CEO Comment

“Sales for the first quarter were lower than the same period last year, which in its entirety is due to the low partner sales. In the Swedish market, sales were up by 21% compared to the same quarter last year, and our market share continues to increase. During the quarter, ColdZyme was MDR certified as one of the first cold products in Europe, which opens up great commercial opportunities. We can make stronger and better health claims, that will fortify our marketing, and we have received validation of the high quality of our scientific and regulatory documentation. I see that 2024 has every chance of being an important and exciting year for Enzymatica. We have the MDR certification in place, we are hoping for good research results during the second quarter, and we are engaged in discussions with potential partners with great faith in our technology, our product and our capabilities”, said Claus Egstrand, CEO.

Significant events during the quarter

  • On February 16, 2024, the Board of Directors decided to carry out a rights issue, with preferential rights for existing shareholders, of SEK 27.4 million before issue expenses. The rights issue was 72.7 percent subscribed with the support of subscription rights and 7.9 percent without the support of subscription rights. The remaining part of the rights issue was subscribed through guarantee commitments from Enzymatica’s three largest owners, through wholly or partly owned companies, and the Chairman of the Board and CEO. After issue expenses, the company receives SEK 25.5 million.
  • ColdZyme® was certified in March 2024 under the EU MDR (Class III) regulation. The MDR replaces the EU’s Medical Device Directive (MDD) and imposes stricter requirements on the evidence for clinical validity, safe design and market surveillance. ColdZyme is one of the first cold and flu products to be certified under the regulation.

Significant events after the quarter

  • No significant events were reported after the quarter.

Other events during and after the quarter
