“In the fourth quarter of 2019, we started showing progress again after we performed a big cost reduction program due to the loss of the large Sky and Space Global order. During the year, we have reduced the staff with more than 100 people and cut the cost with more than 60 million SEK and we have thereby reduced our total cash burn from 184 million SEK in 2018 to 142 million in 2019. In the last quarter of 2019, it was reduced to SEK 23 million.
These activities have influenced the company’s performance by most accounts. The net revenue in 2019 amounted to T.SEK 136,263 compared to T.SEK 153,384 in 2018. This corresponds to a decrease of 11%. The gross margin amounts to 13% compared to 25% in 2018.” CEO Niels Buus commented.
