ORGANOCLICK AB (PUBL) PUBLISH INTERIM REPORT FOR Q1 2020

"The first quarter of the year can be divided into two periods: before and after the COVID-19 outbreak in Europe. The year 2020 started well, with a strong order intake on the Swedish market as well as on our export markets - but since the corona virus hit us with force in the beginning of March, our export markets have stalled. The Swedish sales of ORGANOWOOD® timber and BIOkleen® maintenance products through retailers in the building and paint trade are still doing relatively well, while we are seeing increasing impact on the sales of OrganoTex® through sports and outdoor retailers. What is positive during the quarter is the good contribution to growth by our biocomposites, which mostly is due to increased sales of coffin materials to Fredahl Rydéns."

Translation from CEO Mårten Hellbergs comments to the Interim Report.
