Due to this new forecast, the Board has also issued a financial forecast for 2013 to the effect that sales will be in the interval of SEK 130-190 M, and that the EBITDA margin will be 20-35%.

FPC and CrucialTec (CT) published a joint press release today concerning a three-year supply agreement, expanded product-development and production partnership and a revised forecast for sales of sensors during 2013. Due to the forecast increase, combined with the market trend following Apple’s acquisition of FPC’s competitor Authentec, the Board of FPC today issued a financial forecast for 2013. Based on the lead times for mobile projects, from the point of design-win (DW) to volume order, FPC assesses that most of the above-mentioned forecast sales for 2013 will be secured during the third and fourth quarters.

“In October, we received our first DW for a mobile phone from a highly respected Japanese mobile phone manufacturer,” says Johan Carlström, President and CEO of FPC. “Our assessment is that we are close to a number of other DWs over the next six months. Last Monday, we also received our first order for area sensors since 2011 and now see a steady recovery in the market. As previously announced in our Third Quarter Report, FPC will now act proactively to capitalize on these new opportunities by increasing the number of employees, consultants and development projects over the coming year. However, this initiative will entail higher cost and investment levels than previously anticipated. The Board of Directors will therefore evaluate various alternatives for financing the expansion and has engaged Carnegie Investment Bank as financial advisor.”
