Etex Full-Year Results and Annual Report 2018
In 2018, Etex’s top-line performance was solid, with a 4% like-for-like increase. Faced with manufacturing issues due to one-off manufacturing issues (mainly at Etex Roofing) and increased input costs (notably a negative energy price evolution), we were able to limit their impact, which explains our 2.8% like-for-like REBITDA decrease.
