Grevenmacher (Luxembourg) – The Logwin Group's operating result (EBITA) of EUR 51.3m was below the previous year's result (2022: EUR 71.8m). The Air + Ocean business segment generated a half-year result significantly below prior-year level in a more clouded market environment than in previous periods. The Solutions business segment recorded an increase in operating profit, to which all European activities have contributed. The net profit for the first half of the year of EUR 40.8m was in line with the previous year's result (2022: EUR 41.0m).
In the first two quarters of the current year, the Logwin Group generated a free cash flow of EUR 39.2m (2022: EUR 42.2m) based on the earnings development. Net liquidity amounted to EUR 253.4m as of June 30, 2023 (December 31, 2022: EUR 281.7m).
Compared with the disclosures in the Annual Financial Report 2022, the risk situation for the Logwin Group has not changed significantly overall. There continues to be an increased economic risk from the existing inflation as well as from a possible renewed tightening of the energy supply situation in Europe. In addition, uncertainties exist particularly with regard to the current geopolitical tensions.
Compared with the forecast in the Annual Financial Report 2022, no significant changes have occurred with regard to the expected development of the Logwin Group. Assuming a further subdued level of freight rates in the course of the year, the Logwin Group continues to expect a significant reduction in revenues compared with the previous year and a decline in operating result (EBITA).
The aforementioned key performance indicators (KPIs) are an integral part of Logwin Group’s system of key figures and are described and defined in the section „Financial Performance Management“ of the management report of the Annual Financial Report 2022 (page 1 et seq.) in line with the European Securities and Markets Authority‘s (ESMA) Guidelines on Alternative Performance Measures (APM) dated 5 October 2015.
