Inside information, 2023-05-26 08:36 CEST --
AS MADARA Cosmetics publishes its audited unconsolidated and consolidated annual report for the 2022 financial year. The report is available in the attachment (in English).
Although global geopolitical and economic upsets in 2022 have slowed down our previously rapid growth pace, the Group has managed to keep the reporting period turnover close to the level achieved in the previous reporting year and generate a profit. As a result, the Group's turnover for 2022 amounted to EUR 18.7 million, a 3.5% decrease compared to the prior year, while the profit after corporate income tax for 2022 was EUR 1.12 million. In 2022 accompanied by the implementation of strategy, which is oriented toward the Group's active proceedings and long-term expansion, the Group's Management Board has fulfilled all the prerequisites to return to stable growth.
In 2022, 16 new MÁDARA skincare and makeup products were introduced to the market, gaining consumer trust and international recognition relatively quickly. For instance, our new peeling serum with hyaluronic acid was named Peeling Product of the Year 2022 by Finnish Eeva magazine. Among the whole range of 2022 innovations, we particularly commemorate the KIND line products made for kids, children, and adults with sensitive skin, as well as Grow & Fix tinted brow gel in 3 shades, which was listed among the best-selling makeup products in the first month after the launch on the market. The turnover of the new products amounted to EUR 1.3 million in 2022.
In 2022, the Group's long-term investments exceeded EUR 1.3 million, of which more than EUR 700 thousand was invested in intangible assets for the e-commerce platform and more than EUR 240 thousand – technological equipment and machinery. The production capacity of the Group's Parent Company is still sufficient to maintain growth.
In the coming years, the Group's expansion focus will be devoted to the more vigorous development of such markets where the Group has taken over the distribution function, new B2C client acquisition and partnerships with new B2B customers, and trade development in third-party online stores. Similarly, as in previous years, developing our e-commerce channel will remain one of the top priorities stimulating further growth. Likewise, by observing promising performance indicators in 2022, we expect more rapid development of SELFNAMED.COM, which would allow us to surpass the break-even point and start generating stable income to ensure profit in the upcoming reporting period.
Management guidance for the turnover target of the Group for 2023 is EUR 22 million and remains unchanged.
