Just in time for its 200th anni­ver­s­ary, the Von Roll Group is in good shape. Des­pite chal­len­ging macroeco­no­mic con­di­ti­ons, the long-estab­lis­hed Swiss com­pany’s net sales for the 2022 finan­cial year came to CHF 227.7 mil­lion (2021: CHF 218.6 mil­lion). At con­stant exchange rates, this resul­ted in orga­nic sales growth of CHF 12.4 mil­lion (+5.7 per­cent) com­pa­red to the pre­vious year. Order intake also deve­lo­ped posi­tively at CHF 242.1 mil­lion, with Von Roll AG bene­fi­t­ing from the ongo­ing energy and mobi­lity transition.

The ope­ra­ting result (EBIT) amoun­ted to CHF 14.8 mil­lion, cor­re­spon­ding to an EBIT mar­gin of 6.5 per­cent. In the pre­vious year, the ope­ra­ting result was CHF 21.9 mil­lion. Howe­ver, this inclu­ded the pro­ceeds from the sale of pro­per­ties in the amount of CHF 6.7 mil­lion as well as other one-off effects.

The cash flow from ope­ra­ting acti­vi­ties was CHF 24.0 mil­lion (2021: CHF 0.2 million).

The Group result after tax (EAT) was CHF 9.6 mil­lion. In the same period of the pre­vious year, the Group result after tax amoun­ted to CHF 30.8 mil­lion, but inclu­ded one-off effects of CHF 19.6 mil­lion from the sale of pro­per­ties in Switz­er­land, among other things.

In the 2023 finan­cial year to date, the Von Roll Group has recor­ded a signi­fi­cant incre­ase in inco­m­ing orders. Over­all, the com­pany expects robust demand in its core mar­kets and con­ti­nued posi­tive busi­ness deve­lo­p­ment in the cur­rent year.
