QUOTE FROM THE CEO

In the first two months of 2020 we saw good year-over-year growth, but the quarter ended with a big drop in revenue as a result of the restrictions introduced to combat the coronavirus pandemic. In spite of this, we continued to grow in Germany, by 28 percent, driven by collaborations with e-tailers. In Finland we grew 15 percent year-over-year and our own e-commerce grew 23 percent in the quarter. Maintaining liquidity is very important and at the date of publishing this report the company has SEK 163 million in available liquidity”, commented CEO Henrik Bunge.
