Serstech has initiated a cost-cutting program to reduce the impact of the changing market conditions after the Corona outbreak. All essential functions will remain intact, but the program has several contingencies which can quickly be activated if the current situation remains for a prolonged period.
Serstech’s customers are mainly within the security industry and all sales are done through tenders. Many customers have announced delays of the tenders, due to the fact that suppliers and resellers cannot deliver on-site demonstrations, which are mandatory components of the procurement process.
Due to the recent rights issue, Serstech has strong financials and limited debt. Serstech will continue development of the new products, which are due to be launched this summer. The new products will place the company in a strong position to resume sales, as soon as travelling is possible and end-customer meetings can be scheduled.
“Sales will be low for the coming months and we are taking actions to lower our spending fast. Since predictions are hard to make, we are taking every precaution so that we can remain in good shape”, says Stefan Sandor, Serstech CEO.
