“Our business model showed its resilience in a turbulent global environment. Vimian continued to support veterinary professionals, bringing new innovative products and services to more clinics and animals across the globe. We achieved 62 per cent total revenue growth to EUR 281.3 million, with 8.7 per cent organic growth in our companion animal business. We welcomed companies with different financial profiles and invested for future growth, resulting in a margin of 26 per cent. Despite some volatility in cash conversion between the quarters, we ended the year with 57 per cent cash conversion”, says Dr. Fredrik Ullman, CEO of Vimian Group.
Revenue for the fourth quarter increased 55 per cent to EUR 75.5m (48.7), with organic growth of 3.5 per cent (6.7 per cent excluding Diagnostics). Adjusted EBITA reached EUR 18.0m (12.0), corresponding to an adjusted EBITA margin of 23.9 per cent (24.7).
“In the fourth quarter we focused on integrating acquired companies and advancing our organic initiatives, whilst staying cautious on cost. Revenue for the fourth quarter increased 55 per cent to EUR 75.5 million. Organic growth for the quarter was held back by Diagnostics and slower growth in southern Europe, while our North America operations continue to show strong growth. Entering 2023, we see continued solid demand for advanced veterinary care and had a positive start to the year”, says Dr. Fredrik Ullman, CEO of Vimian Group.
Last twelve months pro-forma revenues (including the full year impact of all acquisitions completed during the twelve months ending 31 December) reached EUR 297 million and adjusted EBITDA of EUR 85.7 million in 2022.
