Von Roll: Strong per­for­mance in the first half-year 2022

  • Net sales: CHF 116.7 m 
  • Ope­ra­ting result (EBIT): CHF 9.3 m
  • EBIT mar­gin of 8 percent
  • Ear­nings after taxes (EAT): CHF 6.3 m

Von Roll con­ti­nues to pro­fit from the energy and mobi­lity tran­si­tion and has thus been able to gene­rate a signi­fi­cant incre­ase in sales and pro­fi­ta­bi­lity for the first half of 2022. Order intake has been incre­a­sed to CHF 126.4 m. 

Des­pite geo­po­li­ti­cal chal­len­ges Von Roll has been able to incre­ase their net sales to CHF 116.7 m in the first half-year 2022 (first half-year 2021: CHF 108.6 m). Sales before cur­rency effects has thus been incre­a­sed by 8.1 per­cent in com­pa­ri­son to the pre­vious year.

The ope­ra­ting result (EBIT) amoun­ted to CHF 9.3 m. Adjus­ted for one-off effects, the Swiss com­pany was able to incre­ase its ope­ra­ting EBIT mar­gin from 5.5 per­cent in 2021 to 8 per­cent in the first half of 2022. The ope­ra­ting result has been hig­her at CHF 14.0 m the pre­vious year, but also inclu­ded one-off effects of CHF 8.1 m. These resul­ted from the sale of real estate and other divestments.

Ear­nings after tax (EAT) in the first half-year 2022 amoun­ted to CHF 6.2 m. In the same period of the pre­vious year the EAT was CHF 26.3 m. This inclu­ded the afo­re­men­tio­ned one-off effects as well as non-ope­ra­ting income from the sale of non-ope­ra­ting real estate in Switz­er­land amoun­ting to CHF 12.9 m.

Des­pite the energy cri­sis in Europe, the Von Roll group expects a con­ti­nuing posi­tive demand for its pro­ducts. The acce­le­ra­ted expan­sion of green energy and the mobi­lity tran­si­tion will fur­ther this posi­tive out­look for the company.
