Fram Skandinavien AB (publ) publishes interim report January - March 2022

Summary of the quarter

Despite the Lunar New Year holidays that occurred during the first quarter, the Group reports another strong quarter. The groups net sales increased by + 114% to SEK 20,722 thousand. The EBIT margin also improved significantly and amounted to -9% during the quarter, compared with -29% during the same period in 2021.

 

Both groups business areas grew steadily during the first quarter, with + 131% growth in Digital Brands and + 93% in IT Development. Growth in Digital Brands was primarily driven by continued strong organic growth at Carmudi. Growth in the IT Development business area was primarily driven by the acquisition of Exertus IT AB, but also by underlying organic growth.

 

Profitability at EBIT level in IT Development increased significantly, from a margin of 2% in the first quarter of 2021 to 16% in the first quarter of 2022. The EBIT margin in Digital Brands has also risen from -36% in Q1 2021 to -14% in Q1 2022.

 

As of March 31, 2022, the groups net asset value amounted to SEK 268 M (SEK 74 per share), which corresponds to a net asset value discount of approx. 50% compared to the closing price for FRAMB on the same date. The net asset value has been taken from in line with IFRS 13 - Fair Value Measurement and International Private Equity and Venture Capital Valuation Guidelines ("IPEV"), based on historically reported figures and confirmed market valuations.

As of last March, the groups cash amounted to approx. 19.4 MSEK.
