C-RAD - Yet another strong quarter in the books
51% organic growth and 12% EBIT beat Strong performance indicating market share gains Currently trading at ’21-23e EV/sales of 7-5x Service standing out in Q2 EBIT beat of 12% Q2 was characterized by a return to normalcy with organic growth of 51%, compared to a quarter severely impacted by the pandemic. Net sales of SEK 61m were in line with expectations, but we note the continued strength in EMEA and the rebound in North America, where the Elekta partnership has started to gain traction. Organic order growth of 24% was slightly below our expectations driven by APAC, where the pandemic has caused prolonged purchasing decisions. The order book was SEK 352m (25% y-o-y) at the end of the quarter, and with Q2’21 LTM order intake 23% above 2019 levels (FX adj.) we believe this shows the strong momentum C-RAD is currently enjoying.

The EBIT margin at 9.9% (ABGSCe 8.9%) drove a 12% EBIT beat, with the gross margin at 62.6% (ABGSCe 60%) due to better product mix.

The implementation is driven by the shift towards advanced high dose RT treatments, where the importance of an accurate patient position is magnified. This trend has, according to the company, accelerated because of the pandemic, which should continue to drive broader adoption of SGRT. However, we also find that the recent high growth implies that C-RAD is outgrowing the market and taking market share from its competitors.
