Vita 34 closes 2023 with significantly better results than expected based on preliminary figures

Leipzig, 19 April 2024 – According to the final key financial figures for fiscal year 2023 available today, Vita 34 AG closed the year significantly better in terms of earnings than expected by the Management Board on the basis of the preliminary business figures from the end of January. Accordingly, earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) amounted to EUR 5.6 million. In the publication of 31 January, the Management Board had expected EBITDA of EUR 4.0 million. The deviation is mainly related to higher positive effects from the harmonization of accounting in accordance with IFRS 15 and due to a significantly more positive assessment of the risks from hyperinflation in Turkey in the course of the annual financial statements than anticipated in the preliminary business figures.
