"In the third quarter, order intake was M.SEK 43, and we maintained our robust and diversified backlog with a value of M.SEK 331. We expect to grow the backlog even further in the remaining part of 2021.
Revenue increased to M.SEK 50 compared to M.SEK 39 last year. We were focusing on ramping up our organization during the quarter, and we have managed to recruit highly skilled engineers. However, ramping up and focusing on efficiencies is a complex task.
Therefore, we prioritize getting a job done right higher than a shortsighted revenue boost. As a result, we did not meet our expectations for specific customers milestones, negatively impacting revenue and cash flow from operating activities.
Therefore, we have lowered our full-year revenue guidance to M.SEK 215 to M.SEK 235 from M.SEK 245 to M.SEK 270 due to the continued challenge in the supply of electronic components and a slower increase than expected in the on-boarding of employees required for converting backlog into revenue." CEO Niels Buus commented.
