“During the third quarter, growth was recorded at 6.4 percent, of which 1.8 percent was organic. Despite subdued demand in parts of Europe and record-high winter temperatures, which detracted from sales of heating products, our gross margin continued to improve from that of the preceding year. In addition, operating profit improved to SEK 113 million, or by 5.2 percent, as against SEK 80 million or 4.0 percent in the same quarter last year. Over the past fourty quarters, Systemair has reported organic growth in every quarter save one.”
