SeaDragon announces new Squalene sales contract

SeaDragon announces new Squalene sales contract

Australasia’s largest refiner and blender of fish oils, SeaDragon (NZX:SEA), has announced that it has signed a new squalene sales agreement that will underpin its financial performance for the current financial year and into 2016.

Following on from its March announcement of a major new raw material supply contract for its existing plant, SeaDragon has signed a sales contract to take the refined squalene to customers throughout Australasia.

The contract covers finished product using a significant amount of the raw material obtained from the supply agreement. The names of the party and the terms of the contract are confidential.

SeaDragon Chief Executive Ross Keeley said: “This contract represents a significant win for SeaDragon and vindicates our decision to take bold steps to secure raw material for our squalene processing factory.

“We are now very well positioned for the current financial year and beyond and are looking forward to 2015 when the completion of our new oil refinery plant in Nelson will allow a major expansion in our range of Omega-3 fish oil products.”
