Optomed presents Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted operating result as alternative performance measures to enhance comparability of business performance between reporting periods. In July-September 2023, items affecting comparability amounted to EUR 311 thousand and related to increased credit risk with respect to an overdue trade receivable from a customer in China.

CEO Review

Optomed had a great third quarter and I'm very delighted about our performance. Our results were beyond satisfactory. During the quarter, we received among others large customer orders from Spain and China that provide future growth potential in both regions.

In the face of challenges, our team's dedication and strategic execution have propelled us beyond merely satisfactory outcomes. Key financial metrics, including cash flow from operating activities and adjusted EBITDA reflect the effectiveness of our initiatives. When comparing results to the previous year it is important to highlight that during the quarter Optomed received a loan waiver in the amount of EUR 841 thousand that was treated as other operating income and, therefore, affecting third quarter results positively.

While our success in Q3 is gratifying, I must also address the situation of the FDA clearance for our AI fundus camera Optomed Aurora AEYE. At this point, there are no further updates. We are actively collaborating with our partners and regulatory authorities to expedite the clearance process.

Looking forward, we are energized by the momentum gained and remain steadfast in our pursuit of excellence. Our shareholders continued trust and investment are pivotal to our success, and we are dedicated to delivering sustained value. We remain optimistic but cautious.

Thank you for your confidence in our company.

Juho Himberg

CEO

Outlook 2023

Exposure to credit risk and loss allowance
