Report January – March 2019

  • Net Sales in this quarter was MSEK 26 (28) and Operating Loss amounted to MSEK -9 (1).
  • We saw a strong rebound in the Enterprise Forms business as a result of new pricing policy that is now implemented. 
  • Operating Loss was MSEK -9 (1), due primarily to an increase on operating Cost of 8 MSEK from continued software development and costs associated with new product launches. Our 2019 plan includes the set-up of proper sales and marketing networks and continued investment in R&D for CAIT and Livescribe software.            
  • Gross margin in the period was 59% (61%). We continue to maintain good gross margins in both Enterprise Forms and Notetaking businesses. The year on year increase in gross margin is primarily attributed to the decrease in manufacturing costs as well as increase in software and licensing revenue.
