Key events after the end of the fourth quarter

CEO's comment

As you know, 2020 was a very challenging year around the world. BioGaia's sales started strongly, however, with growth in line with expectations. Although the Covid-19 crisis started seriously in March, BioGaia posted a sales increase of 7% in the first quarter followed by growth of 10% in the second quarter. But in the third quarter we could see that the pandemic would have a negative impact on sales. On 12 October, we announced that we expected reduced sales and lower earnings for both the third and fourth quarters. The fact that our sales go mainly to our partners and distributors explains the slightly delayed effect on sales.

After a decrease in sales of 21% (excluding foreign exchange effects, -17%) for the third quarter, sales fell by 10% (excluding foreign exchange effects, -4%) in the fourth quarter compared to the same period last year with continued weak sales due to Covid-19 in some of our largest and oldest markets, such as Italy and Spain. Here lengthy lockdowns have affected BioGaia's sales since consumers have been unable to visit doctors and physical pharmacies, where the bulk of sales in these countries take place. On the other hand, we have seen good sales in countries where we have implemented an omnichannel strategy, such as the USA and China, something that strengthened our conviction that we need to invest further in direct consumer marketing in many of our markets.
