Year-End Report for 2016: INCREASED REVENUES FROM SALES OF TEST MATERIALS

–Svenska Aerogel reports a decrease in total income and a negative result for 2016.  Total income amounted to SEK 7,6 million compared to SEK 9,7 million in 2015. The result was -13,0 million compared to -4,9 million in 2015. “The decrease in total income was primarily a result of planned reduced income from ongoing EU projects”, comments CEO Anders Lundström.  

–  It is however interesting to note that the sales from test materials increased by a factor of 12, from SEK 22 000 in 2015 to SEK  281 000 in 2016. That is for me a proof that we are coming closer to the market. We had about 30 customers testing Quartzene® in 2016.

– Thanks to the investments in our plant in Gävle we can offer larger volumes, which means that we have taken the first steps towards the commercialization of our product. We can see a large potential market which, together with our unique manufacturing process, our technical expertise and the IPO we completed in 2016, makes me look forward to 2017 with confidence, continues Anders Lundström.
