Getinge publish Interim Report January - September 2017

October 18, 2017. Gothenburg, Sweden.

Getinge publish Interim Report January - September 2017

”We can report a positive trend in the order intake for the third quarter, although I am not satisfied with earnings, which were put under pressure by both lower net sales and higher operating expenses.  Net sales were adversely impacted by the lower order intake in the second quarter and higher expenses partly related to the work on preparing the proposed distribution of the Patient & Post-Acute Care business area. We are also continuing to invest in product development, sales and quality, as we have previously announced”, says Mattias Perjos, President & CEO.
