2018 was the first year Omniteksas incurred losses, standing at 0.17 million euros, from a net profit of 0.27 million euros in 2017. Sales dropped 17 percent to 11 million euros.

Omniteksas estimates a turnover of around 12.9 million euros this year and has even more ambitious plans for 2020 when it expects sales to reach 15 million euros, the Verzlo Zinios writes.
