Arbonia with challenging second half-year of 2022

Arbon, 12 January 2023 – The financial year 2022 was challenging due to increased material and logistics costs, material shortages, a dramatic rise in energy costs, increased interest rates, and the Swiss franc significantly appreciating. In general, this situation did not ease in the second half-year of 2022 due to factors such as energy costs continuing to rise. 

The situation was made worse by a rapid destocking among all major customers in the fourth quarter of 2022. This significant and unexpected volume reduction, particularly affecting radiators, shower enclosures, and to some extent doors, resulted in the margin being negatively affected as a contrast to the strong performance that is normally seen in the construction industry during the second half-year. However, the growth businesses strategically built up in recent years (for heat pumps, ventilation units, underfloor heating and energy storage) performed in a positive manner, demonstrating high double digit volume growth in. 

Despite achieving organic growth of slightly above 5% resulting in revenues of around CHF 1.2 billion, the EBITDA margin without one-time effects will be around 9.5%.*
