HARTMANN starts 1st quarter with lower earnings

The rising costs of materials, transportation, and energy, already on the rise since last year, significantly impacted HARTMANN's business performance in the first three months of 2022. The outbreak of the Russian-Ukrainian war exacerbated this development even further. By contrast, for the first time since its outbreak, the coronavirus pandemic no longer had a significant impact on business development. No positive effects materialized as a result of the extraordinary economic situation caused by the pandemic and the market gradually returned to normal, albeit at a reduced level.

Financial year 2021 characterized by coronavirus and progress in the Transformation Program

The 2021 financial year was again dominated by the strong impact of the coronavirus and progress with the Transformation Program. The expected decline in key financial figures is mainly due to the pandemic. The pandemic-related extraordinary demand for disinfectants and personal protective equipment subsided as our customers meanwhile had large supplies on stock. There continued to be a reduced market with low bed occupancy rates in medical facilities and only a gradual increase in the number of surgeries and visits to doctors and pharmacies. Significantly higher material and transport costs also had an impact. By contrast, the strategic Transformation Program had a very positive impact on Group earnings.

Sales and earnings continue to decline

The coronavirus pandemic continued to have a significant impact on HARTMANN's business development in the third quarter of 2021. Across all business segments, the Company generated revenue of EUR 1,704.9 million in the first nine months of the 2021 financial year. This equates to a moderate organic decline in revenue of -5.6% compared to the same period of the previous year. This means that the development of sales has been declining for three quarters in a row. In the third quarter of 2021 alone, profitability is at its lowest level in three years due to pandemic-related economic conditions in the market.

HARTMANN’s sales and earnings decline compared with previous quarters, as expected

The impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the HARTMANN GROUP's business development did not significantly diminish in the first six months of financial year 2021. The positive effects resulting from the pandemic, which were clearly visible in 2020, declined considerably, in particular, the demand for disinfection products and personal protective equipment. At the same time, the pandemic’s negative effects have largely persisted. Also, rising raw material, freight and logistics costs had a negative impact on the development of the business segments.
