Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) increased by 1.1% to HRK 724.4 million, and the same increase was recorded for net profit, which amounted to HRK 345.9 million.
“Last year, Atlantic Grupa showed a high level of stability, despite economic disruptions caused
by the prolonged COVID-19 pandemic and difficulties with global supply chains, and we have
concluded our jubilee 30th year of operation with the historically highest revenues,” CEO Emil Tedeschi said in a comment on the results achieved.
All business segments recorded growth thanks to, among other things, significant marketing, and capital investments, a better epidemiological situation in all markets, and a significantly better tourist season in Croatia compared to 2020.
Among the group’s markets, Croatia led with a growth of 12.8% and was followed by Bosnia and Herzegovina with 8.8% growth and Serbia with 8.3% growth.
Own brands accounted for 62.6% of total sales, principal brands for 28.1%, and Farmacia for 9.3%.
Last year, Atlantic Grupa continued the planned investments, notably in technology in Atlantic Štark, new forms of Cedevita packaging, and the new Argeta factory near Varaždin. The value of this project exceeded €50 million and was expected to create up to 150 new jobs
