CellaVision revises outlook for the full year: Sales growth in 2013
CellaVision announces that sales for the fourth quarter of 2013 has increased
significantly in comparison with the corresponding quarter in 2012. This means
that the company shows sales growth for the full year 2013, in contrast to what
was communicated in the company's half-year report 2013.
The preliminary figures for the year 2013 show that CellaVision's revenue will
increase by 5-7 per cent in comparison with 2012. Sales in the fourth quarter of
2013 will increase by 28-30 per cent in comparison to last year. The strong
sales growth combined with cost control generate improved profitability.
In the second half of 2013 CellaVision saw a rise in the US and European markets
but have not yet seen a confident trend improvement. The sales increase is
partly explained by customers placing first quarter orders earlier than
expected. CellaVision's inflow of orders is unevenly distributed over the year,
depending on the distributors' sales and inventory levels. Traditionally, sales
in the fourth quarter is strong.
As previously announced, CellaVision will publish its Year-end bulletin 2013 on
February 13, 2014 with complete figures on financial development.
