    Interim Report January 1 – March 31, 2018

    RaySearch Laboratories AB (publ)

    “During the first quarter 2018, net sales decreased 8 percent to SEK 116 M (127) and operating margin declined to 12 percent (26), primarily due to changes in accounting policies. With unchanged accounting policies, net sales would have been the same as the corresponding quarter of 2017, i.e., SEK 127 M, and the operating margin 19 percent. Cash flow before financing activities improved to SEK 13 M (8). We are secure in our long-term strategy and our expansion is continuing,” says Johan Löf, CEO of RaySearch.
