Getinge Q3 Report 2021: “Strong order intake and our remediation measures completed in Germany”
“Organic order intake increased by more than 20% in the third quarter, with a strong performance in all business areas and regions,” says Mattias Perjos, President & CEO at Getinge. “Our cash flow remains strong, meaning that we have strengthened our solid financial position.”
Getinge’s order growth was strong compared with both 2019 and 2020. As expected, net sales declined year on year due to record-breaking deliveries of ICU ventilators in Q3 2020. Compared with Q3 2019, sales increased significantly as a result of continuing high demand for products for life supporting ECMO therapy, bioreactors and products for Sterile Transfer, combined with continuing high sales of ventilators and a general recovery in other areas of the business.
“We achieved a milestone during the quarter when we completed our remediation measures under the Consent Decree with the FDA at our production site in Hechingen, Germany”, says Mattias Perjos. “This does not mean that we automatically are out of the Consent Decree, but that all production sites covered by the Consent Decree can focus all their energy on forward-looking activities related to customer value and growth.”
Getinge’s underlying EBITA margin excluding COVID-19 effects continues to improve due to structural mix shift and enhanced productivity.
