Profit warning from PEN Concept Group

PEN Concept Group AB, that reported a negative EBIT of 6,7 MSEK during first half year 2017, is unlikely to generate a positive operative result for the full year as planned. It is probable that the full year EBIT will be in line what has been reported during the first half year. Actions are in place to strengthen sales work but also to lower running costs.

Johan Burtus, CEO at PEN Concept Group, explains:
“We took actions from our first half year result by reviewing our cost efficiency while strengthening sales capacity. This process takes however longer time than first anticipated. On the positive side is that the demand of our products and services remains high and we estimate to resume profitability during 2018.”
