The first quarter

The Group continues to make good progress in recovering from the challenging pandemic conditions, demonstrated by an improved EBIT result. Improved digital processes and tools facilitate alternative ways of working for the Group, it's customers and suppliers.

Overall, the comparable quarter on quarter order intake levels continue to improve, although the levels vary depending on the pandemic conditions and lockdown situations in the different countries.

Order intake for the quarter at 1,854 (2,146) MSEK was -7.4% organically adverse. The quarter continues the steady improvement since the second quarter of last year and is the highest level since the start of Covid.

The order backlog has increased 200 MSEK since the start of the year and at the end of Q1 was 1,472 (1,568) MSEK.

Net sales at 1,678 (1,689) MSEK resulted in +6.6% organic growth. Currency headwinds at 97 MSEK remain significant. Last year we started to see the Covid effects on net sales only at the end of the quarter.

The operating profit of 152.9 (10.7) MSEK delivers an operating margin of 9.1 (0.6)%. In the period there was 5.1 (0) MSEK of government subsidy income and a reduction in selling and administration expenses of 106.9 MSEK compared to Q1 last year.

Operating cash flow was positive at 58.6 (87.9) MSEK for the quarter. Working capital increased 117.1 (26.3) MSEK in line with the quarter on quarter growth, mainly in accounts receivable and inventory. Taxes paid increased 49.1 MSEK and financial items were 22.2 (27.3) MSEK including 5.8 (7.5) MSEK for IFRS16.

Interim Report Q1

January - March 2021

CEO comments

  • The first quarter of 2021 was improved in many areas and we are satisfied with the steady progress and ongoing recovery from the effects of the pandemic.
  • The quarterly operating margin at 9,1% is at a good level with the current market conditions.
  • Whilst Covid persists and we still have a lot of extra measures in place, the new ways of working are effective, and the steady improvement is visible. As a result, we have currently decided to not provide detailed separate Covid updates. If the situation changes, we will of course review this.
  • As a fundamental part of our connectivity and sustainability strategy, the acquisition of the balance 80% of the shares in Seneco is a significant step. From a sustainability perspective, the Seneco technology has a significant impact on reducing energy consumption in outdoor lighting.
  • The Group now has connected solutions for both indoor and outdoor lighting where market demands continue to grow.
  • The main focus for this quarter's strategy work is continued internal work with our Group core values and our sustainability strategy gathers pace. We are working on the Group materiality analysis with many stakeholder interviews as part of the process.

"We see signs of recovery from the Covid challenges and are cautiously optimistic about the future."

Bodil Sonesson, CEO and President
