THIRD QUARTER 2020 (JUL – SEP)
 
Financial information
·        Net sales of non-durable goods in the quarter amounted to SEK 42.3 (50.1) million, corresponding to a decrease of 16 percent in SEK and 10 percent in local currency. Total net sales (incl. durable goods) in the quarter amounted to SEK 42.7 (54.3) million, corresponding to a decrease of 21 percent in SEK and 17 percent in local currency. The Covid-19 pandemic continued to have an impact on sales during the third quarter, but to a lower extent than in the second quarter. In the important markets the recovery, which began in the middle of the second quarter, has continued in the right direction as the pressure on intensive care has eased. Since transplantation is a life-sustaining treatment and transplants are prioritized by healthcare authorities worldwide, the company's assessment is that the long-term effect on demand for transplant products will remain unchanged.
