The Board of Management concluded by providing an outlook for the remainder of financial year 2024.

“We have used 2023 to make the company fit for the future. The investment in the acquisition of Arkopharma and Montavit is a booster for our internationalisation.

Based on the course of business to date in 2024, the Board of Management confirms the guidance for 2024 and expects consolidated revenue of EUR 1,170–1,210 million and adjusted consolidated EBITDA of EUR 305–315 million.
