Marimekko raises its earnings guidance for 2021, net sales estimate remains unchanged

In its Financial Statements Bulletin published on 18 February 2021, Marimekko estimated that the Group's net sales for 2021 would be higher than in the previous year and comparable operating profit margin would be approximately on a par with the long-term goal of 15 percent.

Marimekko now raises its earlier estimate of comparable operating profit development in 2021. The upgrade is due, in particular, to improved sales outlook for the full year, supported by a very strong first quarter of the year. According to the new estimate, the Marimekko Group’s comparable operating profit margin for 2021 is expected to be approximately on a par with or higher than in the previous year (2020: 16.3 percent).

The Group’s net sales estimate given in the Financial Statements Bulletin remains unchanged. The revised financial guidance in full is as follows: the Marimekko Group's net sales for 2021 are expected to be higher than in the previous year (2020: EUR 123.6 million). Comparable operating profit margin is estimated to be approximately on a par with or higher than in the previous year (2020: 16.3 percent).

Despite a very strong first quarter, the company continues to estimate that because of the seasonal nature of Marimekko’s business, the major portion of the company’s euro-denominated net sales and earnings are generated during the last two quarters of the year.

However, the instability caused by the coronavirus pandemic in Marimekko’s markets continues, and therefore there are significant uncertainties associated with the trend in net sales and earnings. These uncertainties are described in more detail in the Financial Statements Bulletin.

Marimekko’s interim report for the first quarter will be published on Thursday 20 May 2021 at 8:00 a.m. EET.
