Elekta: Interim report, May-October 2021/22


(MENAFN- PR Newswire) STOCKHOLM, Nov. 25, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The increasing need for investments in cancer care and radiotherapy across the globe supported a gradual market recovery during the quarter. Our orders grew with double digits, and despite the continued global supply chain challenges we secured good revenue growth supported by a strong finish of the quarter. Our margins improved sequentially but were still impacted by higher logistics costs.
