Statements from the Chairman and the CEO
Chairman of the Board, Thomas Marschall, states:
“The technology in Waturu Holding A/S can be used in a number of areas, which is why the company has established a number of subsidiaries within, among others, Medico and Aquacultur.
The subsidiary Aquaturu A/S is now facing a capitalization and commercialization to ensure that the company can help make the production of land-based fish farming even more sustainable.
Aquaturu A/S is planned to be listed on the stock exchange in Q4 2020 and it will be exciting to follow the international interest in the company's products.
As chairman, I would like to thank the employees of the Waturu Group for their great efforts in first half of 2020.
The company will launch deliveries of its own products as well as OEM products in Q3 2020 and as Chairman of the Board, it is my hope that the Danish politicians will use the "green transition" to pull Denmark out of the crisis.
We are facing a time of great challenges for the economy and thus jobs could be lost and savings in the public sector could be necessary.
At Waturu Holding, we can support the "green transition" with our water and energy-saving products, create new jobs and help secure the necessary CO2 reduction. Denmark is in a unique position where we can prove that new technology can reduce CO2 and with a 70% reduction target, which has been adopted by law and which must be met by 2030, it requires a bet on new technology.
Let us together prove that energy optimization of properties, can contribute to the world looking towards Denmark and our technologies. The "green transition" can pull Denmark out of the crisis which will be good for the creation of new jobs, good for the environment and good for Waturu Holding A/S”.
CEO, Toke Reedtz states:
“The first half of the year has been full of value-creating activities. The second half of the year will focus on production and sales, and to ensure that Aquaturu A/S and Watgen Medical A/S are listed on the stock exchange. In this regard, I would like to thank new as well as existing investors for the huge support the company encounters. Personally, I have high expectations for the technology in both Aquaturu A/S and Watgen Medical A/S and that the technology can make a significant difference.
Waturu Holding A/S has business potential in a number of industries and work is underway continuously on the development and testing of technology that can be expected to be commercialized in new subsidiaries. In our annual report, we described, among other things, an opportunity to develop the technology to be able to purify drinking water. A business area without attention in Denmark but with great focus abroad.
There will also be a focus on a product that can secure our buildings against Legionella. The market for such a solution is international and opportunities have already been explored on starting a United States based company with just that focus.
In the first half of the year, we also entered a collaboration within wastewater treatment, a sector that is struggling with increased rainfall and demands for less discharge of untreated sewage water into our enviroment."
