Allterco achieved a 55.0% increase in consolidated operating revenues to BGN 60.5 million (EUR 30.9 million)* in 9M/22. Revenue from the sale of goods and productions amounted to BGN 57.8 million (EUR 29.6 million)*, up 50.1%. Operating earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA) increased by 20.0% to BGN 14.5 million (EUR 7.4 million)* despite targeted increased investments in sales and R&D structures. Earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) increased by 22.9% to BGN 13.7 million (EUR 7.0 million)*. Net result at the Group level was BGN 11.7 million (EUR 6.0 million)* compared to BGN 10.0 million (EUR 5.1 million) in the prior-year period, despite a negative special effect from the write-off of a receivable.

With an equity ratio of 90.4% as of 30 September 2022, Allterco enjoys a solid balance sheet (31 December 2021: 90.6%). Here, in addition to the unappropriated profit, the reduction in non-current bank loans by 19.3% to BGN 1.6 million (EUR 0.8 million)* as well as the payout of a dividend of BGN 1.8 million (EUR 0.9 million) were particularly noticeable.

Cash flow from operating activities with a cash outflow of BGN ‑4.9 million (EUR ‑2.5 million)* compared to a cash inflow of BGN 4.7 million (EUR 2.4 million) in 9M/21 reflects in particular increasing inventories matching higher sales revenue and advance payments to suppliers to proactively address potential delays in the supply chains. Cash and cash equivalents decreased accordingly to BGN 24.7 million (EUR 12.6 million)* as of 30 September 2022 compared to BGN 26.0 million (EUR 13.3 million) as of 31 December 2021, providing a sufficient basis for financing further growth.

For the full year 2022, the management confirms the guidance raised in an ad hoc announcement on 3 November 2022 of an increase in revenues from the sale of goods and productions to EUR 45‑46 million (2021: EUR 30.4 million) and earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) between EUR 10‑10.5 million (2021: EUR 9.6 million).

Dimitar Dimitrov, Co-CEO of Allterco JSCo, commented on product development: “The great appreciation by our customers is the well-deserved reward for our relentless efforts to continuously improve our products, to bring solution-driven new applications and devices to market again and again, and to contribute to seamless integration in the Smart Home in an increasingly connected world. Interaction is particularly important to us, whether through the continuous improvement of user interfaces and user experience or in support. This gives us a development lead of two to three generations over our competitors’ products. We are already looking forward to presenting a variety of new innovative products at CES in Las Vegas in early January 2023.”

Wolfgang Kirsch, Co-CEO of Allterco JSCo, added on business performance: “We are particularly pleased that we grew in all product categories and in all regional markets. As such we exceeded our own expectations. So based on a solid order backlog and a strong start to the final quarter of 2022, we have raised our full-year guidance for 2022 after the end of the reporting period. In this context, our investments in expanding our global sales teams, increasing R&D capacity, and developing the market for professional users are already paying off. At the same time, we have our costs fully under control in the face of multiple economic challenges. Based on the continued demand for energy-saving solutions, we expect a successful year-end business and confirm our raised targets for the full year.“
