ASBIS publishes a financial forecast for 2020

PRESS RELEASE - 11 August 2020; Limassol, Cyprus, and Warsaw, Poland


ASBISc Enterprises Plc, a leading distributor of IT products on emerging markets of Europe, the Middle East and Africa, published today its financial forecast for 2020. According to the projections, the Group expects sales revenue in 2020 between USD 2 billion and USD 2.2 billion, and net profit after tax between USD 18 million and USD 20 million. This is a significant increase in results compared to those generated in 2019.

In 2019, the Group generated revenues of USD 1.9 billion and a net profit of USD 15.2 million.

Siarhei Kostevitch, CEO and Chairman of the Board of Directors ASBISc Enterprises Plc, commented: “The situation in the markets has already started to normalize, so after a very thorough analysis, we decided, like we do every year, to share with our investors the information they can expect from ASBIS this year in terms of financial results. Despite a challenging year, ASBIS is doing very well. Our great advantage is not only the significant market leading positions developed on our markets, but also a huge, 30-year experience, which can be capitalized into our success.”

Siarhei Kostevitch added: “According to the forecast our revenues will increase to a maximum of USD 2.2 billion in 2020. We assume a much higher increase in profitability, which is in line with our previous announcements stating that we will mostly concentrate on profitability this year. In 2019, we generated a net profit of USD 15.2 million; now we expect this to increase up to even USD 20 million. We expect to achieve this result if the pandemic does not escalate further and the overall economic situation in our markets will not deteriorate significantly. We all hope that the worst market restrictions are behind us, but if there are changes in the general situation that will prevent us from operating normally, we will inform the market accordingly.”

The significant assumptions of the forecasted results are the following:

  • no second wave of pandemic and another lockdown on our markets
  • a stable situation in key FSU markets and in key FSU currencies (not worse than in 2019)
  • no significant disturbance in the general economic environment
  • a similar YoY competitive environment and favorable relations with key suppliers
  • no significant decrease in sales of high margin in products and solutions (VAD) and Apple products
  • the smartphones segment will not deteriorate more than 15% in the markets the Group operates.
