Talenom Plc, Stock exchange release, Insider information 16 December 2021 at 16.30 EET
Talenom’s outlook and financial guidance for 2022
Talenom expects the accounting services market to grow in all of the company's operating countries in 2022 and demand to remain stable. In addition, consolidation in the industry is expected to continue due to, for instance, digital disruption. Talenom’s goal is to continue robust growth and expansion in all of its operating countries and other European countries with significant potential to expand as a forerunner in the digitalisation of the accounting services industry.
Talenom expects 2022 net sales to be EUR 100-110 million and operating profit (EBIT) to be EUR 15-18 million.
The guidance includes the estimates for the Swedish accounting firms Kjell Wengbrand Redovisnings AB and MH Konsult Väst AB, acquired at the end of November 2021. The acquisitions will be completed at the beginning of 2022. The net sales transferred to Talenom from the acquired companies is some EUR 3.3 million annually.
In addition to organic growth and the above-mentioned acquisitions, the guidance includes an estimation of possible acquisitions during 2022, which are subject to significant uncertainty. As in the ongoing year, majority of the total net sales growth in 2022 is expected to come from acquisitions in Finland and Europe. Expanding into new market areas enables the company’s long-term growth.
Acquisitions will have a negative impact on relative profitability in the short term. The profitability of an acquisition target will rise to the level of Talenom’s core business in an estimated three years when the new systems have been implemented at the target. In Sweden, implementation of new software is planned to start in autumn 2022. Talenom’s investments in automation, customer-friendly user interfaces and the small customer segment in recent years will increase the depreciation level relative to net sales, but operational profitability measured by EBITDA will improve.
