2021 Full-Year Results and Annual Report

2021 Full-Year Results and Annual Report
In 2021, and for the fourth year in a row, I am pleased to report that Etex delivered significant growth. The company reached record results in revenue, REBITDA, REBITDA margin and net recurring profit, while the level of free cash flow generation reached new heights compared to 2019 – 2020 being an “abnormal year” due to the COVID-19 pandemic. These outstanding results can be attributed to a number of factors: a booming demand (especially in the home repair and renovation segment); increased margins thanks to cost-to-price monitoring and increased efficiency in manufacturing activities; and the positive impact of the savings initiatives launched in 2020. More importantly, the results tell us that people still dream about a better place to live, inspired by Etex.

Building sustainable houses within a few days to donate them to families affected by the floods: challenge met by Etex
To help several families affected by last summer’s floods in Belgium, five high-quality, sustainable houses built in two weeks are being donated by the Belgian company Etex.
