Comment from CEO Claus Egstrand:
"Although the times have been challenging for Enzymatica, we look optimistically into the future. We have a fantastic product, strong and experienced partners, and we are convinced that protection against viruses is of great interest to consumers following the pandemic. As for the overall development in Q3 2021, we saw the incidence of colds and the flu returning toward normal levels, along with promising sales trends in new markets such as Poland and Romania. However, we anticipate a lag of up to 6 months in our sales to partners. There are many positive signs, and we expect that the cold/flu market will continue to recover in Q4/2021 and Q1/2022. It is always hard to know what the future holds, but we are cautiously optimistic that we will see good growth in our sales in 2022, compared with 2021."
