Strong growth with good profitability

Net sales in the first half of the year total SEK 782.4 (694.8) million. Operating profit (EBIT) is SEK 89.6 (66.3) million, which is equivalent to a margin of 11.5 per cent. Liquid assets total SEK 139.2 million.

"The digitalisation of our surrounding world and society continues at a quick pace. When everything becomes connected, this creates new opportunities to simplify people's lives. Simultaneously, new companies are born and business models are challenged and altered. This development generates great possibilities for HiQ and for our clients, and with the best employees in the industry, we will continue helping our clients to utilise new technology," says Lars Stugemo, President and CEO at HiQ.

The digital development has only just begun and it will continue redrawing the map for all industries and all organisations. The public sector is an area in which this development creates great possibilities to improve people's everyday lives. HiQ is well positioned and signs framework agreements with Kammarkollegiet in Sweden and Hansel in Finland during the second quarter. The agreements make it possible for hundreds of establishments within the public sector to use HiQ as a supplier.

"We continue creating good results and winning new clients, framework agreements, and assignments. Profitability is good and all subsidiaries perform a better result compared to the same period last year. On the income side this is HiQ's best second quarter to date. It's also gratifying that we distributed a dividend of SEK 2.60 per share, totalling SEK 138.2 million, to our shareholders during the quarter," 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.
