“Pace of M&A accelerated in the fourth quarter and revenue increased by 74 per cent to EUR 48.7 million. Organic growth was 9.0 per cent driven by strong growth in our largest segments MedTech and Specialty Pharma, and partly offset by a decline in Covid-related sales in Diagnostics”, says Dr. Fredrik Ullman, CEO of Vimian Group.
Revenue for the full year 2021 increased by 143 per cent to EUR 173.3 million, of which 16.5 per cent was organic.
“For the full year, we delivered 143 per cent revenue growth reaching EUR 173.3 million. Organic growth was 16.5 per cent, ahead of our target of 15 per cent. In 2021, we welcomed 17 new companies and entrepreneurs to Vimian, strengthening geographic reach and expanding our product offering. Including all acquisitions completed during 2021, we reach EUR 214.7 million in pro-forma revenues with pro-forma EBITDA of EUR 66.8 million”, says Dr. Fredrik Ullman, CEO of Vimian Group.
Adjusted EBITA increased to EUR 12.0m (9.5) in the fourth quarter with a margin of 24.7 per cent (33.9) and to EUR 53.5m (23.3) in the full year, with a margin of 30.8 per cent (32.7).
“Adjusted EBITA for the fourth quarter was EUR 12.0 million corresponding to a margin of 24.7 per cent. The lower margin compared to the fourth quarter previous year reflects investments in the organisation to drive growth and enter new markets, strengthening M&A capacity, the establishment of Group functions and consolidation of acquisitions with different financial profiles. The adjusted EBITA margin for the full year 2021 was 30.8 per cent”, says Dr. Fredrik Ullman, CEO of Vimian Group.
