Inside information, 2022-05-27 08:48 CEST --
AS MADARA Cosmetics publishes its audited unconsolidated and consolidated annual report for the 2021 financial year. The report is available in the attachment (in English).
In 2021, we continued to implement our growth strategy and moved closer to the end customer by increasing sales in the online store madaracosmetics.com, expanding our cooperation with the third-party online stores and increasing the number of countries where we fulfil a direct product distributor function by cooperating directly with the retailers. The Group’s turnover for 2021 amounted to EUR 19.37 million, a 20% increase compared to the prior year. In 2021, the Group's profit before taxes increased by 12.7% and profit after taxes by 6.5% compared to the prior year.
In 2021, we brought a range of innovative and long-awaited products to the market. The turnover of the new products amounted to EUR 1.4 million. Among the 16 innovations introduced by the MÁDARA brand, it is important to note the development of a technologically sophisticated Vitamin C cream and serum formula, SPF 50 products for higher sun protection and the Deep Matter Bold Volume Mascara.
In 2021, the Group’s long-term investments were over EUR 1.7 million, of which more than EUR 600 thousand were invested in production equipment.
In the coming years, the Group’s expansion will be based on stronger development of such markets where we take over the distribution function, we will develop trade in new and growing markets (including third-party online stores), continue to actively develop our online shop platform, and strengthen cooperation with third-party online store channels. We also expect growth in the contract manufacturing and print-on-demand segments. Selfnamed is the first technological startup of AS MADARA Cosmetics, which we developed to satisfy the demand for the production of small batches. We have created a separate production process and a self-service online platform selfnamed.com. The Company had a successful launch and we see a positive market response.
Management guidance for the turnover target of the Group for 2023 is EUR 27 million and remains unchanged.
The shares of Madara Cosmetics are admitted to trading on Nasdaq Baltic First North Market.
