Revenues in the first half of 2023 amounted to nearly USD 1.4 billion (close to PLN 6 billion),15% higher than those generated in the same period of last year (USD 1.2 billion). The Group's net profit amounted to USD 28.6 million (PLN 122.3 million), as compared to USD 27.1 million in the first half of 2022 (an increase of 6%). In Q2 2023, ASBIS generated USD 674.1 million (PLN 2.8 billion) in revenues and USD 11.2 million in net profit (PLN 47 million).

The Company's results are in line with the expectations and published financial forecast for 2023. After the first half of the year, the level of realization in revenues is at 44% and 35% at the level of net profit. The Group expects sales revenues in 2023 to be between USD 3.0 billion and USD 3.2 billion, while net profit after tax between USD 78 million and USD 82 million. This means that 2023 may be a record year in the Group's history, especially at the profit level. Historically, the best sales period in the IT sector is the fourth quarter of the calendar year. 


  • The largest ASBIS country in terms of sales was the very fast growing Kazakhstan, while the FSU region still maintained the largest share in the Group's revenues (more than 52% in the 1H 2023).
  • Poland has become a permanent member among the 10 countries with the highest revenues in the Group, taking the 8th place with revenues of USD 53.5 million in 1H2023 (an increase of 34,5% compared to the same period of last year).

    After the most profitable first quarter in the Company’s history, we ended the second quarter of 2023 very strongly, generating high, double-digit sales growth from month to month,” said Serhei Kostevitch, CEO of ASBIS Group. “Thanks to the consistent implementation of our strategy and the great determination of our teams, we managed to achieve a strong increase in revenues, despite the fact that historically the second quarter is the weakest quarter of a calendar year in the IT industry.”

    Serhei Kostevitch, added: “In the second quarter of 2023, we continued our strategy of investing in promising markets, such as the countries of Central Asia, the Caucasus and Africa, but also in Western Europe, building strong teams thanks to which we can dynamically increase our sales. We also continued to strengthen and develop our portfolio of IT products and services with technologically advanced solutions, including the robotics division - ASBIS Robotic Solutions (AROS)”.
