CEO Juha Kalliokoski:

“The market for cars is in a state of change that is influenced by a number of factors: technology change, power source and climate debate, emission measurement changes and driving and car related tax policies that are difficult to predict. All of these together have created uncertainty amongst consumers, which is very clearly reflected in new car sales. As a company focused on used cars, Kamux’s position in this change is different. Despite the market disturbance, people’s need for mobility has not changed, and we have been able to respond to customer needs more flexibly than retailers of new cars. I am very pleased with Kamux’s positive development in this operating environment, where the strength of our strategy stands out.

The second quarter was characterized by strong implementation of our growth strategy and Kamux’s concept. Our revenue grew by 22.9%, totaling EUR 157.3 million. Our gross profit increased by 23.4%. Adjusted operating profit increased by 10.7%, totaling EUR 6.7 million. Return on equity (ROE) during the first half year was 26.9% and return on investment totaled 16.0%.

In Finland, our revenue increased during the second quarter by 15.0% and we increased our gross profit by 19.4%. In Germany, our revenue increased by 51.0%, along with relative profitability. In Sweden, our revenue increased by 63.5% and operating profit was at previous year’s level.

We also performed well and according to plans in our purchases and in growing our car stock to prepare for the summer season. This was reflected in the inventory turnover.

Member of Group Management Team of Kamux Corporation and the company CFO, M.Sc. (econ) Marko Lehtonen started in his position on June 17, 2019.”
