From the CEO

Improved sales and improved results
It is satisfying that we in this quarter are improving both sales and earnings significantly. The improvements regard in comparison to the previous quarter and the corresponding period last year.

The sales development is explained by the positive development of sales of vaginal self-tests to international license partners in the US and the EUWe have also continued positive development of our own brand VagiVital in the home market Sweden. During the quarter, the new VagiVital VS, self-test to identify vaginal infections, was launched in Sweden.

Change in gross margin 51% (66%) in comparison with the corresponding quarter of the previous year is explained by an increasing share of sales to international partners with higher volume but lower margin. With the acquisition of CommonSense Israel, partner contracts with set prices were inherited. Prices are under renegotiation and will increase over time. In combination with increased efficiency in production, this will have a positive effect on the gross margin.

Well positioned to meet current social trends
Looking forward, we see continued positive development. The company’s new strategy and core business with clinically proven intimate self-care based on the diagnose/treat/prevent principle meets a strong social trend, which is reflected in growing sales and a strong order backlog. We continue with great focus on our work to create a unique and market-leading portfolio at the same time we build sales and improve results. According to the previous communicated information in the quarter one report, additional external capital will be needed.
