The global spread of the new coronavirus and the associated containment measures lead to restrictions in operation and thus to demand, but also to a slowdown in installation and network expansion. This also changes the business development of the UET Group. A decline in sales and earnings as well as short-term changes in market conditions, ordering and call-off behavior are expected until mid of 2021.
In order to be able to better benefit from the existing and emerging long-term market opportunities which are arising, among others, from the expansion of mobile networks, increasing bandwidth demand, higher security and redundancy requirements, as well as possible effects of international trade conflicts, the investments in the development of products and markets will be continued and even accelerated in selected areas, such as gigabit systems for mobile networks. Those investments will affect the result. In the long term, however, it is part of the sustainable growth plan.
