Sébastien Baril, Chairman of the SergeFerrari Group Executive Board, said: "For the first quarter of 2022, SergeFerrari Group posted sustained business volumes in line with previous quarters. We are leveraging an innovative product offering that meets market requirements and trends in favor of light, sustainable components amid continuing positive trends at this stage of the year. Although the health situation remains uncertain, we are approaching the rest of the year with confidence thanks to our relationships with customers and partners, for whom our primary aim is to preserve the quality of our products and services against a backdrop of inflation and pressure on industrial equipment capacity."
Q1 2022 performance
SergeFerrari Group’s first quarter revenues for 2022 totaled €79.1 million, up 23.4% at current consolidation scope and exchange rates and up 22.4% like-for-like versus the first quarter of 2021. This performance was due to strong sales momentum in most of the Group’s strategic markets, a favorable comparison base due to the easing of health restrictions versus the first quarter of 2021 and a positive price impact for the period. The increase in volumes contributed 8.1% to the increase in revenues, while exchange rate fluctuations had a positive impact of 1.0%.
All regions posted strong first quarter sales:
Northern Europerecorded brisk sales, up 26.9% at current consolidation scope and exchange rates and up 26.0% at constant consolidation scope and exchange rates.
Southern Europe – Americas also posted robust growth with revenues up 26.6% at current consolidation scope and exchange rates and up 26.5% at constant consolidation scope and exchange rates.
Asia-Pacific – Middle East – Africa sales were up 6.1% at current consolidation scope and exchange rates and up 1.8% at constant consolidation scope and exchange rates. Slower growth in this region was due to lockdown measures in Asia and the deferred resumption of major infrastructure projects.
In a market that remained buoyant overall despite health restrictions and inflationary pressure, individual business line performance confirmed the Group’s strategic positioning:
the modular structures market is enjoying sustained demand as event-based projects are gradually resumed;
solar protection continues to post growth based on strong demand in the residential sector;
tensile architecture remains impacted by the resurgence of health concerns, particularly in Asia;
furniture and marine markets continue to post positive momentum.
The Group has raised its FY 2022 revenue target from €310 million to €325 million in view of the impact that inflationary pressure on raw material and energy costs will have on its selling prices.
