In total Acconeer has sold 324 212 sensors, out of which 74 881 were sold in Q1 2021.
CEO Lars Lindell comments: "The substantial revenue increase in the quarter is to a large extent thanks to the development agreement made with Alps Alpine, but we are happy to see that increased product sales are also contributing to the growth."
- Net sales for the first quarter amounted to kSEK 7,545 (2,150).
- The Gross margin on sales of goods was 74 (59) %.
- Result after taxes amounted to kSEK -11 876 (-17 701).
- Earnings per share before and after dilution was SEK -0.51 (-0.92).

SIGNIFICANT EVENTS DURING THE FIRST QUARTER
- Sweden's Innovation Agency granted Acconeer 4 million SEK for a research project on sleep monitoring with Sleepiz and the University of Gothenburg.
- Acconeer received order from Digi-Key worth USD 47,000.
- Acconeer received order from Glyn Limited worth USD 156,000.
- Acconeer received order from CODICO worth USD 96,000.
- Acconeer and Alps Alpine signed a joint development agreement of Next-Generation Sensing Technology.
- A distribution agreement was signed with Mouser Electronics and the first order received.
- It is the company's assessment that the effects of Covid-19 will have a limited impact of operations in 2021. We expect no impact on either the development side or the manufacture of sensors, while the manufacture of modules will be affected by a global shortage on processors that have arisen in connection with Covid-19. Regarding demand for the company's products we expect further delays in customer projects, fewer start-up projects and that our customers' production rate will be affected by the lack of processors.
SIGNIFICANT EVENTS AFTER THE END OF THE PERIOD
- Acconeer announced A121 pulsed coherent radar sensor, new high-performance product in A1 family.
