Peter Lauring, CEO, comments:
“2021 has been a year in which ECIT has developed in many areas, being listed on Euronext Growth in May, acquiring nine companies representing a proforma yearly revenue of appr. MNOK 500, merging of four subsidiaries** representing a combined revenue of close to BNOK 1.0 and with an increase of average ECIT ownership share in ECIT subsidiaries of more than 10%. 2021 financial performance should be viewed in the light of the impact Covid-19 has had on our customer base and in the light of general delivery issues regarding IT equipment. All in all, 2021 has been a good year for ECIT.”
**) Three of the four mergers have been completed, and one is awaiting final approval from the Norwegian Authority.
Adjustments to the preliminary unaudited figures above can occur. The annual report 2021 will be published 25th March 2022 with a webcast for investors and analysts to be held on the same day.
