Highlights:
The first half of the year saw turnover growth of 14.3%, during which operating costs were impacted by items such as a loss of €1.2 million on large automotive simulators which are now in the process of being received, the transformation of the Savannah plant in the United States into a customer service center with the transfer of production to the Montreal unit, an increase in raw material costs whose impact was not immediate, as well as a strain on human resources issues which saw a reinforcement of the teams (+121 people on net).

Perspectives
SOGECLAIR confirms its forecast of a double-digit increase in activity for the whole of the 2022 financial year. Profitability will be up significantly in the second half of the year, thanks in particular to the improvement in the Americas and the effect of the passing on of material costs.
The setting up of ONE SOGECLAIR plan, the investments and reorganizations that have resulted from it, reinforce the perspectives which aim for a doubling of turnover by 2030 (compared with 2021) and an EBITDA profitability of over 12%.

Next announcement: turnover for Q3 2022, on November 02nd 2022 after closing of the Stock Market
