Number of Mammography System Deliveries Doubled

September 20, 2010 — Demand increased substantially in the May-July 2010 period for mammography products produced by Sectra. The number of its MicroDose mammography system deliveries more than doubled to 21, up from 10, and contributed to the quarter’s sales growth.

An increase in order bookings of 35.4 percent to SEK 206.0 million (Swedish krona, about $29 million), up from SEK 152.2, was reported by Sectra for its first-quarter operations from May-July 2010. Net sales rose 4.5 percent to SEK 206.7 million. Operating profit totaled SEK 0.2 million, corresponding to an operating margin of 0.1 percent.

“During the quarter, we experienced major successes in Australia with our MicroDose system and our IT system for the processing of breast images. The latest orders make Sectra the largest company for breast imaging systems in the country,” says Jan-Olof Brüer, President and CEO of Sectra AB.

Sectra is upgrading existing customers’ installations to the new generation of Sectra PACS, the company’s principal product in medical IT. The product’s ability to link geographically spread healthcare clinics was of core importance for the new orders Sectra secured during the quarter.
