Increased profits and record revenues

Net sales in the first quarter increase by 12 per cent and total SEK 391.3 (348.6) million. Operating profit (EBIT) grows with 28 per cent and amounts to SEK 46.1 (36.1) million, which is equivalent to a margin of 11.8 per cent.

During March, the Annual General Meeting decided on a shareholders' dividend of SEK 2.60 per share, totalling SEK 138.2 million.

"We increase our net sales and profits, and improve our margin compared to the same period last year. Our cash flow continues to be strong. As we now turn 20 and leave our teen years behind us, we do it with the sensation that working with what we do has never been more exciting," says Lars Stugemo, President and CEO at HiQ.

During the first quarter of the year, HiQ wins new framework agreements and assignments with forward clients, and is named one of Sweden's Career Companies. This authenticates the view of HiQ as an attractive employer.

"We see simplicity as the innovation of our time. As digitalisation and mobility claim a place in all industries, we become an evident innovation partner for our clients. New business models are taking form, and the possibilities to simplify people's lives through technology are never-ending," Lars Stugemo concludes.

HiQ & BatteryLoop develop more efficient charging infrastructure

BatteryLoop, a company which gives electric car batteries a second life as energy storage systems, launched an energy storage system in the spring of 2021 which makes it possible, among other things, to build charging infrastructure in places where the electricity grid suffers power shortages. In collaboration with HiQ, BatteryLoop is now developing a digital platform that makes it possible to maximize power in the charging infrastructure. The digital platform enables an estimate as to how long a battery has left to live, thus its economic value in a circular business model.

– It is fantastic that our team is joining BatteryLoop on this journey. Circular business models and sustainability are important to us at HiQ, and it really shows with this project. There is an incredible amount to do to streamline the use of energy in society and this solution is an important contribution to that process, says Sven Ivar Mørch, CEO of HiQ.
