reports / limited reviews
(Oslo, Norway, 15 February 2022) StrongPoint ASA (StrongPoint, OSE: STRO)
reported revenues of NOK 284 million in the fourth quarter of 2021, NOK 5
million lower than same quarter in 2020 (289). The EBITDA increased by NOK 0.2
million to NOK 20.1 million (19.9). StrongPoint today reconfirms the financial
ambition of NOK 2.5 billion in revenues and EBITDA margins of 13-15 % in 2025.
"We look back at a year where StrongPoint has significantly improved its
position in light of these market developments by landing several strategically
important wins, including Glovo customer win, AutoStore distributor rights,
Hörmann Logistik partnership and Halodi Robotics strategic partnership. In the
latter half of 2021 global component shortages have affected our ability to
deliver on already placed customer orders. Despite this, our team is doing a
tremendous job delivering a record year, and a Q4 that stands just shy of last
year's record high fourth quarter. Adjusting for currency effects, our revenues
actually grew 2%" says Jacob Tveraabak, Chief Executive Officer of StrongPoint.
StrongPoint reported revenues of NOK 284 million (289) in the fourth quarter of
2021 and an EBITDA of 20.1 million (19.9). The fourth quarter EBIT was NOK 12.8
million and EBT was NOK 10.9 million. The net profit after tax included
discontinued operations ended at NOK 9.2 million in the quarter. Cash flow from
operating activities was NOK 7 million.
"In September, we were selected as the first ever grocery specific distributor
for AutoStore. Following this partnership, we announced yet another important
partnership in November to support our customers with automated e-commerce
fulfilment with Hörmann Logistik. Hörmann Logistik's hands-on experience with
AutoStore and geographic distribution rights in the DACH region, is the perfect
match with StrongPoint's grocery retail and e-commerce experience and geographic
distribution rights for AutoStore in the Nordics and Baltics. Despite the
partnership being relatively new, we have already started working together on
concrete customer enquiries in the fourth quarter and are encouraged by the
opportunities going forward," Tveraabak continues.
In a company strategy update session following the presentation of the fourth
quarter 2021 financial results, StrongPoint will outline the progress already
made on its 2025 targets. It will outline how technology continues to be the key
to meeting the increased demand of grocery e-commerce and its impact on in-store
In 2021 StrongPoint updated its strategy to achieve its 2025 ambitions with a
T-shaped approach to geographical expansion and growth. This remains the case
and includes additional distribution rights of AutoStore micro-fulfillment and
humanoid robot from Halodi Robotics for the retail sector.
"I am excited and confident about the future. We have strong market fundamentals
in place, our own proprietary as well as partner solutions which are
world-class, and we are continuously improving our team resources to deliver on
the strategy and ambitions set forth. The depth and relevance with our grocery
customers and customer prospects in target markets is as strong as ever. And we
are just starting to get known and be respected by some of the largest grocery
retailers internationally. With all this, I continue to believe we have all the
reasons to be optimistic about achieving our 2025 strategic ambitions,"

2021 at 08:15 CET Tuesday 15 February 2022. This will be followed by an extended
company strategy update session. Both presentations will be online and can be
