Nedap’s revenue in the first months of 2018 was up by 8% compared with the same period in the previous year. The Healthcare, Identification Systems, Livestock Management and Staffing Solutions business units all helped to achieve this growth, while the Light Controls, Retail and Security Management units posted lower revenue for this period.

Outlook

The Board of Directors is optimistic about this year’s potential developments, but finds it too early to make any statements at this stage about the level of growth in revenue over 2018 as a whole. Such growth depends on developments on certain markets and with individual customers, as well as on the general economic climate.
The recently reorganised supply chain is currently still in a start-up phase. Although this is not expected to create any one-off costs in 2018, the situation could result in temporarily delayed deliveries, also given the continuing scarcity of certain electronic components.
