The 2020/2021 financial year in brief

With the most satisfied customers in the market for many years, Sectra is winning new, extensive customer contracts. The 2020/2021 fiscal year is the strongest to date in terms of order bookings and earnings, and the Group’s three financial goals were exceeded. The operating margin was well over the target of 15%, mainly due to the effect of temporarily lower costs for travel and trade fair events as a result of pandemic restrictions.
