ZINZINO AB (PUBL): INTERIM REPORT FIRST QUARTER 2021
MAINTAINED STRONG SALES GROWTH WITH RECORD PROFITABILITY
The first quarter of 2021 was yet another quarter in which good sales growth was combined with high profitability.
Total revenues in the Group increased by 38% and amounted to SEK 333.4 (242.1) million, after sales growth in all regions except the Nordics. Strongest growth continued to be found among the other European regions. Asia and North America also increased significantly during the quarter. Profitability was also very good, and the EBITDA result amounted to SEK 37.3 (26.3) million for the quarter. The EBITDA margin thus amounted to a record 11.2% (10.9%). The adjusted EBITDA result amounted to SEK 37.3 (4.1) million and the adjusted EBITDA margin to 11.2% (1.7%). The margin improvement is achieved through economies of scale due to improved efficiency in IT systems, logistics and within the organization.
