Interim report Q1 2022 (January 1 - March 31)
(All figures in brackets refer to the corresponding period in 2021)
7% underlying revenue growth and solid order intake. Earnings impacted by an unstable supply chain situation in Q1 2022.
CEO Torben Paulin:
“Reported revenue in Q1 was on par with a strong Q1 last year, where revenue grew organically 13% y-o-y. The reported revenue numbers consist of an underlying like-for-like growth of 7% in our core business excluding revenue from third party products. The low margin revenue from the sale of third party products, mainly white goods, declined, which led to a flat total revenue development. We continue to see encouraging growth rates in revenue outside Denmark, which was up 12% compared to Q1 last year.
The revenue growth in Q1 was primarily driven by sales price increases implemented in the quarter. Demand was solid in the quarter, but our ability to fully meet the demand was curtailed by continued supply chain challenges. A restricted flow of both raw materials and components limited our overall production capacity in the quarter.
The supply chain situation was almost back to a normal level by the end of the quarter. However, the unstable supply chain situation led to higher production costs and some loss of efficiency in the production processes throughout the quarter.
Gross margin in the quarter was negatively impacted by rising raw material prices causing a diluting effect on the margin. Furthermore, higher energy and transportation costs impacted earnings negatively. The negative effects were partly offset by the change in sales mix, mentioned above, with a lower share of revenue stemming from low margin third party products.
The Russian invasion of Ukraine has impacted the overall supply of raw materials in the European market. For TCM Group the impact has primarily been felt through further pressure on raw material prices and higher energy and transportation costs.
During the first quarter of 2022 we have announced a further sale price increase in response to the in-crease in raw material prices and rising cost inflation, in particular higher energy costs. Due to the nature of our business the positive effect on margins from the price increases will materialise with some delay.
The Russian invasion of Ukraine, increased inflation, and higher interest rates mean more uncertainty as to future consumer demand. In the short term, however, the order pipeline is solid for the coming 3-6 months providing some visibility and assurance of the short term customer demand.
We are constantly monitoring the development in customer behaviour and demand, and we have prepared a number of initiatives which can swiftly be put into action to mitigate a slump in demand if necessary. It is worth noting that a very substantial part of our cost base consists of variable costs, and we therefore have a very flexible setup and can quickly adjust our cost base according to demand thereby protecting our margin and profitability.
We reiterate our financial outlook: a full year revenue guidance in the range DKK 1,150-1,225 million, corresponding to organic growth of 4-11%, and an adjusted EBIT in the range DKK 140-170 million.”
