    CEO's comment
    "It is pleasing to present a positive result for the year and a sales increase of 36 %. A key reason for this is that we further fortified our position on markets where we are already well established, most importantly in Europe. In order to increase the volume of sales in the North American market, in 2008 we will invest in our own organization and sell in parallel to our American distributor. In addition we are evaluating a potential establishment on the Japanese market," says Yvonne Mårtensson, CEO of CellaVision.
    "Another milestone for the company was the initiation of trade at First North, which makes us more visible on the financial market. All of this combined makes me hopeful of CellaVision's development during 2008 and the coming years."
