H+H  International A/S

H+H International A/S

Today, the Board of Directors of H+H International A/S (hereinafter referred to as “H+H” or “the Company”) has adopted the Interim Financial Report for the second quarter (“Q2 2022”) and the first six months of 2022 (“H1 2022”).

CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER MICHAEL T. ANDERSEN QUOTE

This was an exceptionally strong quarter for H+H fuelled by continued high activity and customer demand. I am pleased with the solid performance across the business in the first half of 2022, which demonstrates our continued ability to negotiate sales price increases with customers to offset the continued inflationary pressure. While the current macroeconomic landscape is clearly causing uncertainties and is expected to weigh on future construction activity, we maintain our financial expectations for the full year. Our focus will remain on delivering strong operational performance and continuing to service customers across our footprint.

PERFORMANCE HIGHLIGHTS FOR Q2 2022 (Q2 2021)

  • Revenue increased by 20% to DKK 1,000 million (DKK 836 million).

  • Revenue growth before acquisitions and divestments measured in local currencies (“organic growth”) was 13% (39%).

  • Gross profit was DKK 320 million (DKK 251 million), corresponding to a gross margin of 32% (30%).

  • EBIT before special items1 was DKK 177 million (DKK 125 million), corresponding to an EBIT margin before special items of 18% (15%).

  • Net profit of DKK 129 million (DKK 93 million).

  • Free cash flow was DKK 165 million (DKK 172 million).

  • Financial gearing was 0.5 times EBITDA at the end of Q2 2022 (0.3 times EBITDA at the end of Q2 2021).
