CEO’s comments

A strong quarter of robust organic growth and improved margins

Q3 was characterized by strong organic growth and improved margins. Organic net revenue growth amounted to 27.2 %. This growth was primarily driven by increased demand from our customers, a reduction in supply chain disruptions, and a favorable currency trend. Orders received remained strong, increasing organically by 20.6 % during the quarter.

Adjusted EBITDA improved compared with Q3 2021, amounting to SEK 36.0 million (14.5). We have systematically worked on improving our margins and, despite a challenging environment characterized by inflation and price increases, we have been able to strengthen our EBITDA margin by passing on increased costs to our customers. Currency tailwinds and acquisitions have also contributed to the stronger margins. The Group’s adjusted EBITDA margin increased to 15.2 % (13.7) during the quarter.

Our underlying markets are continuing to show strength. Activity in our Healthcare business unit remains high, and the equipment used in day-to-day care see high consumption, especially in the U.S. market, which now accounts for more than 50 % of our business and revenue. With regard to hospital equipment that requires investment decisions, we may see a certain amount of caution at the moment. However, capital goods for hospitals in the United States actually represent less than 5 % of the Group’s total revenue.

Investment in research facilities and related equipment remains at a good level. Many projects that did slow down during the pandemic are now being completed, and this is also driving the sale of instruments and consumables used in research. We are seeing a sharp increase in clean room projects in the Middle East as these investments are often linked to the USD and the oil price. We are currently completing a large clean room project in Egypt that will be used in the production of mRNA vaccines.

The Group’s order book is now at historically high levels. This situation, combined with healthy organic growth in orders received, means that we have good visibility with the expectation of further strong quarters.

We are continuing to work actively to identify complementary acquisitions. The selection of companies that fit into one of our two business units is good at present. Yet we can also see that there was a slight multiple contraction in private M&A deals during Q3, not least in Sweden. Our priority growth markets are the Nordic region, the United States, and the United Kingdom. These are markets with a strong focus on high-quality research and healthcare, and which also have different but well-functioning healthcare systems. The Group’s net interest-bearing liabilities are now below our long-term target of 3.0 times pro forma EBITDA. At the end of Q3 it was 2.8 times pro forma EBITDA. This means that our ability to continue making complementary acquisitions remains.
