CEO's comments: Demand greater than ever CellaVision AB - Interim report for the period January 1 - Sep 30, 2010
Demand for our products is greater than ever. Consequently our great challenge now is to adapt production and organization to the strong growth in demand. In the third quarter we have had a shortage of a small number of components and production disruptions for our DM1200 analyzer. Ongoing measures are intended to prevent sales being affected.
Now as we pass the year's three-quarter mark we can report a sales increase of 29 % to SEK 90 million, which exceeds our long-term growth target of 15 % over an economic cycle. Our American distributors' initiatives in the US are now apparent in the sales figures and in the third quarter the North American share of sales was as much as 51 %. We are also now starting to see good sales results from our distributors in Asia, mainly in Japan and China.
CellaVision is growing with profitability but fluctuations in the dollar impacted our earnings in the quarter. At the same time as we see strong upturn in sales, the general economic recovery in the US is still weak and the dollar has fallen sharply in value during the period. The growing demand for our products has also meant that since last spring we have invested in our own organization with six new employees in product and technology development.
