CEO Carsten Drachmann comments: “2023 marks a year of transformation, re-aligning the organization and business, and effectively overcoming the challenges faced in 2022. Throughout the year, our primary emphasis has been on cash and profitability. I'm thrilled to observe that, for the first time in several years, our free cash flow in Q4 reflects a positive figure of MSEK 21, and we reached MSEK 103 in order intake, the highest since Q4 2021. Furthermore, we achieved a solid year-end cash balance of MSEK 61, an increase from the mid-year balance of MSEK 55.

Although we experienced a very satisfying increase in revenue, reaching a record MSEK 235, compared to the MSEK 214 in 2021, it is evident that our EBIT and profitability still requires attention. We have outlined three key focus areas for our 2024 operation, which I firmly believe will lead us in the right direction: 1) Grow product sales, 2) Capture market in North America, 3) Focus on profitable projects in our program and mission business. Effective execution of each focus area will enhance overall profitability. While striving for an improved EBIT, our primary emphasis in 2024 remains on cash, aiming for a stable positive free cash flow by the second half of the year.”
