Vlad Suglobov, G5´s CEO, comments: “We do not normally comment on currency exchange rates, but it is a special situation in this quarter. Since the beginning of the year SEK has strengthened against two currencies responsible for approximately 70% of the group’s revenue: USD and JPY. This affected our rate of growth negatively in the first half of the year, but it was still very high in SEK terms because of extremely strong sequential growth. There was further sharp strengthening of SEK against USD and JPY during Q3. At the same time, our sequential growth has slowed down to more normal sustainable levels: 6% in USD terms from Q2 to Q3, according to our internal revenue reports. While healthy, this rate of sequential growth was not enough to compensate for the strengthening of SEK in this particular quarter, and as a result our sequential quarterly numbers show decline, despite the fact that the company continues to grow fundamentally.”
