2022 first-half results
Vicat Group has today reported its 2022 half-year results.
Commenting on these figures, Guy Sidos, the Group’s Chairman and CEO, said: “The basis for comparison in the first six months was unfavourably high given the sales and profitability levels achieved in the same period of the previous year. In an environment characterised by strong energy cost inflation and non-recurring industrial costs in the US, France and India, major price increases were introduced across all the countries where we operate. For the time being, their progressive impact has almost fully compensated the effects of cost inflation with operating profitability again well above its pre-pandemic level (€229 million in the first half of 2019).
The Group is adapting to this environment by diversifying its procurement sources, honing the energy efficiency of its manufacturing facilities and pursuing a pricing strategy tailored to each specific region in which it operates. The Group is also moving forward with its policy of lowering its greenhouse gas emissions by harnessing existing solutions and investing in technologies that will enable it to reach its 2030 and 2050 targets.”
