Ekobot AB (publ) (FN STO:EKOBOT) today announces the company's interim report for the period January-June 2023, which is available for review on the company's website: www.ekobot.se

The second quarter of 2023 was characterized by extensive operational work in the field and rewarding sales and marketing work in the Swedish and Dutch markets. A number of our robots were in operation with both organic and conventional farmers, in both Sweden and the Netherlands, and this placed great demands on Ekobot’s operational organization. Important lessons learned during the season contributed to an updated strategic plan for the period 2023–2030.
