CEO comments, Jessica Skon
“The third quarter currency adjusted growth was 12 percent and the operating profit increased 2 percent. BTS Europe, BTS Other markets and APG continued to have both double-digit revenue growth and increased profit. The slowdown in growth and profit was due solely to BTS North America operations.”
Outlook for 2022
“The outlook for 2022 is favorable. Consistent with the last quarter’s report, we believe that earnings will be significantly higher than 2021.”
