LR Group off to a solid start in financial year 2022

  • Group sales amount to EUR 68.6 million in first quarter of 2022

  • Normalised EBITDA at EUR 9.6 million

  • Effects of the Russia-Ukraine conflict impact business activities

Ahlen, 31 May 2022 – LR Global Holding GmbH, Europe’s leading digital social selling company in the area of high-quality health and care products, published its figures for the first quarter of financial year 2022 today. According to these, the LR Group managed to achieve sales (revenue from sold goods) of EUR 68.6 million in the first three months of 2022. This represents a decline of 13.7% compared to the extraordinarily strong quarter of the previous year (previous year: EUR 79.5 million), which was characterised by positive effects in view of the COVID-19 pandemic. By contrast, the general consumer mood cooled noticeably in the spring of 2022 against the backdrop of the effects of the Russia-Ukraine war and higher consumer prices.

Furthermore, the LR Group achieved normalised EBITDA of EUR 9.6 million in the first quarter of 2022, compared to EUR 11.3 million in the same period of the previous year. This decline is essentially due to the lower sales compared to the previous year.

“The LR Group started into the new financial year as expected. With the outbreak of the Russia-Ukraine war at the end of February, the general conditions have also changed considerably for our company. The economic growth we had anticipated is being slowed down by the effects of the war in Ukraine. The resulting uncertainty as well as the consequences of the currently rising inflation can be felt in all European markets. We are working hard to manage the challenges on the procurement side for the LR Group and to ensure that our products can be supplied. Under the given circumstances, we were successful at this in the first quarter,” explained Valdemaras Gordinskis, Vice President Global Controlling and Investor Relations of the LR Group.

LR Group drives business activities forward

In the meantime, the LR Group is concentrating on creating the conditions for the company’s sustainable successful development. This includes the construction of a new logistics centre with modern picking and shipping technology at its site in Ahlen. As part of this project, LR will further automate its logistics processes so that orders can be processed even faster in the future. On the product side, the focus in the current financial year is on intensified sales activities for its aloe vera products – an LR trademark since 2002. The product range currently comprises around 60 products containing aloe vera and the range is constantly being expanded.

“Despite the more difficult general conditions, we will continue to drive our business activities forward and support our partners in the individual markets in the best possible way. On the occasion of our 20th anniversary this year, we will focus on our aloe vera products, which are a true success story for LR. More than 72 million bottles of Aloe Vera Drinking Gels alone have already been sold. In these challenging times, we are once again focusing on a close exchange with our partners, whether through the established digital channels or our Business Days, which were recently held in Germany and met with a great response. Overall, we see ourselves well positioned and will continue to drive the important strategic topics forward,” added Dr. Andreas Laabs, who took over as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of LR Health & Beauty SE on 27 May 2022 and thus assumed management responsibility for the entire LR Group.

The report for the first quarter of 2022 is available online as of today on the company’s website at https://ir.lrworld.com/.

In Ahlen, the company has established one of the most modern Aloe Vera production sites for Aloe Vera Drinking Gels in Europe. LR has been firmly established in the market for over 35 years with around 1,200 employees and more than 300,000 registered community members.
