In a business update, Polygiene said its sales for the fourth quarter soared by 41.4 percent to a record 26.9 million Swedish kronor (€2.7m-$3.2m) in the fourth quarter of 2020. The company added that Addmaster, its newly acquired British subsidiary, had even stronger growth. Sales to Polygiene excluded, Addmaster’s revenues rose by as much as 69.2 percent to £1.7 million (€1.9m-$2.3m). As previously reported, Polygiene has just completed the acquisition of this global supplier of antibacterial additives for hard surfaces, for SEK 374 million (€36.9m-$44.8m). Polygiene’s strong revenue growth was due largely to the success – in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic – of its ViralOff anti-microbial treatment, which can reduce tested viruses by 99 percent in two hours. The Swedish company’s full annual results are due to be released on Feb. 25.
