Comments from the CEO
"Net sales for the first six months represent record levels for HMS. Still we realize that the recent quarters shows the sales growth levelling out. The German market is still stable and the American market shows a positive development. For the Japanese market progress is more irregular. The market situation is reserved and uncertain. This can primarily be noticed as a weak development among existing customers. We still see good progress with new customers and the order intake during the period indicates future growth. Net sales for the last twelve months are also on a record level with SEK 390 m in revenues. As a result of a more conscious cost control during the recent six month period we can also present a 18% operating margin."
