Increased profitability and and preliminary sales in the second quarter
10 Jul 2020
During the second quarter, Hexatronic’s sales were negatively affected as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and the effect is estimated to be 40 to 50 MSEK. We believe that the negative effects of Covid-19 will decrease in the coming quarters, given the current information. Preliminary sales for the second quarter amounted to approximately 510 MSEK, which corresponds to 5 percent organic growth. EBITA for the second quarter is expected to be between 49 and 54 MSEK. The order backlog at the end of the quarter was 22 percent higher, organically, than at the same time last year. This information is provided due to the prevailing uncertainties caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
