AB Group, the largest distributor of IT solutions and consumer electronics in Poland and the CEE region, has concluded yet another successful quarter. Even in times of demanding market conditions, the Group generates stable turnover, solid profits and cash surplus, has an exemplary balance sheet structure and safe financial indicators. In the first quarter of FY2018/19 (July–September,) AB Group recorded revenues of EUR 437.1 million, which is a slight improvement compared to the results from the previous year. This enabled the Group to generate an EBITDA result of EUR 4.8 million and a net profit of EUR 2.7 million. Equity grew to more than EUR 173 million, exceeding the values seen on competitors’ balance sheets several times over. This manifestation of a responsible strategy led to a situation where, at the end of September this year, financial debt accounted for only 30% of equity, and the net debt to EBITDA ratio was at a safe 2.1x. Thanks to the exemplary quality of financial settlements, AB Group was also distinguished by financial institutions – the list of accolades includes the Golden Payer title awarded by Euler Hermes for the highest payment morality. High and stable liquidity ratios go hand in hand with the lowest SG&A ratio (only 2.7%) in the industry, which shows the efficiency of the distributor’s operations.
