Interim report 3rd quarter 2021

Qred continues to grow with profitability. Operating income during the interim period increased by 46% and operating profit amounted to SEK 7.2 million.

Major investments are being made in the development of new smart services and products that make life easier for small businesses. During the interim period, Qred has launched a credit card that gives small businesses up to 45 days of free credit, while we also help entrepreneurs gain better control and understanding of their financial situation.

Qred has signed an agreement with the Nordic Capital Evolution Fund regarding investment in Qred. The investment is made in partnership with Qred's management and founders. The goal is to develop new services aimed at companies and to continue to expand operations in Europe. The investment is dependent on Finansinspektionen's ownership review and closing is expected to take place during the first quarter of 2022.

Instead of issuing credits, Qred has chosen to mediate an increasing share of credits to third parties, which resulted in commission income increasing by 76%, while interest income only increased by 15%.
