STOCKHOLM, April 27, 2021 08:30 CET

 

Due to the recent acquisitions, Frill Holding AB provides forecast and financial targets for both sales and earnings measured as EBITDA for the period 2021-2025. For the current year, sales are estimated to rise to SEK 71 million and then gradually rise to approximately SEK 565 million for the full year 2025. The EBITDA result for 2021 is estimated to be SEK 0.5 million and then gradually increase to SEK 210 million in 2025.

During the previous week, Frill announced that the company had acquired 100 percent of the shares in the companies IQ Fuel AB, Kling Homie AB and Nathalie’s Direct Trade AB. Previously, Frill also acquired Bezzt AB and signed an exclusive Nordic distribution agreement with Bacoccoli.

"I am very pleased that the Frill Group has in such a short time put together a product portfolio of very strong brands, which puts us in a good position to become one of the Nordic region's leading functional foods companies," said Peter Blom, CEO of Frill, in connection with the acquisitions and continued:

“Through a sufficiently large and properly composed product portfolio, we will be an interesting and strong counterpart for buyers at all levels - at both the large chains and at more specialized retailers of functional foods. This allows us to expand quickly, and we have eliminated the risk of a smaller company, with only a few brands/products to offer.”

In more detail, the company leaves the following financial targets after the acquisitions:

2021 2022 2023 2024 2025
Revenue 71 MSEK 182 MSEK 336 MSEK 463 MSEK 565 MSEK
EBITDA 0,5 MSEK 51 MSEK 114 MSEK 163 MSEK 210 MSEK
