Increased sales and a higher gross margin
Net sales for third quarter 2015 increased by 20.7 percent to SEK 88.8 (73.6) million. Adjusted for exchange rate fluctuations, principally in respect of USD, sales increased by 4.2 percent compared to the same quarter in 2014. For the period January-September, net sales increased by 12.2 percent to SEK 243.0 (216.6) million. Adjusted for exchange rate fluctuations, this represents a decrease in sales of 1.8 percent.
Gross margin for third quarter 2015 amounted to 46.6 percent (44.2). Compared to the previous year, this increase can be mainly ascribed to increased sales of consumables and a stronger USD.
Consumables, reagents and blood controls continued to increase their proportion of sales during the third quarter. In total, they represented 57 percent of our net sales during the quarter, compared to 55 percent for the same period in 2014. This upward trend has contributed to a more stable net sales and higher gross margins.
