Comments from Tim Thurn, CEO:

Record order intake for U.S. subsidiary

Supported by the all-time high order intake during the second quarter we are
presenting a new all-time high in revenue during the third quarter: sales
increased with 46% to 22.5 (15.4) MSEK. The order intake is amounting to 28.2
MSEK which is an increase of 23% or 5.3 MSEK compared to the same period in
2015.

Success through all our three sales channels: the strongest development
measured in order intake showed the U.S. market through our direct sales
organization. Here we see an increase of 380% to 15.0 (3.9) MSEK. Notable
orders came from two university sites that decided to equip several sites with
the C-RAD solution for gated treatments but also for so called radiosurgery
(SRS-treatments). Another success was the first project for C-RAD in Belgium,
that resulted in an order for several Catalyst, Catalyst HD and Sentinel 4DCT
systems, through our local distributor. C-RAD is working on further developing
the sales channel through our industrial partner. We have received the first
two orders through General Electric. The increasing order intake is indicating
the confidence customers have in C-RAD and confirm that our expansion of the
sales force is successful.

The gross profit margin for the first three quarters has increased from 53% in
the previous year to 56% in 2016. C-RAD is continually working on the
optimization of the supply chain and these measures are providing the
foundation for long-term profitable growth. The Q3 results give first evidence
of the positive impact.

In the law suit between Beamocular and C-RAD, the responsible Patent- and
Market Court in Stockholm rendered a judgement and confirmed, that the rights
of the disputed patent belong to C-RAD. The appeal period will end on November
17.

I am happy to welcome Svea Ekonomi AB as a solid and valued investor as a C-RAD
shareholder. Svea Ekonomi is an independent financial group with operations in
many European countries. This step is strengthening our investor base with long
term oriented, institutional investors. Pending on the shareholders’ approval,
Lars Nyberg will purchase another 600.000 shares. Both actions improves the
cash position in the company with approximately 21 MSEK and prove that the
C-RAD business is attractive to investors.

Now we are in the middle of the fourth quarter. For us it means “all hands on
deck” and focus on the result before New Year’s Eve, founding a solid base for
continued growth in 2017.
