Q1 2013 Reaching major milestones
May 24, 2013 - Asetek continued its mission as the leading supplier of liquid cooling solutions for high-end computing by shipping 122,000 patented sealed liquid cooling units in Q1 2013.
Total revenues amounted to USD 4.9 million in the first quarter of 2013, which is in line with Q1 2012. Operating profits from the desktop segment amounted to USD 1.1 million compared to profits of USD 1.2 illion in Q1 2012. The operating losses from the datacenter segment amounted to USD 1.3 million, compared to losses of USD 0.7 million in Q1 2012. The operational losses from the datacenter segment reflect the continued investment in the development of the datacenter product line.
Asetek completed a successful initial public offering of its common shares on the Oslo Stock Exchange in March 2013, raising over $21 million of net proceeds through the issuance of 4 million common shares.
André Eriksen CEO of Asetek says: "We are very pleased with the major milestones passed in the first quarter of 2013. After the successful IPO and listing of Asetek we are now focusing on growth in our two business segments. We made our first invoiced shipments of products for datacenters and the same product was chosen for pilot installation by the University of Tromsø in Norway. These milestones provide reason for continued growth and optimism for 2013 and ahead".
