CEO Mathias Lundoe Nielsen comments:
“Firstly, I want to thank all the subscribers of the issue. With the capital raised, Nustay has been given the necessary resources to ensure we can continue driving the business towards our ambitious goals. Prior to the unfortunate COVID-19 situation, we had set ourselves on a solid trajectory and gathered great momentum across all measures, from sales to our profitability targets. This gives us every reason to remain absolutely confident in there being a great demand within the travel market for the easy-to-use, personalised and cost-efficient travel services that Nustay offers. For this reason, it is necessary to emphasize Nustay's potential, which will continue to be realised as the COVID-19 crisis comes to its end. I am convinced that once the market stabilises and demand beings to increase once more, we will be able to quickly regain our momentum and continue to drive the business towards profitable and sustainable growth.”
