Elektrobit releases first half report

Elektrobit has announced it's first half results, showing growth in sales but a loss in operating profit.
"The operating result from the first half of 2012 was slightly positive and somewhat below our targets due to the costs related to collecting the receivables from TerreStar Companies, and due to the bigger than estimated project costs in both Business Segments," said EB'S CEO Jukka Harju.

Harju said a settlement with TerreStar is expected to generate a positive cash flow approximately USD 13 million after estimated tax effects, and would result a non-recurring positive effect of approximately USD 1.6 million on the company's operating result.
