CEO comments on the interim period
The Group's profitability and cash flow from operating activities improved significantly during the first three quarters and we were able to secure the refinancing of the corporate bond, which is very gratifying.
The biogas study in Sweden will be published before the year-end. We assume that the conditions for the Swedish biogas industry will be strengthened.

Matti Vikkula 
President and CEO
