The 18th of November 2021. The turnover of ANY Security Printing Company PLC is HUF 31.6 billion in the first three quarters of the year, the expansion in foreign markets is successful, and the export turnover is at a historic high of HUF 10.7 billion.
Operations in the first three quarters of 2020 were hit by the epidemic, as reflected in the lower base period figures. The sale of the 50% stake in the Bulgarian subsidiary, as a non-recurrent item, contributed to the strong third quarter results. ANY’s revenue for the first three quarters of 2021 is HUF 31.6 billion, 57% higher than in the same period last year. Export turnover is HUF 10.7 billion, HUF 2.2 billion more compared to the respective period last year, and it is a significant increase compared to 2019, reaching a historic high. Consolidated EBITDA is HUF 5648 million, which is HUF 3509 million higher than in the base period. Net profit is HUF 3146 million, which increased by HUF 2640 million compared to the same period last year.
As a result of the individual and responsible decision of our employees, the vaccination rate at the Company is 70%, and their persistent attitude supports the smooth business continuity, which is essential to serve the increased capacity needs.
“We achieved an outstanding result in the first three quarters of 2021. Compared to the base year, the growth rate is outstanding, but it is also above the 12% annual growth rate of the last “peacetime” in 2019. Last year, due to the state of emergency, the number of orders fell in all segments. Both the national and international document markets saw a high number of renewals of previously expired documents this year, a trend that is clearly reflected in the numbers. An important factor in the increase in the turnover was the introduction of immunity certificates, which we managed to produce in a very short time with new technology and in three shifts. Exports increased by 2.231 billion. The sale (2 million EUR) of the Bulgarian subsidiary has greatly improved the result (0.6 billion HUF) and will also provide funds for further developments and acquisitions. The improvement in export results is encouraging.
Our dedicated and disciplined colleagues persevered even in the most difficult weeks. In Budapest, Bucharest and Gyomaendrőd we managed to meet the increased demand under the strictest precautions.” – added to the third quarter report Mr Gábor ZSÁMBOKI, CEO of ANY Security Printing Company PLC.
