Comment by Peter Holme Jensen, CEO:

"We are excited to announce our first interim report as a listed company. As part of the IPO, we raised gross proceeds of DKK 250 million. This enables us to focus on building a strong commercial organization, continue our efforts in R&D and do our part in creating a more sustainable future. The first six months of 2021 have been satisfactory from a business perspective where we have continued development and testing of solutions in all key markets. We strengthened the organization in all areas, not least with the addition of Matt Boczkowski as Deputy CEO and CCO – Matt’s experience with sales, marketing and business development from global leaders in the industry is key to building a best-in-class commercial foundation and promote a customer-centric commercial culture at Aquaporin. We move into the second half of 2021 with a clear roadmap to grow Aquaporin’s financial footprint and execute on the strategy presented in connection with the IPO."
