CEO Juha Kalliokoski:

“We saw very strong and very profitable growth in the first quarter. Kamux’s revenue increased by 25.4% and adjusted operating profit by 44.0%. We have worked decisively to implement our strategy, which focuses on accelerating growth and developing scalability.

We are still living in the midst of the corona pandemic, but the measures taken by the governments in Finland and Sweden did not have a considerable adverse effect on our business. In Germany, on the other hand, the entire first quarter was a very exceptional time due to the lock-down of society and the related measures taken. The unusual situation was also reflected on used car retail and Kamux’s profitability in Germany. In all countries, we were flexible in making swift substitute employee arrangements to ensure the health of both our personnel as well as our customers.

During the first quarter, we invested in car purchasing for the spring and summer seasons to ensure sufficient inventory levels, as we are aiming at strong growth in all operating countries.

We implemented our strategy in the first quarter by developing a the Kamux Huoleton (“Carefree”), a service based on monthly-fee driving. The Gothenburg showroom, opened in May, is a good example of a larger showroom in line with our strategy. The showroom and car processing center to be established in Oulu, which was announced in May, is a strategic property investment that enables long-term development of operations in accordance with our strategic focus areas.

Outlook for the year 2021

In 2021, Kamux expects its revenue to reach EUR 800-850 million and adjusted operating profit to increase from the previous year.

Financial targets for 20212023

The company’s medium-term financial targets are to increase revenue by over 20% annually, to increase adjusted operating profit annually, and to reach an adjusted operating profit margin of over 3.5% and a return on equity (ROE) of over 25%. Additionally, the company’s target is to distribute dividends of at least 25% of net profits. The Board of Directors of the Company estimates annually the balance between dividends to be distributed and funds to be used for Kamux’s growth and based on this assessment, makes a proposal on the amount of dividends to be distributed, which may for any single year differ significantly from the target level set in the dividend policy.
