EGGER Group: Satisfactory company performance at the half-year mark

The EGGER Group, headquartered in St. Johann in Tirol (AT), closed the first half of its 2022/2023 financial year (reporting date 31 October 2022) with consolidated sales of EUR 2.26 billion (+14.0% as compared to the previous year). This increase in sales is primarily due to the sharp rise in costs for raw materials, energy and logistics, which led to higher sales prices. The many uncertainties and crises and their effects on the energy and raw material markets, as well as massive inflation and the resulting loss of purchasing power, have caused a noticeable decline in demand. The outlook for the second half of the year is therefore reserved.
