CEO's comments

With sales of SEK 174 million (an increase of +32% and excluding foreign exchange effects an increase of +35%) and an operating profit of SEK 67 million, we are very pleased with the third quarter and the robust manner in which the organization has delivered. We can see three external reasons for the good result. Firstly, increased demand from consumers ahead of the winter season, with a focus on the immune system. Secondly, the lifting of pandemic restrictions has led to a rise in visits to doctors and pharmacies and thirdly, several markets, particularly in EMEA, have needed to replenish their inventories and requested that deliveries be moved forward from the fourth to the third quarter.

Following the establishment of BioGaia Japan in 2006 and BioGaia Finland at the beginning of this year, we are now ready to launch BioGaia UK in November. Our ambition with these "direct markets" is to be accessible in these highly interesting markets for probiotics where we previously lacked the right partners that could join us on our strategic journey to build the world's most respected probiotic brand. From November, consumers in the UK can buy BioGaia's complete product range on our own e-commerce platform and from mid-November from Amazon UK. We will thereafter gradually establish BioGaia in other parts of the UK market.

Elsewhere in the world, we are continuing our 32-year success story together with our partners. We are beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel in EMEA (with sales growth of +51% compared with the year-earlier period) in Italy, Spain and Germany, where we launched "back to school" campaigns. APAC (with sales growth of +53% compared with the year-earlier period) has continued to make good progress in part due to our online ventures in China, our sales to dental surgeries and via our own e-commerce platform in Japan and positive demographic trends in Indonesia and Vietnam.

North America remains our strongest growth market due both to the launch of new products (Immune Boost and Prodentis Kids) and our omni-channel strategy whereby BioGaia is available in all consumer channels and through recommendations from the healthcare sector. Latin America noted a drop in sales for the quarter, primarily due to the accrual of orders in Brazil.

Our research companies are continuing research and development into the microbiome, where BioGaia Pharma has received approval for two clinical trials and MetaboGen is focusing on developing next-generation probiotics. In July, BioGaia acquired the remaining shares in MetaboGen and in the third quarter MetaboGen continued its clinical programmes.

To sum up, as the market for probiotics is growing worldwide, in terms of both sales and consumer awareness, life after the pandemic will lead to a greater focus on preventive healthcare. Based on these trends, together with our focus on global brand building and our omni-channel strategy, I remain convinced of our ability to grow.
