ZINZINO AB (PUBL): PRELIMINARY SALES REPORT SECOND QUARTER 2020

ANOTHER RECORD-SETTING QUARTER FOR ZINZINO – THE COMPANY IS INCREASING THE FORECAST FOR 2020

Strong growth in Central Europe combined with good development on most other markets contributed to total revenues increasing by 53% to SEK 274.3 (179.5) million during the second quarter. During the quarter, Zinzino continued to adapt and optimize operations to maintain the good sales growth during the pandemic outbreak. The outcome has been favorable, which means that the company adjusts the sales forecast for 2020 by SEK 100 million to SEK 1,100 million.

To achieve more efficient shipments to Central and Eastern Europe, Zinzino opened a new logistics center in Poland during the quarter. In the UK, sales have started for the new, local subsidiary and in Asia, work continued on the acquisition of VMA Life, and the opening of Zinzino in Hong Kong is getting closer. In early July 2020, Zinzino launched a new version of www.zinzinotest.com, the site where over 500,000 blood test analyses have been made – now with updated functionality, design and layout.
