Kamux Corporation, Inside information, 30.12.2022 at 11:00
HÄMEENLINNA, Finland, Dec. 30, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Kamux lowers its outlook for the year 2022 revenue and operating profit due to weaker than expected sales and car sales margin during the fourth quarter.
Rationale for updating the outlook
Demand for Kamux's used cars contracted significantly more than expected in all operating countries during the fourth quarter. The contraction in demand is due to low consumer confidence, caused by the war in Ukraine and its effects, such as the energy crisis. In addition, Kamux's margin on car sales was significantly lower than expected due to weak demand and the measures taken to adjust the inventory to meet the demand.
New outlook for 2022:
In 2022, Kamux expects its revenue to be over EUR 950 million. The company expects its adjusted operating profit to be approximately EUR 16-20 million.
Previous outlook for 2022:
In 2022, Kamux expects its revenue to be at least EUR 1,000 million and adjusted operating profit to be approximately EUR 23-26 million.
