COMPANY ANNOUNCEMENT

No. 187/2024

        Tvis, 28 February 2024

Interim report Q4 2023 (October 1 - December 31)
(All figures in brackets refer to the corresponding period in 2022 – AUBO Production A/S is incl.in the figures as from 3 July 2023)

Q4 results confirmed.

CEO Torben Paulin:
“As stated in our Company Announcement no. 185 dated 18 January 2024, the kitchen market in Den-mark developed more positively in Q4 than previously expected. Performance was better across all brands, leading to sales exceeding our previous expectations. Revenue in Q4, which included sales from Aubo, was DKK 316 million compared to DKK 275 million in Q4 last year, corresponding to an organic decline of 7.6% in the quarter.

In Q4 the gross margin improved on Q4 last year, driven by an improved sales mix, which in turn was due to the inclusion of AUBO sales and the full impact of the sales price increases implemented earlier.

Earnings in Q4 were negatively affected by an increase in our provisions for potential losses on our ac-counts receivables, amounting to DKK 5.7 million in the quarter. This increase was carried out as a pre-cautionary measure in light of the uncertain trading environment in which we find ourselves at present.

Adjusted EBIT in Q4 ended at DKK 18 million compared to DKK 18 million Q4 last year, and adjusted EBIT for the full year ended at DKK 56 million compared to DKK 103 million last year.

As previously communicated, we further reduced the white-collar workforce with 20 full-time employees in November 2023, to reflect our expectations to the overall activity level in the coming year, and to ensure that the Group can improve operating margins going forward. Considering the short-term headwinds, and to consolidate the business following the strategic acquisition of AUBO Production A/S, the Board of Directors has decided not to propose a distribution of an ordinary dividend for 2023.”

For TCM Group, expectations for the development in 2024 are characterized by a high degree of uncertainty with regards to both the macro-economic development and the geopolitical situation. The effect this uncertainty will have on consumer confidence in general, and the demand for kitchens in particular is difficult to quantify. Market expectations are that inflation will continue to fall, and that short term interest rates will start to decline in 2024, which should support the Danish housing market and thereby the demand for kitchens, especially within B2C sales. However, the timing as to when and by how much short-term interest rates will fall remains highly uncertain, and in addition the present slowdown in B2B sales seem poised to continue well into 2024. In view of this TCM Group does not expect the kitchen market in neither Denmark nor Norway to make a speedy recovery in 2024.

Based on the above, the financial outlook for 2024 for the TCM Group contains fairly wide ranges both with respect to sales and earnings, in line with last year. Our financial outlook for full year revenue for 2024 is in the range of DKK 1,000-1,150 million with earnings (adjusted EBIT) in the range of DKK 55-85 million.
