Net Insight Interim Report January – March 2021

Growth on a continued cautious market

“Net Insight posted continued growth in the first quarter 2021 and revenue up by 2.6% despite negative exchange rate effects. Adjusted for exchange rate effects, year-on-year growth was 11.6%. The divestment of ScheduALL, which was announced in the quarter, is an important step towards focusing the operations and achieving profitable growth. It is also encouraging that our sharper focus and accelerated R&D investments are yielding results and that we won important deals in the quarter.”

Crister Fritzson, CEO of Net Insight

Significant events:

  • Divestment of ScheduALL
  • Promising results in innovation study of Net Insight’s time synchronization technology in mobile networks
  • Important deals with Red Bee Media and NEP Connect
