In the first quarter of 2021, Hexagon (excl. Purus) generated NOK 690 (802) million in revenues and recorded an operating profit before depreciation (EBITDA) of NOK 87 (82) million. The US Truck and European Transit bus business had a strong start to the year while it was a light quarter in Mobile Pipeline. Headwinds from the global semi-conductor shortage impacted the Light-Duty sector negatively. Hexagon Ragasco had a strong start with sales volumes primarily to European markets, while Hexagon Digital Wave started the year with modest sales volumes. However, development of a pipeline for digital products/services, strengthened the positioning of the Hexagon Digital Wave business.
