Estimate changes and outlook On the back of the strong report, EBIT estimates are likely to come up by around 8-4% in ’21-‘23e. Regarding the outlook, GARO successfully managed to secure supplies in the first quarter, but the limited access to components and raw materials might impact the production in the following quarters. However, the company sees strong demand within charging infrastructure across all markets.
Demand for construction and renovation-related products in the Swedish market is expected to remain stable in the following quarters. Final thoughts and conf call details The share is down c. 5% L3M and is currently trading (pre-Q1 report) at c.
