Vimian’s year-end report for 2023

A strong platform for profitable growth

  • Revenue increased by 18 per cent to EUR 331.7m (281.3) with organic growth of 11 per cent
  • Adjusted EBITA reached EUR 87.3m (73.4) at a margin of 26.3 per cent (26.1)
  • Operating profit (EBIT) reached EUR 41.3m (39.4) including EUR 8m negative impact from litigation claim valuation adjustment
  • Profit for the period totalled EUR 10.5m (-7.2)
  • Earnings per share before and after dilution EUR 0.02 (-0.02)
  • Cash flow from operating activities of EUR -28.6m (25.3) impacted by the litigation payment in the second quarter, excluding this EUR 37.1m.

“In a year characterized by geopolitical uncertainty and a tough macroeconomy, Vimian stayed close to its customers and accelerated organic growth to 11 per cent, ahead of the animal health market. The adjusted EBITA margin improved to 26.3 per cent as Vimian progressed integration of acquired companies and efficiency measures deliver results”, says Patrik Eriksson, CEO of Vimian Group.

Revenue for the fourth quarter increased by 9 per cent to EUR 82.5m (75.5) with organic growth of 7 per cent. Adjusted EBITA reached EUR 22.6m (18.0) at a margin of 27.5 per cent (23.9).

“We deliver a solid fourth quarter with continued good growth and improved profitability. Looking ahead, Vimian’s overall strategy remains unchanged, and we will continue build strong global market positions in niches of the animal health market with unmet medical needs. Entering 2024, we continue to grow organically at high single digits, and see potential for some M&A discussions to pick up momentum during first half of this year. I see significant potential for value creation going forward through both organic and acquisition driven growth”, says Patrik Eriksson.
