It is the company's assessment that the effects of Covid-19 has had a limited impact on operations in 2020. No impact was seen on the development side, while manufacturing was somewhat affected by a global shortage of processors that occurred in connection with Covid-19. Regarding demand for the company's products, we see that some customer projects have been delayed, but the assessment is that this falls within the margin of uncertainty that always exists.
SIGNIFICANT EVENTS AFTER THE END OF THE REPORTING PERIOD
Acconeer receives funding of SEK 4M for project on sleep monitoring with Sleepiz and University of Gothenburg.
