Focus on execution

The third quarter was characterised by an intense focus on delivering results according to plan, with excellent operational execution. OXE managed to increase sales and improve gross profit compared to second quarter 2021, plus generate highest sales in a quarter for Parts & Accessories.

During the quarter net sales increased 20% compared to second quarter of 2021, with continued improvement of gross profit and gross margin of 28%. Sales growth in the quarter was driven by the stronger supply of the OXE300 in combination with record sales of Parts & Accessories, indicating a continued increase of operative OXE engines.

Order intake amounted to SEK 11m during the quarter and the Order Book amounted to SEK 113m at the end of the quarter. We saw a healthy increase in end-user demand to distributors, in particular, a significant project in the Philippines where the Bureau of Customs will be supplied with 62 pcs of OXE150 in a series of three batches.

A directed share issue of SEK 22.8m was carried out during the quarter in order to support an escalated ramp up of capacity at suppliers. The share issue was subscribed for by a smaller group of the largest existing shareholders without discount to the prevailing market price, demonstrating the confidence and support we continue to receive from our main shareholder base.

The quarter was challenging from a component availability perspective, but through strong operational execution, we were able to accelerate output of the OXE300, despite fewer production days in the third quarter vs the second quarter of 2021.

To safeguard quality, each engine produced has been brought to OXE in Sweden for additional validation at sea before shipment to customer. While this has been an important step in ensuring quality, from an operational point of view, this has also been a bottleneck towards ramping up production.

During the fourth quarter we are pleased to announce that we have commenced direct shipments to customers. This step will enable further ramp up of production in the fourth quarter as well as indicating that we have reached a stable production setup with quality control, assembly, testing and packing fully transferred to our Polish partner. The relation with our Polish assembly partner was further deepened by assigning them to also take over selected procurement and holding of component inventory for the OXE300.

At our assembly partner in the US, we have seen good progress and strengthened collaboration. We have maintained a limited but quality-focused output to meet short term demand while we plan for further ramp up.

We have invested significantly in our supply chain footprint over the past 6 months, both in modular assembly as well as in hard tooling. In addition, we have signed up two key roles during the quarter. As of October 1st, Paul Kroksmark will join as Supply Network Director as well as a new quality manager joining OXE during the fourth quarter.
