A message from the CEO.

We are extremely happy with the third quarter of this year, as so many
important events took place for Brighter. We have taken a major step
forward into the production phase, laying a strong foundation for new
and exciting partnerships in the future. We are particularly happy
about finally having our first operator agreement in place; Telia is
a company that has promoted digitalization in society for many years,
and the company clearly shares our vision and ideas about how care
will develop in the future. Starting to work with Telia marks an
important milestone for Brighter. It means that we have a strong
partner for the Swedish launch of Actiste in the second half of 2017.
This is something we are now planning together.

Ericsson is already one of our strategic partners. In this quarter we
worked together on a number of activities to develop our business;
this included presenting Actiste at Ericsson's Digital Forum in
Jakarta in the late summer. As one of our partners, Ericsson has also
been involved in our ongoing negotiations for new potential
collaborations.

Early in the quarter we were able to announce that Brighter had signed
an agreement with Sanmina for the production of Actiste. The main
reasons why we chose to work with Sanmina include the company's
extensive experience of producing advanced medical devices, including
devices for the diabetes segment, and their ISO 13485 certification.
Sanmina's production capacity is also extremely flexible, which
enables us to quickly scale up our process to handle some of the
production locally on other markets if necessary and to exploit any
synergies.

Our main focus over the past quarter has been to negotiate agreements
with mobile operators in Indonesia and Thailand. Since November 2015,
when we launched our Asian campaign, we've learned that it takes time
to build relationships and business in the region and we are very
proud to have been able to get this far in only one year. Our
partnership with Ericsson is off course a key success factor and we
expect to sign at least one agreement by the end of this year.

Thailand and Indonesia are two important markets that clearly need
better diabetes care; the number of diabetics in Indonesia and
Thailand is around 10 million and 4 million respectively; there is
also an extremely high growth rate for the disease in the region. In
Indonesia the number of diabetics has increased by around 6%
annually, which can be compared with around 1% in Sweden. However,
what is most striking is the fact that diabetes is growing in every
part of the world. There has never been a greater need for or
interest in better solutions.

What makes Thailand and Indonesia particularly interesting from a
marketing point of view is the fact that these countries are
implementing different kinds of national health plans, subsidies and
insurance systems. This means that most people can receive care or
are able to manage their disease effectively. There is also an
ambition to introduce a harmonized regulatory system for medtech
products throughout the region through the cooperation organization
ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations). In the future this
will make it easier for us to continue to expand and spread Actiste
in Southeast Asia.

Finally, I would like to introduce the new company Camanio Care, which
is a merger of our activity tool jDome BikeAround and the robotics
company Bestic. We merged these businesses in October, which has
created a larger and stronger specialist company with a future focus.
Although Brighter is a major owner of the company, we will not play
an operational role in the business. Instead we are going to focus
completely on launching Actiste for the diabetes market, while
exploring new potential application areas where this product and our
IP portfolio can create extra value.
