Össur hf.: Össur hf: Interim report Q3 2021

Announcement no. 17/2021

Interim report Q3 2021

26 October 2021

Jon Sigurdsson, President & CEO, Comments:

"EMEA and APAC continued to perform well, in line with expectations, while the COVID-19 Delta variant primarily impacted sales in Americas, which is our largest market. Although organic growth was impacted by softer sales in Americas, the performance in other key markets strengthens our belief that the long-term prospects and underlying fundamental drivers of the Prosthetics and B&S markets are not expected to change and that we are well on our way. As innovation and technological leadership remain at the forefront of our 50-year history, we celebrated when para-athletes who wear Össur prosthetics, won 28 medals at the 2020 Tokyo Paralympic Games and Team Össur athletes set four new World Records and three new Paralympic records. I am grateful for the continuing efforts of all Össur employees around the world and thankful for our long-standing relationship with our customers and end-users."
