Bactiguard publishes updated financial targets in alignment with sharpened license focused strategy


Following the announcement of Bactiguard’s sharpened license focused strategy on October 5, 2023, the company today publishes its updated financial targets. The updated financial targets relate to growth and profitability with net sales in excess of 1 billion SEK and an EBITDA of 500 million SEK to be delivered by year-end 2028.

The updated financial targets should not be perceived as a forecast but rather reflect what the Bactiguard Holding AB (publ) Board of Directors and Executive Management team consider to be reasonable mid-term expectations of Bactiguard, given the sharpened license focused strategy. The previous strategic goal of 1-2 new license agreements per year is replaced by the target to have at least 10 application areas in license partnerships with products in the market by year-end 2028.


The updated financial targets are anticipated to be achieved following capacity- and competence-building within Bactiguard’s licensing business and with the assumption that the license business and partnerships evolve accordingly. The transformation of Bactiguard will impact the income statement over the coming nine months, but profitability is expected to be achieved during 2024.


Thomas von Koch, CEO comments: “In essence, the targets are the same, but we are prolonging the time horizon until year-end 2028. In addition, we replace the strategic goal of 1-2 new license agreements per year with a target related to application areas and license partnerships with products in the market. Measuring this will give a better understanding of how we make progress in terms of expanding our technology.”


Previous financial targets

Bactiguard’s previous financial targets were announced on February 8, 2022, and covered the period up to 2026. The targets related to growth and profitability, with annual revenues of at least 1 billion SEK and annual EBITDA of at least 400 million SEK in 2026. In addition, Bactiguard had a strategic target of 1-2 new license agreements per year.
