Comments from the CEO
"The previously communicated market uncertainty persists. On our major markets we see continuing positive signs on the American market. The German market is somewhat reserved and the Japanese market is still uncertain. We see a continuing inflow of design-wins confirming our strong position on the market and the attractiveness of our product offering. However, the effect of these new customers will not materialize (on the income statement) until 2013 and going forward. The demand for customized solutions of the HMS technology is still high and during the first quarter, we received the biggest order in the company´s history, amounting to SEK 16 m. The conditions for a continuing long-term growth are unchanged despite the short term uncertainty among our customers."
