Q2 2023 IFRS financial results
Revenue in Q2 2023 was down 5.1% to EUR 170.2 million from EUR 179.4 million in Q1 2023 and was up 2.3% compared to EUR 166.3 million in Q2 2022. The US Dollar depreciation negatively impacted both year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter revenue. The decrease compared to the previous quarter was mainly due to a softening in demand compared to a strong Q1 2023.

Pro forma gross profit in Q2 2023 was up 3.2% to EUR 60.2 million (35.4% of revenues) from EUR 58.4 million (32.5% of revenues) in Q1 2023 and increased by 10.9% from EUR 54.3 million (32.7% of revenues) in the year-ago quarter. The margin increase is due to lower procurement costs related to the recovery of supply bottlenecks and the US Dollar depreciation.

Pro forma EBIT in Q2 2023 was EUR 12.1 million (7.1% of revenues), up 24.3% from EUR 9.7 million (5.4% of revenues) in Q1 2023. Compared to the year-ago quarter, pro forma operating income increased by 87.9% from EUR 6.4 million (3.9% of revenues). The increase in pro forma EBIT is mainly due to the improvement in gross margin.

Operating income increased by 29.0% from EUR 6.2 million in Q1 2023 to EUR 8.0 million in Q2 2023 and increased by 72.6% compared to EUR 4.7 million in Q2 2022.

Net income was EUR 3.3 million in Q2 2023, down 9.3% compared to EUR 3.6 million in Q1 2023 and down 54.9% compared to EUR 7.3 million in Q2 2022. The decrease in net income was due to higher tax charges in Q2 2023.

The company’s cash and cash equivalents decreased by EUR 18.6 million to EUR 48.6 million compared to EUR 67.2 million at the end of Q1 2023 and decreased by EUR 14.6m million compared to EUR 63.2 million in Q2 2022.

The company’s net debt increased by EUR 9.2 million from EUR 24.3 million in Q1 2023 to EUR 33.5 million in Q2 2023 and increased by EUR 32.5 million compared to EUR 0.9 million in Q2 2022.
