ORGANOCLICK PUBLISH ITS INTERIM REPORT FOR Q1 2019

"We have once again wind in our tail with a sales growth of 20 % during the quarter, totalling sales of SEK 22.1 (18.4) million. Our new customers are now generating sales for us but we have also grown with our existing customers. Both the business unit Green coatings & maintenance products as well as Functional wood have a strong growth, but our other product segments are beginning to start up. A changed product mix improves our gross margin (after variable costs) to 46 (44) %. The leverage in our business can now also be clearly seen as we have been able to reduce our operating cost with SEK 1.6 million during the quarter, yet increased our sales with 20 %. In overall, the improvements resulted in a positive EBITDA of SEK 0.8 (-3.0) million and EBIT improved with SEK 2.5 million to SEK -2.1 (-4.6) million."
