Successful strategy execution drives strong second quarter
(Oslo, August 17, 2023) Today, Elopak reported strong financial performance for the second quarter of 2023.
- Revenues increased by 8%, to EUR 278.0 million, driven by growth in EMEA and Americas
- Organic growth was 6%, or EUR 14.6 million, adjusted for currency translation effects and revenue from acquired businesses
- Adjusted EBITDA was EUR 41.6 million, an improvement of EUR 15.1 million
- Strong cash flow generation, leverage ratio reduced to 2.6x
- Elopak will build a new plant in the USA to further leverage the high customer demand in the region
Commenting on Elopak’s performance, CEO Thomas Körmendi said:
“Building on our solid performance in past consecutive quarters, Q2 saw Elopak delivering strong profitable growth. Despite inflationary pressures, we remain on-track to achieving our strategic objectives. Our strong performance is allowing us to explore new market opportunities, including building a new state-of-the art factory in the US, and expanding our India operations. “
“Looking forward, we expect to deliver full year revenue growth well above our mid-term target. While we see softening of some raw material prices, the liquid paper market remains tight and higher board prices will have full effect in the second half of 2023. Additionally, the significant inflationary pressures on the broader cost base will impact our full year EBITDA margin. However, based on expected revenue growth, our second half EBITDA will be higher than last year. I am pleased to report this strong performance and remain eager and optimistic for continued sustainable packaging demand”
