CEO Erik Stenfors comments on the report


“Our organic growth increased to 12% in the third quarter. This is a good increase considering the global material challenges. During the quarter, we also saw an increase in order intake in Germany, though this has not yet been reflected in the sales figures.”


“We achieved an operating margin of 6.3% in the third quarter, even though the holiday period has a negative effect on profitability. This means that we see an increase in profitability compared to both the corresponding quarter last year and the second quarter this year.”


“In October, we acquired an electronics company in Germany. The acquisition was made in accordance with our acquisition model with regards to geography, technology, and customer portfolio. HANZA has a continued solid financial situation, which is why we chose to complete the transaction in cash. The acquisition is important for the future and we welcome another 150 colleagues to HANZA.”
