CEO Jing Liu comments

As we look back on the first half of 2022, I am proud to say that we have kept our promise of being a solid and stable company even in the most unstable times with an impressive net sales and profit increases in Q2 and H1. We have been very active during the past quarter by strengthening our IP protection with several new patents, receiving a record high order of AMPTS® and Gas Endeavour® systems, and witnessing a 100 % increment of sales revenue of BPC® Go — compared to its predecessor. It is safe to say that we have an exciting time ahead of us as we work hard on preparing for the launch of several other next-generation instruments.

The increased market interest is also clearly shown in our financial figures for Q2 where we have received net sales revenue amounting to SEK 8,3 million — an increase of +43 percent compared to the same period in our record year 2021. Our net profit increased by +78 percent and landed on SEK 0,99 million. Our financial figures for H1 are equally impressive with SEK 13.8 million in net sales, an increase of +25 percent. We also received an increase in net profit for H1 by +20 percent, amounting to SEK 1,1 million. BPC is once again demonstrating remarkable growth in unstable times and keeps its ambition of being a solid and stable greentech company driven by innovation.”
