Innofactor Plc Stock Exchange Release January 25, 2019, at 08:30 Finnish time
In the stock exchange release published on October 8, 2018, Innofactor stated that its net sales in 2018 are estimated to remain on approximately the same level as in 2017, when the net sales were EUR 65.7 million, and the operating margin (EBITDA) is estimated to be positive, but weaker than in 2017, when the operating margin was EUR 1.3 million.
Customers' purchase habits in Finland on the last quarter of the year differed significantly from estimate and previous years, as regards the Dynasty product family updates, as customers decided to wait for the turn of the year and a new version of the product family. Also, the net sales in Denmark on the fourth quarter were significantly lower than estimated. Additionally, need for write offs related to project deliveries, among other things, have appeared. Due to these reasons, Innofactor lowers its estimate on the net sales and operating margin (EBITDA) for 2018.
Innofactor's net sales in 2018 are estimated to remain smaller than in the previous year, 2017, during which the net sales were EUR 65.7 million, and the operating margin (EBITDA) is estimated to be negative for the entire year.
