any orders or procurements. To date during the pandemic, we have not been affected by delivery problems or component shortages, but we are now seeing slightly longer lead times. This may affect our normally fast customer deliveries in the fourth quarter and the beginning of 2022. All in all, however, conditions for strong and sustainable growth continue to be very good,” says Lars Højgård Hansen, CEO of INVISIO.
