Comments from CEO Fredrik Olsson

We are extremely pleased to be able to present the best quarterly sales figures in the history of the Company. Sales surged 39 percent compared with the same period last year and 22 percent against the previous quarter. In the first half of 2015 sales climbed 42 percent compared with last year, which means that after the first six months we reached nearly 80 percent of total sales for 2014. Sales increased significantly in both the US market (42 percent) and the European market (37 percent) compared with last year. Gross profit for the second quarter improved significantly compared with the corresponding period last year. However, legal expenses attributable to the judicial process in the US still had a negative impact, which we expect will diminish over time.

As a result of our successful strategy to transition to direct sales, customers have quickly accepted new products and placed orders. Our customer base is steadily growing, which allows more interaction with our customers. Contact with the end customer is crucial in order to rapidly identify market trends and needs. Direct sales strengthen our future product development and sales, which is an important tool to be able to compete in the US and European markets. Now that we face clear competition in the US, prompt delivery and good customer service are crucial. Sales growth in the first six months strengthens our conviction that Genovis is on the on the right track. In particular, it shows that we can hold our own in a globally competitive market. With our subsidiary Genovis Inc. and warehouse in the US, we can now provide next-day delivery throughout North America.

We can conclude that the new products GingisKHAN and FabRICATOR® Z, which were launched in mid-March and May, respectively, are already responsible for more than 10 percent of total sales since they were introduced. This shows that Genovis can develop new products that customers need. It is extremely gratifying that during the first six months we have shown that we can compete with the largest companies in both the US and Europe. We will continue to introduce new products in the autumn to further strengthen the product portfolio and expect continued positive sales growth.
