Net Insight AB [publ] Corporate Reg. No 556533-4397

First Quarter 2011
·         Net Sales of SEK 66.6 million (60.5) corresponding to a growth of
10.1% compared with the same period previous year. The growth rate in comparable
currencies amounts to 24%.

·         Operating earnings of SEK 2.9 million (6.2), corresponding to an
operating margin of 4.3% (10.3).

·         Earnings per share of SEK 0.01 (0.16), decrease is related to a
positive one time effect in Q1 '10

·         Total cash flow of SEK -19.5 million (53.1), the cash flow in Q1 2010
included a SEK 60 million positive one time effect.


The first quarter of 2011 showed continued revenue growth. Revenues increased by
10 % which, in comparable currencies, would be an increase of 24 %. The gross
margin for the quarter is lower for the same reasons as explained earlier,
foreign exchange effects and continued deliveries under larger projects. The net
cash position at the end of the quarter remains strong at 216 MSEK (205 MSEK).

The business during the first quarter can be characterized by a good flow of
repeat business including continued deliveries under contracts won in 2010. The
revenue split between our main business areas remained approximately the same,
Broadcast and Media Networks 63 % (69 %), DDT 34 % (30 %) and IPTV Cable TV 3 %
(1 %). We continue to win DDT business and early in the quarter we were selected
for a new project in Morocco, in partnership with Ericsson. Also the early wins
for DDT in Argentina have been followed up with recently announced expansions.
At the same time the Broadcast and Media Network business remains substantial
and important for us.

In terms of visibility we have increased our involvement significantly in key
trade shows around the world and we have participated as a technology partner in
several big sporting events. Our Nimbra solution was for instance used as the
best worlds alpine skiers gathered in Garmich-Partenkirchen, for the 2011 FIS
alpine world ski championships in February. Likewise, the EBU and other
important customers used our equipment to transport signals from the cross-
country world championships held in Oslo.

Our network of partners representing Net Insight on the front line in indirect
sales has now reached a number of more than 40 partners covering 65 countries.
During the first quarter our indirect sales amounted to 62 % of our total
revenues. While this figure is encouraging it should only be seen as a sign that
our partnership strategy is working, however the percentage of indirect sales
will of course fluctuate over time.
