Commenting on Elopak’s performance in the first quarter, CEO Thomas Körmendi said:

” Elopak has made a strong start to the year, with profitable, organic growth underpinned by our core strategic goals. In this quarter we have delivered excellent performance across our whole business, especially in India, where our newly acquired operations have delivered results that are far better than anticipated. We have experienced some tailwinds in terms of pricing and input costs and we will likely see some volatility between quarters going forward, we remain committed to achieving our strategic objectives and expect to continue to grow our top-line and strengthen our results.”

“We are experiencing significant inflationary pressures on our costs, which we expect to impact our EBITDA margin in 2023 compared to current level. However, our ongoing, strategic initiatives to continue to grow our top-line and strengthen our results are progressing according to plan. We remain optimistic on the longer-term market fundamentals.”
