Cabka continues to post strong sales figures in third quarter 2022
Amsterdam, 20 October 2022. Cabka N.V. (“Cabka” or the “Company”), a leading integrated circular production company listed at Euronext Amsterdam, has published a trading update for the third quarter of 2022.
- Q3 sales of 50 EURm, up 23% compared to same period in 2021
- YTD Q3 2022 sales of EUR 152 million, up 25% compared to same period in 2021
- Sustained high demand, led by strong performance in customized solutions
Cabka experienced continued high demand throughout the third quarter of 2022. The consistently strong order book has led to sales of 50 EURm, representing a 23% increase compared to the same period last year. With 2022YTD sales figures coming in at 152 EURm, the company remains on track to set an annual sales record.
In line with the strategic objectives as laid out at the beginning of the year, Cabka’s top line growth is fueled by an increased focus on long-term commercial contracts in customized solutions. A strong testament to these efforts was made in September, with the supply agreement between Cabka and leading pallet pooling company CHEP, for a collaboratively developed Foldable Large Container (FLC). First revenues from this project are expected by second half of 2023.
The past quarter was also characterized by continued volatility in energy prices, while the material markets started to show some relief. Overall margins are expected to stabilize as energy markets return to more constant levels. With that in mind, we remain committed to our previously communicated mid-term guidance.
