Summary of the most important events during the third quarter of 2019.
The company's sales during Q3 were SEK 5.27 million (SEK 11.55 Million), which is 60% lower than the corresponding quarter last year. The decrease is due to one off special consignment worth SEK 6.75 Million received in Q3 2018, which gave a very nominal profit of SEK 205K. Excluding the one off deal we had an increase of 10% compared to Q3 2018.

Continued strong influx of new customers. Numisbing's strong customer growth during Q3 gives the company a broader customer base, especially in Europe and Asia. After the third quarter of 2019, the company has 792 active customers compared to 740 customers after the second quarter. We see continued strong development in which our customers invest in more objects

CEO Comments

Dear shareholders,
Both the second and third quarters of 2019 have been characterized by good sales and thus also profits. The period compared to up to Q3 2018, the sales is less, due to more concentration on higher margins deals, than just volume. The effect can be seen very clearly in the increase in profitability even though there is a less turnover compared to last year. We expect even better performance  performance in Q4. Due to new marketing strategy the response from new collectors who have arrived is very positive.
In the collectibles fund Numisbing has invested USD 2.40 Million until Sep 2019. We also serves as an investment advisor and has been developed as expected during the period. Last year, the fund showed strong growth of 28 percent and this year the fund has developed at the same rate and had an 21 percent growth until the end of September in 2019. The fund consists of three different segments A, B and C and has had approximately equal good development in all three segments.
The company has expanded a team of professional numismatics specializing in Arabic and Indian segment of banknotes, coins and stamps.
Half of the company's customers come from the Middle East region and 20 percent of the customers are from India. The remaining 30 percent of customers are scattered around the world.

Well positioned for the future
Great efforts have been made by the management of the company as well as consultants during the quarters to prepare the company for a listing on the Swedish marketplace. Today, the company has a strong and well-reputed board of directors in the Swedish parent company.

We thank you for your confidence and continue our work for growth in 2019 and onwards.
