STOCKHOLM, May 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- GomSpace Group AB announces its interim report for the first quarter of 2017. The report is available on the company's homepage (www.gomspace.com). The following is taken from the quarterly report:
First quarter summary
1 January - 31 March 2017 (2016)
- Net revenues increased to T.SEK 18,997 (11,003)
- Gross margin decreased to 46% (64%)
- Operating profit (loss) decreased to a negative T.SEK 10,257 (a positive 929)
- Earnings per share were a negative SEK 0.42 (a positive 0.69)
- GomSpace selected for the delivery of a constellation of satellites to Sky and Space Global (UK) Ltd
- GomSpace makes a private placement at SEK 95 million through issuance of 1.75 million new shares.
"The result for the period was a loss of T.SEK 10,272, in line with our expectation, and the growth in revenue was 73% which is also in line with our target. Gross margin was 46% which is slightly under our target. Without the partial elimination of revenue from Aerial & Maritime Ltd. the growth in revenue would be 89% and gross margin 49%. We are now in a phase where we, at a substantial level, invest in assets as well as in operations. The financials are very much influenced by this. The basic conditions are however solid, because our orderbook is very strong and it has in fact never been stronger in our history. At the same time, the future demand also looks promising," CEO Niels Buus commented.
