Share

Nilfisk, a leading global provider of professional cleaning products and services, reported its Q3 2022 results today. Commenting on the results, Torsten Türling, CEO of Nilfisk said:

“In Q3, Nilfisk managed to continue a positive development from the first two quarters of 2022, despite the current global economic slowdown.

Growth was driven by Branded Professional in all regions and performance was especially strong in the Americas region. This was achieved despite continued manufacturing constraints, particularly in our main US facility. Our Q3 results were also supported by a healthy demand increase in the Asia Pacific region. In Europe, higher revenue from Branded Professional largely stemmed from pricing actions.

Global supply chain challenges continued to constrain growth, but to a lesser extent than in the first half of 2022. Challenges were limited to fewer products and production sites. Demand remained solid for our Professional Business and the order book was marginally higher end-Q3 than in Q2 2022.”

Q3 2022 results

• Revenue amounted to 263 mEUR, corresponding to reported growth of 9.9% from Q3 2021. Organic revenue growth was 5.4%.

• Growth was driven by Branded Professional across regions, while Consumer and Private Label slowed notably in line with their respective markets.

• The gross margin was 39.1% in Q3, compared to 40.7% in Q3 2021. The margin was temporarily challenged by lower capacity utilization and by continued parts availability issues following the US Distribution Center destruction.

• Increased inflationary pressures from raw materials and continued high freight rates were to a large extent offset by determined pricing actions. Overall, the margin level improved over the course of the quarter, and we expect this to carry through into Q4 2022.

• EBITDA before special items decreased by 5.3 mEUR compared to Q3 2021 and came to 29.2 mEUR in the quarter, corresponding to an EBITDA margin before special items of 11.1% compared to 14.4% in Q3 2021.

• Overhead cost landed at 89.1 mEUR in Q3, up 11.7 mEUR versus Q3 2021. The increase included foreign exchange rates effects of 3.6 mEUR; incremental freight costs for outbound deliveries in Americas compared to Q2 2022; and project costs for future material costs savings and modular architecture.

• Total R&D spend increased by 1.5 mEUR compared to Q3 2021 and came to 7.9 mEUR, corresponding to 3.0% of revenue compared to 2.6% in Q3 2021. Investments in strategic R&D projects continued.

• Special items amounted to 3.0 mEUR compared to 0.5 mEUR in Q3 2021. Special items were mainly legal and advisory costs incurred regarding strategic projects such as Business Plan 2026 as well as the ongoing liquidation of Nilfisk Russia.

• Cash flow from operating activities for Q3 2022 amounted to a net inflow of 24.8 mEUR compared to a net inflow of 19.1 mEUR in Q3 2021. The positive development compared to Q3 2021 was driven by changes in working capital and higher financial income.

Mining sector puts energy into ESG, but lacks focus on gender and diversity2.12.2022 08:00:00 CET | Press release

Demand for greater transparency fuels shift in sustainable approach, finds new survey LONDON, Dec. 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Energy efficiency has soared up the list of environmental priorities for the mining industry and now features in the top three for most companies, along with air and water pollution and waste management. It’s one of the key findings from a survey of global mining sector decision-makers published today by mining executive search and recruitment consultants, Stratum International, and independent ESG accreditors, Digbee. Tackling climate change and biodiversity loss come lower on the list of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors for many mining businesses, according to the new report. And there’s a concerning lack of focus on gender and diversity for a sector which needs to change the perception that mining is a male-only environment. The issue is deemed the “least important” social priority for mining companies over the next two years. Will Coetzer
