AFTER THE END OF THE PERIOD
Record order for RayStation® from Austrian particle therapy center received in October
“The sharply increasing sales of RayStation® combined with continued strong sales of partner products led to a 31.0 percent revenue increase during the January to September period. However, earnings for the period were negative, due to higher costs for sales and marketing of RayStation® and high legal fees in the US,” says Johan Löf, President of RaySearch.
“During the first half of the year, we secured several key orders for RayStation® in North America, Europe and Asia and the positive trend continued after the end of the six-month period. Another major success was the order we received in October from the Austrian particle therapy center MedAustron for carbon ion treatment planning. The order is our largest to date and further strengthens our position in the particle therapy field,” concludes Johan Löf.
