The growth of revenue was mainly attributed to the increased demand of our established customers. We also proceeded in the new customer acquisition and expect that the introduction of new products will reflect in the revenue as from the end of the year.

We are especially delighted of the good profitability. Thanks to our streamlined operational model we have succeeded in keeping the overhead costs low. When developing our operations we continue to focus on functions, which bring the highest added value to our customers.

The performance of our Indian factory continued strong. Expansion of the premises is in use and a new SMT assembly line will be in place during the second half of the year, enabling further increase of production volumes in the factory.

The business of the factory in Estonia showed a stable performance and the factory has updated its capability to produce medical devices in accordance with the latest ISO 13485/2016 certificate. The capacity and flexibility of the new production line has been increased by supplementary minor investments.

Current problems in the availability of components in electronics manufacturing services business have escalated during the first half of the year. We have prepared for the shortage of components by increasing our inventory moderately and we work closely with our suppliers in order to secure deliveries to our customers as agreed.

All in all, we are happy with the development during the first half of the year and trust that the positive trend will continue during the rest of the year. General outlook in the electronics contract manufacturing is good and we have a firm belief in our competitive edge in this market also in future, based on our efficient operational model."
