“During the first six months of the year the revenues increased by 16 percent to SEK 75 M despite a weak second quarter. RaySearch experiences large fluctuations between the various quarters due to a combination of fluctuations in partner sales and in deliveries of RayStation®. The second quarter is also traditionally a slow quarter for the whole radiation therapy industry”, says Johan Löf, President of RaySearch.
“Several strategic milestones have been reached in 2013 and RayStation® is evolving at a fast pace. Interest in the system is rising continuously but it is difficult to predict how rapidly the interest will translate into orders and deliveries. With new partners and a growing sales organization in existing and new markets, we are looking forward to the rest of 2013 with confidence”, concludes Johan Löf.
