Expectations for revenue full year 2020 and guidance for 2021

Company Announcement No. 19-2020
Copenhagen, December 9, 2020

As a result of the covid-19 pandemic, schools and educational institutions in some of the Company’s main markets continue to be closed, and/or students are being taught outside the physical classroom. This situation continues to impact the Company’s international sales also in Q4, which under normal circumstances are the best-selling quarter.

The Company therefore adjusts the expectations for the revenue in 2020. The Company expects the revenue for the full year 2020 to be MDKK 6.0 - 7.0, instead of the previously announced revenue level for 2020 of MDKK 7.5 - 8.5.

These special circumstances are considered to be temporary, and the sale of robots for use in classrooms, expect to return as schools begins a more normal operation.

Guidance for 2021
The Company anticipate the market situation in 2021 to gradually return to normal. Combined with order indications from the Company’s resellers, the Company expects the full year revenue 2021 to be in the range of MDKK 14.0 – 17.0.

The Company maintains the long-term financial targets

  • Average revenue growth rate of more than 80% per annum between 2021 to 2023
  • Target Revenue of MDKK 55 in 2023 
  • Cash Flow positive for the full year 2023
