CEO's Statement: Transmode's Profitable Growth Continues
"Sales increased to SEK 270.3 m in the second quarter of the year, up 25.3% on
the corresponding quarter of the previous year. I'm pleased that again in this
quarter, we grew in all three regions.
Overall, the company posted an operating profit of SEK 44.0 m in the quarter,
corresponding to an operating margin of 16.3%. This healthy operating profit was
driven by revenue gains, a gross margin of 49.0% and continued operational
efficiency. The most important contract in the quarter was the five-year frame
agreement we signed with XO Communications of the US for deliveries of WDM
equipment to their nationwide network. Furthermore, Transmode has launched its
Enlighten(TM) management suite, which makes it easier for our customers to
manage and plan their optical networks. We also launched our innovative offering
for network synchronization under the "iSync" banner. To summarize, we are
pleased with a very positive first half-year that demonstrates that our growth
strategy with its focus on geographical expansion, innovative products and
operational efficiency, is successful. Therefore, we are continuing to invest
for profitable growth. "
