The ongoing semiconductor shortages are expected to result in significantly increased delivery delays for several of Proact's large system suppliers during the current quarter. Consequently, Proact estimates that the 2021 fourth quarter revenues and results will be negatively impacted.
Proact has seen a strong demand for its systems solutions as well as its services so far in the fourth quarter. However, the global semiconductor shortage is contributing to significant delivery delays at several of the company's largest suppliers, which is expected to result in that systems deals of an estimated amount of SEK 150 - 250 million will not be able to be delivered during the fourth quarter as earlier expected. Despite the good order intake, revenues are thus expected to be negatively impacted by the corresponding amount.
As the semiconductor shortages continue, the delivery situation is expected to be uncertain during the start of 2022, but the company currently does not see any indications of further deterioration of the delivery times and will enter next year with a good order backlog.
"There has been a fast change in the supply chain during this quarter, which will have a short-term impact on our results. However, as a leading IT partner in Europe, we have a very good relationship with our suppliers, which gives Proact's customers the highest possible priority," says CEO Jonas Hasselberg.
Further information will be disclosed in the year-end report on February 10th, 2022.
