Clavister Q4’19: First comments
Clavisters Q4 showed lower order intake and higher costs (adjusted) than estimates. The deviation in order intake is mainly related to the CSP segment, where numbers still fluctuate between quarters. Clavister continues to report improved gross margins and raises its target to +80%, from previous +70%, indicating sustainable improvements. Overall, a quarter with mixed outcomes, on a preliminary basis, we will mainly cut our short-term sales numbers, reflecting a lower utilisation of investments in sales personnel than previously estimated..
