Riga, Latvia, 20-8-2014 — /EuropaWire/ — The SAF Tehnika’s non-audited consolidated net sales for the fourth quarter of financial year 2013/14 were 3.46 million EUR, increasing by 4% or 0.12 million EUR compared to the fourth quarter of the previous financial year and being by 1.14 million EUR more than sales in the previous quarter – Q3 of FY 2013/2014.

Americas result was by 0.3 million or 6% worse than year before.
