INVL Baltic Farmland had revenue of EUR 722 thousand in 2022 and earned audited net profit of EUR 1,968 thousand for the year. Profit was forecasted under the assumption that the value of agricultural land holdings in the balance sheet would not change (except for the evaluation of the land plot sale transaction) and the change in the value of trade receivables by the buyers was not assessed, but a valuation conducted by the company Matininkai showed that land holding value had increased by 9.5% to EUR 18.09 million compared to previous year, or EUR 5.87 thousand per hectare. Excluding these non-estimated factors and the related income tax expense, INVL Baltic Farmland's profit would be EUR 632 thousand.
