Words from the CEO:

An eventful end to Q2 and a clear change in demand in the last month of the quarter.

The second quarter’s net sales of 32 MSEK gave an increase of 5% compared to Q2 2019, while EBITDA decreased by 19% to 7,4 MSEK. Sales and earnings were affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and the profits also include approximately 1,5 MSEK in costs related to our acquisition of Stratford. Adjusted for acquisition costs, we reach an EBIT margin of 25,6% for the first half year, above our long-term goal despite a challenging environment. As the leader of a team or a company, you should be careful with concepts such as “satisfied”, but I allow myself to be proud. Our cash flow from operating activities of 14,9 MSEK also shows that we are strong even in a tough environment.

As Jenny predicted in our Q1 report, the second quarter was heavily affected by Covid-19 in the form of quarantine, closed stores, and veterinary clinics to varying degrees worldwide. We therefore had a lot of time delays in orders and sales. The fact that we came in with a small increase in sales despite an April and May which were clearly affected and the uncertainty was significant is satisfying. Despite a continued large impact worldwide, we can see that our customers have recently become more active. In the quarter, June accounted for over 40% of our sales and the sales from our subsidiaries show that the strong trend continues in July, which is why I look with confidence on the second half of 2020. Our external distributor markets will also be clearly stronger in the second half of the year, as both regular orders have been received and new products will be launched in important markets such as Japan, China, and South Korea.

In most markets, online shopping has increased strongly during the quarter as physical stores have had limited opening hours, and that there have been several restrictions for consumers to move around in the community. Our already largest customer in the US, Chewy. com, had a record quarter and accounted for over 30% of our sales in the US. Our increased market investments in the US have yielded results, we increased our sales by 28% compared to last year. It is still our powder product and the Dental Bones that are growing strongly. The UK is one of the most affected and shut down countries in Europe and there we have really seen a big change in terms of purchasing channel. During the quarter, Amazon UK continues to increase significantly, both for the reason of the expanded online initiatives and closed waiting rooms at the veterinary clinics.

As for other subsidiaries, we had record months in both Spain and Greece in June, which resulted in
a quarter of increased sales in these markets. The Nordic region also closed strongly and increased its sales by almost 50% compared to last year.

Asia and Rest of the world were slightly weaker, but China is back, and we see that the second half of the year will be stronger in 2020 as we have reviewed both orders and forecasts. It feels like the world is waking up and trying to return to how it was before.

In addition to increased business operations, the final phase of the quarter was very intense for us. We resumed a discussion, which began several years ago, regarding the acquisition of Stratford Pharmaceuticals’ operations in Tampa, Florida. We managed to complete the deal on July 1st, an acquisition that changes the future of Swedencare, a so-called. “Game changer”, in my opinion. With the acquisition, we will have a channel to cover 10,000 veterinary clinics, many of whom are not customers of ours today, and we will have a business and management team that will not only develop Stratford as a subsidiary but also contribute to Swedencare’s growth worldwide.

Stratford also has an interesting product range that complements and expands our range in various parts, of which their dermatology products will be particularly interesting to launch in our distribution network worldwide. Finally, Stratford has built a unique process where they can deliver private label products to individual clinics that want their own label on their products. Without synergies and sales partnerships, as we see coming, Stratford also had an extraordinarily strong first half year with a large increase in sales and they, like us, can see that this continues in the third quarter. Therefore, their contribution to Swedencare will be clearly visible in our next quarterly report, which I am of course already looking forward to presenting!

To finance the deal and continue to have a strong financial base, we chose to carry out a directed new share issue to new and existing institutional owners. The interest was fantastic, and we welcome several new extremely reputable owners such as Robur, Berenberger and Consensus to name a few. The great interest gives us the confidence to continue to see how we can best make new steps to approach our goal of becoming the leading dietary supplement company in the world focused on pets.

In order to give the Stratford acquisition and any future acquisitions optimal conditions, the Board saw the need to strengthen the management resources. The desire was to return to the team we had before. My experience in business development and organizational building comes in handy, and that we get Jenny back as CFO was the only requirement I had, the function naturally becomes even more important after Stratford was included. Jenny and I are a collaborative and complementary team and we both look forward to developing Swedencare even faster and better. Our investment in market and brand continues with force and Sara, our global marketing manager who started working with us in the beginning of the year, has started several large projects of which some will be presented in the autumn.

In conclusion, I want to repeat that I am looking forward to writing “Words from the CEO” in future reports as we have a lot going on both in our existing business and with our new acquisition in the US.

Best summer greetings,

Håkan Lagerberg, CEO
