2012 Group full year results
Impreglon Group surpasses its own sales forecast.
The year 2012 was characterized particularly by the continuation of the 'Buy & Build' strategy. With six acquisitions on four continents in five countries, it was a record-breaking year for the Impreglon group in terms of acquisitions.
Sales rose 20% over the previous year (75 million Euro), with organic growth accounting for about half of that. The preliminary results, particularly EBIT and EBT, were influenced negatively by special factors such as the delayed start up of a new plant and acquisition expenses. After initial analysis of the numbers, management has decided to use 2013 to concentrate on consolidation and to continue the 'Buy & Build' strategy with no more than one or two acquisitions and without capital increases.
The group companies' budgets as well as re-emerging economic optimism are reasons for management to confidently anticipate 2013. With 28 plants in 13 countries on four continents around the world, Impreglon is a global leader in surface engineering.
Sales for the full year 2012 were 90,888k Euro, up from 75,485k Euro for 2011.
