Chief Executive Officer statement
“Hexagon Ragasco, Hexagon Purus and Hexagon Digital Wave delivered a strong quarter, while Hexagon Agility’s profit margins were unsatisfactory. Profit improvement initiatives are expected to yield effect in the coming quarters,” says CEO Jon Erik Engeset.

The fundamental market drivers are strong for all Hexagon’s business segments and demand across most segments is healthy. Government policies and regulations in relevant geographies are expected to drive significant growth.
