Growth in the fourth quarter, but market uncertainty continues
“Net Insight achieved growth again in the fourth quarter and revenue increased by 2.2% year-on-year, despite negative exchange rate effects from a stronger SEK against the USD and EUR in the quarter. Adjusted for exchange rate effects, growth was 8.4% compared to the fourth quarter 2019. Net income in the quarter was negative as a result of the substantial negative exchange rate effect. Market conditions remain challenging due to the protracted pandemic. We have introduced a large number of improvements and are starting to see the positive effects on product development, sales and internal efficiency.”
Crister Fritzson, CEO of Net Insight
