Comments from the CEO
There was a great interest to subscribe shares in our company in combination with our initial public offering. We will work hard to create long-term value for both our customers and our shareholders as well as other stakeholders through a full-scale launch of our dynamic glass. Our glass makes properties more attractive by improving energy efficiency and indoor comfort.
During the first quarter and immediately after, we presented our two largest commercial orders to date. ChromoGenics will deliver approximately 550m2 of ConverLight™ dynamic glass to Fabege’s project Grand Central Sundbyberg, which will be certified in accordance with the world’s most established certification system for sustainable buildings. Our dynamic glass was selected for its flexible design and advantages with regard to energy efficiency and indoor comfort. Production is in full swing and delivery will occur during the first half of 2017.
We will also deliver approximately 600m2 of ConverLight™ dynamic glass to Atrium Ljungberg’s project Gränbystaden in Uppsala. This order is part of the expansion of the mall, which is expected to begin during the second half of 2017 and be completed in time for the 2018 Christmas shopping season. Atrium Ljungberg has placed both the environment and sustainability high on its agenda, and the company has selected ConverLight™ because of the glass’s effective solar protection.
We feel that the market is showing considerable interest in our products, and I am convinced that this is just the beginning of a successful journey for ChromoGenics. Our dynamic ConverLight™ glass offers property owners, architects, construction companies and participants in the glass industry cost-efficient solar control. ConverLight™ makes it possible to let in a reasonable amount of sunlight and heat without impairing visibility. This significantly improves the indoor climate. ConverLight™ also helps lower a property’s consumption of electricity, which is high on the environmental agenda for the sustainability work of both the EU and the commercial sector.
A well-respected US analysis firm, n-tech Research, has forecast that the market for dynamic glass will increase dramatically over the next decade. ChromoGenics finds itself in a very interesting position in that the company is facing good conditions to establish itself as a leader in the market.
We will now focus our resources on a rapid expansion by continuing to invest in sales and production, thus creating good conditions for continued commercialization and future profitability!
