AS MADARA Cosmetics publishes its audited unconsolidated and consolidated annual reports for the 2020 financial year. The reports are available in the attachment (in English).
Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, 2020 has been a particularly successful year for the Group. The Group has successfully adapted to the new trading conditions and by putting emphasis on e-commerce channels has achieved excellent results. In 2020, the Group achieved the highest turnover so far of EUR 16.074 million, a 39% increase compared to the previous reporting year, and EUR 3.445 million in profit, a 120% increase over the corresponding period last year.
2020 has been productive in terms of launching new products. The turnover of new products amounted to EUR 2.2 million and several products ranked high on the Parent Company’s list of bestsellers. The development of lipsticks and hygienic lip balms and mastering the new production process was an important milestone of 2020. The products have been available for sale since autumn 2020 and have been positively rated by customers. In addition, the Parent Company has developed eyelash and eyebrow fixation and growth serum, ANTI skin disinfectant line, IMMU oral protection line, Derma Collagen facial skin care product line, as well as moisturizing cream with Centella Asiactica (CICA) plant extract in SOS Hydration skin care line.
In 2020, the Group’s long-term investments amounted to EUR 617 thousand, of which EUR 307 thousand were invested in the production facility. The production capacity of the Parent Company is sufficient to sustain growth at its current pace.
In the coming years, the Group’s growth will be based on developments in foreign markets – activities will continue in existing and will be expanded in several new markets. Direct e-commerce channels of the Parent Company MADARA Cosmetics AS, which showed very good results in 2020, will also play an important role in further development. In 2020, MADARA Cosmetics AS created 14 new job positions to achieve these goals, and further expansion of the team is planned this year as well.
Management guidance for the turnover target of the Group for 2023 is EUR 27 million and remains unchanged.
