ASBIS raises financial forecast for 2018

ASBISc Enterprises Plc, a leading distributor of IT products on emerging markets of Europe, the Middle East and Africa, raises its financial forecast for 2018 which was published in March.

According to the new forecast the Group expects sales revenue in 2018 between USD 2.1 billion and USD 2.2 billion, and net profit after tax between USD 11.5 million and USD 13.0 million.

The lower range of adjusted forecast is approx. 11% higher in relation to the revenues and 15% higher in relation to the net profit after tax compared to the upper range of the original forecast. The reason for the upward adjustment is the stronger than originally expected growth of business resulting in higher revenues and profits.

According to the financial forecast which was published in March, the Group expected sales revenue in 2018 between USD 1.8 billion and USD 1.9 billion, and net profit after tax between USD 9 million and USD 10 million.

Limassol, Cyprus, Warsaw, Poland;31 October 2018 -  Siarhei Kostevitch, CEO and Chairman of the Board of Directors ASBISc Enterprises Plc, commented: “We are very satisfied with the performance  generated during three quarters of 2018. Having focused on dynamic expansion of our presence in the markets where we are already present, we are now prepared for the fourth quarter which is the most intensive in our industry. The results expected in the last quarter allow us to increase of our financial forecast.”

The significant assumptions of the forecasted results are the following:

  • the situation in our major markets of Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Belarus and Slovakia will not deteriorate as compared to H2 2017
  • there will not be any major devaluations of the currencies of Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Ukraine and therefore it will not negatively affect demand on those markets
