Etex resists to a challenging market context and delivers strong and improving 2023 results, preparing for further growth
Even more so than 2022, 2023 was a challenging year marked by volatility, uncertainty, and severe drops in demand across the world as we observed the continued impacts of increased energy prices and interest rates. Combined with tougher financing possibilities by banks, all these circumstances meant that both renovation and new construction levels dropped globally. Devaluation of some foreign currencies and hyperinflation accounting also had significant effects on our results. Despite all these challenges, I am extremely proud to share that Etex navigated these difficult waters very well and delivered yet again another record year. This includes our highest ever revenue and REBITDA, among others.
