CEO Carsten Drachmann comments: “During Q3, our primary emphasis remained on the continuous execution of our turnaround and transformation plan. We successfully accomplished three pivotal objectives for the quarter, namely the implementation of our new organizational structure, enhancement of free cashflow, and improvement in product sales. The organizational goals are well-defined, and we are effectively integrating into our business units, witnessing the new operational mode take effect.
In terms of achieving positive cashflow, we are progressing well towards our target of reaching free cashflow positivity by the second half of 2024. Notably, the free cashflow for Q3 2023 amounted to a negative MSEK 6.3, a significant improvement compared to Q2 2023's negative MSEK 27.8 and Q1 2023's negative MSEK 42.2. This accomplishment aligns well with our strategic plans.
Further worth highlighting is the revenue for the initial three quarters of 2023, which stands at 196 MSEK, parallel to the full-year revenue of 198 MSEK in 2022. We anticipate surpassing the highest revenue recorded in 2021, which was 214 MSEK, by the end of this year.” CEO Carsten Drachmann commented.
