CEO Fredrik Carling commented:
"Throughout 2021 our focus has been to position ourselves for stronger expansion in 2022. Continued growth, improved gross margin and cost control are the main components of this plan. Year to date, vs LY, we have 12% growth in net sales, 50% growth in gross proft while reducing cost of operations with -15%. In some ways a year of transition to ensure that as we expand more aggressively, we do it in a sustainable manner.
Sweden and Denmark will continue to play an important role in this expansion. They are still markets with further growth potential. Germany, where we to some extent have been restricted in growth, will be the key market for us in 2022 and beyond. With a new strong partner and ability to engage more directly we aim for this market to overtake sales of all other markets in the medium-term future. We also anticipate to see the result of our increased efforts in France to start bearing fruit as we enter next year.
In doing all of this we continue to be reminded of our purpose. Protecting cyclist’s lives. We play our part in the wave of urban cyclists on the increase everywhere. Keeping them safe with the world´sbest head protection available."
