Comment from Frank Schuil, CEO and co-founder of Safello:

"Even with the cyclical Swedish summer slumber we had +80% net turnover growth compared with the same quarter last year, and we saw a healthy recovery in volumes in September. We have accelerated our efforts to move from being the Swedish market leader to becoming the dominant market player by reaching important milestones. Firstly, the launch of Safello Wallet makes us the first company in the market offering a seamless one-stop-shop experience to crypto in Sweden with BankID, Swish and storage. Secondly, we have permanently lowered our fees to a sustainable level but also introduced minimum fees to protect margins. Lastly we have launched our first marketing campaign to attract a wider audience and build brand awareness. Our growing team now boasts top talent from both fintechs and financial institutions and we continue to improve diversity and gender ratios, striving to be market leaders there as well."

For environmental and cost reasons, Safello Group AB has decided not to print the report. A printout may be distributed to shareholders upon request.
