Etteplan releases a profit warning and lowers and specifies its guidance for 2023

The revenue is estimated to be 355-370 M€  and the operating profit (EBIT) to be 26-28.5 M€

In its interim report published on August 10, 2023 Etteplan estimated its revenue in 2023 to be EUR 360-380 million, and operating profit (EBIT) in 2023 to be EUR 28-31 million.

Etteplan is now updating and specifying its previous estimate of 2023 revenue and operating profit (EBIT) due to the weaker-than-expected business development in the third quarter. According to the new estimate, the revenue is estimated to be 355-370 M€ million euros and operating profit (EBIT) to be 26-28.5 million euros.

The negative development of the outlook is effected by the weakening of the market situation and, in particular, changes in the demand of consumer product manufacturing customers in the Technical Communication Solutions service area in Central Europe.

"The market's uncertainty is reflected in our business and customers' decision-making is still cautious. The beginning of the year was weighed down by large one-time costs related to adapting operations and the modest performance level of the Software and Embedded Solutions service area. At the moment, market demand is weakening, especially in the Technical Communications Solutions service area in Central Europe, where we have more customers that manufacture consumer products. We will continue to take measures to improve operational efficiency, but our profitability will fall short of the level we previously estimated and unfortunately we need to update and specify our guidance", President and CEO Juha Näkki, Etteplan Oyj says.

Etteplan's interim report for the third quarter will be issued on Tuesday, October 31, 2023.
