Quarterly volatility is more prominent due to a changing environment relating to
the Coronavirus pandemic and associated short-term demands in the supply chain
in all market segments ArcticZymes serves.
A new milestone was reached for two consecutive quarters, achieving >100 MNOK in

is to achieve 120 MNOK in annual sales revenues during 2021."
