"The new year has started with ice and snow but with a strong January in hand, we feel like we are moving toward brighter times after a weak 2018. Q4 was in line with previous quarters 2018, with a weak Swedish building market as the main reason for our low sales growth. Our net sales during the quarter increased with 4.3 % to SEK 13.1 (12.5) million, totalling a sale of SEK 78.4 (74.7) million for the full year... During the first quarter our focus will be on production and delivery. We are approaching spring which is our most intense period. With our newly signed agreements, substantially larger volumes will be delivered then previous years, and with Baux launch of interior design products, we will also scale up our production of biocomposites... After a weak 2018, we now look forward to 2019 where we have an ambition to return to two digit sales growth and continue to improve our result. We will thereby create value for both our shareholders and further increase the supply of our biobased products that replace the current plastic products."
