Per-Johan Dahlgren, President & CEO, comments on the first half period of 2023:
Novedo shows strong growth and solid development in the first half of 2023. Net sales and EBITA over the rolling 12 months increased to SEK 2,370.9 million and SEK 246.4 million, respectively. We continue to see good growth opportunities and we have several attractive acquisitions under evaluation. The Novedo companies' strong and established market positions, service and product offerings, and diversified customer base have shown good resilience in the uncertain economic situation that has characterized recent years. This, combined with good existing demand and favorable structural trends in, for example, electrification, energy optimization, sustainable infrastructure investments, and European component and system manufacturing, constitutes a solid platform for continued positive development.
