HansaMatrix reaches EUR 7.8 million in revenue in Q4 2022

The high-tech company HansaMatrix reached a revenue of 7.8 million euros in Q4 2022, according to operational data. This represents an increase of 61.3% compared to Q4 2021 and 2.9% compared to Q3 2022.

The company attributes the increase in revenue to growing customer demand in the data networking and industrial sectors, including the launch of production of recently acquired customer products. The increase in revenue was driven by active supply chain management and organisation of component deliveries, as well as the downward trend in the global semiconductor shortage.

HansaMatrix previously forecasted that the company would reach revenues of 26-28 million euros in 2022 and 32-34 million euros in 2023.

Reaching new highs

HansaMatrix achieved its highest-ever revenue for the same period in the first nine months of 2022: 20.17 million euros, according to the consolidated interim financial report. Revenues are up 18% compared to the same period last year. Nine-month EBITDA is 1.67 million euros, while EBITDA margin is 8.3%.

In the first nine months of 2022, the group reported a loss of 1.29 million. The group’s net profit for the first nine months of 2022 was negatively impacted by a number of non-cash flow items, including losses on investments in associates, changes in the fair value of the EIB loan, exchange rate fluctuations, and interest expenses related to leases. For a better comparison of profitability between periods, the group has calculated a normalised net profit which was positive for the first nine months of 2022 at 0.002 million euros.

In the 2021 financial year, HansaMatrix’s consolidated revenue from contracts with customers was 21.96 million euros. This is 2.77% less than in the previous financial year 2020.

BaltCap group company to buy HansaMatrix

At the end of November 2022, the Competition Council adopted a decision to allow the private equity and venture capital investment fund BaltCap group company Emsco to acquire HansaMatrix. Emsco intends to make a voluntary share buyback offer to HansaMatrix shareholders in accordance with the procedure set out in the Share Buyback Law and has submitted a merger notification to the Competition Council. Having assessed the information provided by Emsco and available to the Competition Council, it has been concluded that the merging parties and their related undertakings do not operate in the same relevant market or in a vertically related market.

In the further process, Emsco will apply to the Financial and Capital Market Commission for authorisation to make a voluntary share buy-back offer. This offer is planned to be made to all HansaMatrix shareholders in accordance with the procedure provided for by the laws and regulations and after obtaining all necessary approvals.
