Comments from the CEO

“Alligo is well equipped to handle the conditions on the weaker market and our focus is on what we ourselves can influence.”

“During the first quarter, we continued to offset the underlying changes on the market by making adjustments to our cost structure, while also continuing to work to strengthen our offering and position.”

“During the quarter, we initiated the launch of a full range of industrial fixings under our own brand, Inno. The range includes the most common fixing products that our customers buy today.”

“The Nordic region is fundamentally a strong market and as we now put another quarter behind us, I believe that we are also one step closer to a turning of the tide.”
