The gross margin increased by 2.3 percentage points to 12.5 per cent, driven by a solid development in the Core markets segment. An overview of the media coverage follows below:
Haypp Group’s CEO Gavin O’Dowd was invited to participate in DiTV, the online streaming channel for Dagens Industri, the most prominent business newspaper in the Nordic region, to comment on the quarter and what can be expected going forward.
"We are very happy with releasing our Q2 results today. Our primary driver of growth is nicotine pouches which have grown by and by over 50 per cent organically. In addition to that, that has converted to a very strong profit growth, where we have grown by over 57 per cent year-on-year," says Gavin O’Dowd, CEO of Haypp Group, and continues regarding the category of nicotine pouches:
"Our objective is to prioritise growth because of the incredible growth of the category itself; the category will continue to grow by about 40 per cent per annum for the foreseeable future, while we are going above and beyond that. So, it’s about maintaining that growth. With that growth, we are building our entire infrastructure for scale; that scale is generating the earnings which we see manifest itself in both our growth margins and our EBIT. And with the EBIT, as a result of the nature of our business, we tend to have a very strong cash conversion. So, the strategy doesn't alter for these conditions; we are keeping straight ahead."
