Following the positive trend of the first half of 2022, RIBER consolidated its position on the market during the third quarter, concretizing four system orders, including two production systems, while continuing to focus its development on services and accessories.

The order book at September 30, 2022 came to €39.1m, with 93% growth versus September 30, 2021.

The systems order book is up 149% to €31.4m, based on six production systems, compared with two in 2021, and eight research systems, versus five in 2021. It does not include i) the order announced on October 25 for one research system and ii) the option to buy announced on June 8 covering four production machines for which the firm orders will be confirmed in 2023 when the export license is obtained.

The order book for services and accessories remains at a high level, with €7.7m.

Outlook

In a climate of international supply tensions, RIBER is doing everything possible to achieve 2022 full-year revenues close to the last year’s level.

The high level of the current order book already ensures a strong growth in 2023 revenues of over €40m.

In a dynamic market context with strong demand for the company's systems, RIBER is expected to continue taking orders during the fourth quarter of 2022.

Next date: 2022 full-year revenues will be released on Tuesday January 31, 2023 (before start of trading).
