” Financially, RayStation® started to contribute significant revenues in conjunction with its installation at several customers at the end of the year. From a revenue viewpoint, the fourth quarter was the best ever with SEK 45.8 M in revenues compared with SEK 34.8 M in the fourth quarter 2010”, says Johan Löf, President of RaySearch.
” In 2011, we successfully implemented a strategic shift in which we went from complete dependence on partners to establishing opportunities to sell directly to clinics in parallel with our partner-based business model. We have noted strong interest for RayStation® and a large number of business discussions are ongoing in North America, Europe and Asia so we hope to finalize several important deals in 2012, ”, concludes Johan Löf.
