Lund, July 6, 2016
Revised outlook for 2016
According to preliminary results, Doro’s profits for the first half of 2016 will be lower than expected and therefore the Company revises its full year outlook. CEO of Doro Care Ulf Lindsten is leaving the Company.
While the earlier outlook stated that 2016 sales and profit for the group are expected to increase, the Company now expects profit for the group to be somewhat below 2015 while sales can still be expected to be higher than previous year.
Sales in Sweden in Doro Care continue to be held back due to an appeal of a new framework agreement with the procurement office of the Swedish municipalities (SKL). This issue of temporary nature has not yet been solved in the second quarter, and there is, as in the first quarter, a significant negative impact on EBIT of the group. Doro Care’s operations have been expanded on the basis of continued growth resulting in profitability below forecasts for Doro Care. The company has agreed with Ulf Lindsten, the CEO of Doro Care, that he will leave the company during the third quarter.
