The company improved cash flow from operations and strengthened balance sheet during the quarter due to continued streamlining of operations, including reduced cost base, headcount and investments.

Combined with a stronger than ever product portfolio, we are well positioned for increased profitability and growth in the coming quarters,” says Eilert Hanoa, CEO at Mamut. |
