Significant events after the end of the period

As anticipated, the Swedish Board of Agriculture confirmed in early 2021 that the total biogas subsidy scheme will amount to SEK 200 million for the year, with applications accepted from April through December 2021. No payments will be received under the scheme during the first quarter. Management expects the total subsidy amount for 2021 to be received according to plan, although over a nine-month, rather than twelve-month, period. 

Management’s assessment is that the production stability issues in Skogn have been completed and thus LBG production is again expected to be at planned level.

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

All financial information in this report pertains to the Group unless otherwise specified. Figures in brackets relate to the year-earlier period.

CEO comments on the period

‘The listing of the Group’s shares on Nasdaq First North Premier was by far the most significant event for the full year 2020. With the new share issue of SEK 350 million before transaction costs, we were able to secure equity financing for the Group’s growth plan while also gaining a broader, stronger ownership base. Anchor investors in the issue were Länsförsäkringar Fondförvaltning, Handelsbanken Hållbar Energi and Skandia Sverige Hållbar. Together, they acquired shares for SEK 130 million.

In another important and welcome step on our path forward, our Norwegian partner TrønderEnergi has now converted its investments in Biokraft, our previously jointly owned subsidiary, into shares in the Group. TrønderEnergi is now the Group’s largest shareholder.

The acquisition of Ekdalens Biotransporter improves the Group’s position in the market for industrial and agriculture-related organic waste streams for biogas production. The acquisition is an important step in the development of the Group’s business and gives us better oversight of the upstream and downstream production process in the value chain.

Operationally, the year started off well and satisfactorily in the first quarter. Unfortunately, performance deteriorated during the second quarter when COVID-19 impacted our customers and, consequently, our operation. We were able to secure improved profitability and cash flow for the Group during the third quarter. However, maintenance measures conducted at the plant at Skogn during Q4 had a negative impact on LBG production volumes. Our assessment is that the production stability issues in Skogn have been completed and thus LBG production is again expected to be at planned level.

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a major impact on the economy globally and in Scandinavia. It has had some impact on the Group’s business due to lower levels of raw production at the Stockholm treatment plants and somewhat weaker demand from certain customers, while recovery from the pandemic has been delayed. On the brighter side, the Swedish government confirmed in its autumn budget that it is preparing a long-term production subsidy scheme based on the Biogas Commission’s proposal published in late 2019. The Group is also seeing greater interest in biogas from large customers, particularly for liquid biogas (LBG). Conditions for the Swedish biogas industry will therefore be improved. In 2021, we will continue to focus on increased production and on the planned growth plan’
