In constant currencies, the change was 15.5 percent. EBITDA improved clearly in January-June, being EUR 5.0 million (3.4). The improvement was EUR 1.6 million compared to the corresponding period.
In H1, all markets experienced growth. Growth was strongest in the Americas market area, where net sales grew by 60.3%. The Asia and East market areas also grew strongly in H1.
“The company’s priorities for 2022 are improved profitability, profitable growth and strengthening cash flow. We were successful in achieving these goals,” says Arto Halonen, CEO of Robit Plc.
Considering all identified risk factors, Robit estimates the demand in the global mining and construction industry to remain at the current level. The company estimates that the net sales in 2022 will increase and the comparable EBITDA profitability in euros will improve compared to 2021, assuming that there are no significant changes in exchange rates from the level at the end of 2021.
