April - June
January - June
During the second quarter of the year, both the former chairman Leif Frykman and former CEO Mats
Victorin resigned from their posts. Such management changes sometimes have a negative impact on
the business, but I believe that SDS has continued to be strong despite the uncertainty that such
changes can bring. We have a competent organization that works very closely with our customers and
over 95% of our resources are located outside Sweden.
The work of recruiting a new CEO is in full swing, but these processes take time. Therefore, it is very
comforting and gratifying that SDSs longtime CFO, Martin Schedin, has agreed to temporarily step into
the role of CEO. I and the entire board are working closely together with Martin and the companys
management to accelerate our product and growth strategy with continued improved profitability and
cash flow as an objective.
Chairman of the board, Seamless Distribution Systems AB
Interest in our services and our systems has remained strong during the second quarter of the year.
Uncertainty in the market situation has delayed certain investment decisions from our customers
however, we have not noted a slowdown in transactions or business activities. We are therefore
optimistic and believe that investment decisions are only delayed, and we expect the situation to return
to normal during the second half of the year.
Sales during the quarter amounted to SEK 68.9 (69.2) million. Our EBITDA was SEK 15.4 (11.0) million.
The result is lower than our ambitions and a direct consequence of the troubled world situation that led
to some delays at our customers.
At the same time, I would like to emphasize that business activity has been high and that we have
closed several deals during quarter, with both existing and new customers. The quarter ended strongly
with an order worth 8.0 MSEK from an existing customer in Dubai, but we have also done major
business with customers in Nigeria, Zambia, and Djibouti to name a few.
We continue to enter new markets and our expanded product portfolio has continued to attract
a great interest. The technology shift from Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) to Microservices has
made us to a more relevant partner for more operators. We are now entering the future with more
products than before and thus expecting increased opportunities to enter new markets and expand our
relationship with one of our existing customers. We are convinced that our new offer Retail Value
Management (RVM), effectively manages the mobile operators entire distribution value chain and will
generate more business with both existing and new customers.
At the same time, work continues the integration of Riaktr. The product portfolio that came from the
acquisition of Riaktr is now a natural and strategically important part of RVM, but at the same time
continues to create its own business opportunities. An example of this is the deal that Riaktr made with
a new customer in Senegal in mid-May. The deal is made with one of Senegals leading operators and
includes the Smart S&D product, which allows the mobile operator to manage their sales distribution
channels efficiently with using advanced analytics and AI via a very simple and user-friendly interface.
In conclusion, I would like to thank all the employees who continued to deliver despite the challenging
markets and the recent management changes. I believe our philosophy of strong customer focus and a
hard-working culture will continue to make us a very strong organization. I thus have great confidence
in the future, both in the short and long term.
I wish you all a wonderful summer!
