Interim report, May–January 2022/23
Growth and improved margins
Demand for radiotherapy continued to improve in the quarter and supported our order growth. We managed the supply chain challenges well and strong installation volumes at the end of the quarter increased revenue. The Cost-reduction Initiative is progressing according to plan, supporting profitable growth going forward.
