Veye’s Take

Zoono’s Global sales, both off-line and on-line, continue to increase as brand awareness grows and the Company's new distribution strategy starts to produce results. The major focus of the Company in the current financial year is the further evolution of its business model, particularly in regard to adding to its network of distributors in key countries and/or regions and building on-line sales. The ultimate objective is to increase repeat sales at better margins from longer-term direct contracts with larger and multinational customers. This was achieved in the half-year with an improvement in the gross profit margin (52% compared to 41% for the previous half-year). Several new contracts are also currently under negotiation. The improved gross profit was due to higher operating revenues and margins from bulk product sales (compared to the sale of finished product sales). We had said that the stock had very strong support around $1.20. Holding this, it had the potential to go up to $1.60 also. It has comfortably crossed this hinderance. A day before, it had an inside bar indicating another good move. It is now in consolidation phase and holding $1.65 the stock can have very good potential. “Buy” was given to “Zoono Group Limited” at the price of $0.815 on 31 January 2020 thus giving more than 123% return in less than a month till now. Veye maintains a "Hold" on “Zoono Group Limited” at the current price of $1.82
