Accelerated order growth

STOCKHOLM, May 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- During Elekta's fourth quarter, we drove strong order growth in all regions – both from market growth and market share gain – and we received our 100th Unity order. Installation volumes were similar to levels in the fourth quarter last year, still impacted by reduced access to hospitals, especially in emerging markets due to Covid. When summarizing the full year, we showed good order growth in a pandemic affected market, improved our EBITA on stable volumes and delivered our best annual cash flow ever.

Gustaf Salford

President and CEO
