Polygiene introduces IFRS accounting standards and prepares for listing on First North Premier during the period 2017 – 2018

Publish date: 5 jul 2017

The Board has decided that the company shall replace the current accounting standard K3 with the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and prepare the company to move its listing from First North to First North Premier during 2017-2018.

“Polygiene’s very strong sales trend and a recently conducted strategic evaluation, have convinced the Board and the management team that this is only the beginning of a long growth journey. The Board has raised the financial target for the period 2017-2022, and according to the new targets, Polygiene should have net sales of more than SEK 400 million, through organic growth, and an EBIT margin of more than 20 percent at the latest in year 2022”, says Richard Tooby, Chairman of the Board.

“Our ambition is to increase the transparency in the company’s reporting to the stock market and to expand the financial information”, says Richard Tooby. “Polygiene is a quality company with strong growth and the change to Nasdaq First North Premier allows for, amongst other things, further institutional ownership in the company”, concludes Richard Tooby. 

First North Premier imposes more stringent rules on companies regarding information and accounting principles than that of First North. These stricter requirements are broadly consistent with the regulatory framework applicable to the regulated marketplace Nasdaq Stockholm.
