Risks and Uncertainties

Risks and Uncertainties

Short-term uncertainties are related to any major changes occurring in the company’s core business areas.

If prolonged, the downward trend in the global economy may affect customers' investment decisions and liquidity, and thereby the company's sales and profits. Signs of the impact of the global economy on customers’ investment decisions and the schedules of planned projects appeared steadily throughout the period under review.

Furthermore, the growth in customer project sizes is increasing the risks related to projects and their profitability.

Risks and their management are described on the company’s website at www.digia.com.

The planned demerger of Digia and the stock exchange listing of Qt involve certain risks which, if materialised, may affect Digia's operations, financial position, financial result and share value. These risks will be discussed in more detail in a prospectus to be published.
