On 30 October, Ericsson Nikola Tesla’s Research and Development Center in Osijek hosted Lider’s Club of Exporters. This is a traditional meeting of Croatian exporters and it was held for the 29th time. There were approximately thirty distinguished exporters, including Ericsson Nikola Tesla, a company which occupies a special place due to the fact that it is Croatia’s largest exporter of knowledge.
Gordana Kovačević, the President of Ericsson Nikola Tesla commented: “In the first nine months of 2018, Ericsson Nikola Tesla Group sales revenue amounted to MHRK 1,080.5, up by 1% year-over-year. Increased investments in mobile networks modernization and digital transformation have enabled a strong sales growth in the domestic market. In addition to operators’ segment, we also recorded good results in Industry & Society segment. Export markets showed lower sales revenue affected primarily by the ramping down of network modernization projects and challenges related to political and economic situation. Opposed to the sales decline in export markets, Ericsson internal market once again recorded a solid growth and contributed to the stability of financial performance.
