Significant events after the end of the interim period

A multi-year agreement has been entered into between the Group and a customer in Europe for the supply of liquefied biogas (LBG). It is an important part of Scandinavian Biogas' strategy to increase deliveries of liquid biogas.

On October 22, the Company convened an Extraordinary General Meeting to be held on November 23, 2020. The Board proposes that the Meeting resolves to authorize the Board to issue up to 10 million new shares and a reversed split of shares 10:1. The authorization is proposed to be valid until the next Annual General Meeting.

No other significant events have occurred after the end of the period.

CEO comments on the interim period

‘The year started in a good and satisfactory way in the first quarter, but we are not happy with the second quarter as the pandemic affected us negatively. During the third quarter, however, we were able to ensure an improvement both in the Group's profitability as well as in cash flow. In July, the Company received a surprisingly negative ruling in Korea regarding the dispute with Ulsan City regarding an upgrade facility. The negative impact that this caused has already been recognised in the second quarter.

  

COVID-19 has significantly affected the global and Scandinavian economy and has affected the Group's business somewhat, partly with lower raw gas production in Stockholm and partly with somewhat reduced demand. The Group continues with preparations for planned growth opportunities, focusing on Stockholm LBG and Skogn II investments. The timing of other growth opportunities is affected by financing opportunities for equity and debt, however, the capital market has become stronger after the summer. In the autumn budget, the Government has proposed continued temporary support for biogas production and confirmed preparations for a long-term production support system. Conditions for the Swedish biogas industry are about to be strengthened.’
