Preliminary sales for the fourth quarter amounted to approximately 600 MSEK (463), which corresponds to 30 percent
growth, mainly organic. EBITA for the fourth quarter is expected to be between 62 and 67 MSEK (28).

The order backlog at the end of the quarter was 97 percent higher than at the same time last year, of
which half of the increase is driven by already communicated submarine cable orders. Since the second
quarter of 2020 Hexatronic has chosen to publish preliminary sales and profitability figures due to the
prevailing uncertainties caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
