  • Net sales: CHF 116.7 m
  • Operating result (EBIT): CHF 9.3 m
  • EBIT margin of 8 percent
  • Earnings after taxes (EAT): CHF 6.3 m

Von Roll continues to profit from the energy and mobility transition and has thus been able to generate a significant increase in sales and profitability for the first half of 2022. Order intake has been increased to CHF 126.4 m.

Despite geopolitical challenges Von Roll has been able to increase their net sales to CHF 116.7 m in the first half-year 2022 (first half-year 2021: CHF 108.6 m). Sales before currency effects has thus been increased by 8.1 percent in comparison to the previous year.

The operating result (EBIT) amounted to CHF 9.3 m. Adjusted for one-off effects, the Swiss company was able to increase its operating EBIT margin from 5.5 percent in 2021 to 8 percent in the first half of 2022. The operating result has been higher at CHF 14.0 m the previous year, but also included one-off effects of CHF 8.1 m. These resulted from the sale of real estate and other divestments.

Earnings after tax (EAT) in the first half-year 2022 amounted to CHF 6.2 m. In the same period of the previous year the EAT was CHF 26.3 m. This included the aforementioned one-off effects as well as non-operating income from the sale of non-operating real estate in Switzerland amounting to CHF 12.9 m.

Despite the energy crisis in Europe, the Von Roll group expects a continuing positive demand for its products. The accelerated expansion of green energy and the mobility transition will further this positive outlook for the company.
