ViroGates announces CE-IVD approval for suPARnostic® TurbiLatex on the Roche Diagnostics cobas® Pure and Pro instrument platforms

COMPANY ANNOUNCEMENT - No. 02-2023 – Inside Information - 6 February 2023

BIRKERØD, DENMARK – ViroGates A/S, a medical technology company developing blood tests for better triaging in hospitals to improve patient care and reduce healthcare costs, today announces that it has completed the development and regulatory approval (CE-IVD in Europe) of its suPARnostic® TurbiLatex product for the Roche instrument series cobas® Pure and cobas® Pro. The instruments are the two most recent from the global market leader Roche Diagnostics.

The systems are different in size and have throughput ranges of approximately 500 and 1000 per hour respectively. They are supposed to cover immunochemistry analysis in the mid- to large-volume segments for Roche Diagnostics. Both systems are fully automated requiring no manual handling from the blood sampling until results are processed and are already being installed in various hospitals.

The approval of suPARnostic® TurbiLatex for the Roche Pure® and Pro® systems complements the previous approvals for the other Roche systems cobas® 6000 and 8000 series, as well as product series from other instrument providers such as Abbott, Siemens Healthineers and Beckman Coulter.

The suPARnostic® TurbiLatex product is a pivotal element in ViroGates’ European expansion strategy, focusing on the acute care market.

CEO Jakob Knudsen says in a comment: ”We are excited to add another two instrument platforms to our approvals for our flagship product series suPARnostic® TurbiLatex. We are consistently working to stay at the forefront with respect to instrument platforms so hospital customers can run our suPARnostic® analysis irrespective of the instrument line they have chosen. The cobas® Pure and Pro approvals are an excellent example of this as they have been launched recently and we have already managed to validate our products for both instruments.”

About ViroGates

About suPAR and suPARnostic®

suPAR is the biomarker detected by ViroGates’ suPARnostic® products and is a protein in plasma, measurable in every human being. suPAR is considered a general risk status biomarker indicating disease presence, disease severity and progression, organ damage and mortality risk across disease areas such as cardiovascular diseases, kidney diseases, type 2 diabetes, cancer, etc. Strong scientific evidence from more than 850 clinical trials and studies show that the higher the level of suPAR, the worse the prognosis for the patient.

The suPARnostic® products can be used to support healthcare professionals in making clinical decisions on hospitalization or discharge of acute care patients. The increasing demands on health systems globally and tightening healthcare budgets necessitate efficiency improvements and innovative solutions in hospitals. The use of suPAR in clinical routine in emergency departments can improve patient care and reduce healthcare costs by increasing the number of discharges by up to 34% and reducing the average hospital length-of-stay by up to 6% without affecting mortality. suPARnostic® TurbiLatex is currently available on Roche Diagnostics’ cobas® instruments, Siemens Healthineers ADVIA® XPT and Atellica® instruments, the Abbott Labs Architect™ and Alinity™ instruments and the Beckmann Coulter AU 5800 instrument. ViroGates works with partners to develop solutions for other platforms.

Prospects about the future reflect ViroGates' current expectations for future events and results. The statements are by nature inherent in risks, uncertainties and other matters that are difficult to predict or out of control.

Niiden mukaisesti yhtiö tavoittelee 100 miljoonan euron jatkuvien tuottojen liikevaihdon tasoa (ARR) vuoteen 2030 mennessä sekä markkinan laajentamista useisiin Euroopan maihin. Tämän tavoitteen vauhdittamiseksi yhtiö on nimittänyt KTM Pekka Pulkkisen Admicomin johtoryhmän jäseneksi ja vastaamaan konsernin myynnin ja markkinoinnin johtamisesta kasvujohtajan tehtävässä.

Pekka Pulkkinen on aiemmin toiminut erilaisissa myynti- ja liiketoimintajohdon tehtävissä useissa suomalaisissa sekä kansainvälisissä ohjelmisto- ja palveluyhtiöissä. Admicomille Pulkkinen siirtyy globaalista, rakennusohjelmistoalan Nemetschek-konserniin kuuluvasta Solibri Oy:stä. Aiemmassa tehtävässään Pulkkinen on kaupallisena johtajana vastannut yhtiön ohjelmistotuotteiden maailmanlaajuisesta myynnistä ja asiakassuhteiden ylläpidosta. Admicomin johtoryhmässä Pulkkinen aloittaa 2.5.2023 ja vastaa tehtävässään toimitusjohtaja Petri Kairiselle.

Hyvänä ihmisjohtajana hän tulee varmasti tuomaan uutta virtaa myyntitiimeihimme.” 

Pekka Pulkkinen toteaa: ”Rakennusalan digitalisaatio on viime vuosina ottanut merkittäviä edistysaskeleita. Eurooppaa uhkaavan taantuman kynnyksellä rakentamisen arvoketjun yritykset turvautuvat digitaalisuuden tuomiin hyötyihin, erityisesti lisätäkseen tuottavuuttaan sekä mahdollistaakseen rakennushankkeiden suunnittelun uudella tasolla. Alan pidemmän aikavälin tavoitteissa on mahdollistaa aidosti digitaaliset toimintamallit integroiduin järjestelmin.

Admicomilla on vankka asema suomalaisen rakennusteollisuuden tehostajana, ja on kunnia päästä viemään sitä tulevaisuudessa myös maailmalle. Suomalaisesta rakennusosaamisesta ja -teknologiasta ollaan erittäin kiinnostuneita Euroopassa. ”

Alefarm Brewing udvider sin tilstedeværelse på det italienske marked

Som følge af en optimeret go-to-market-strategi, som blandt andet indeholder en revideret prisstruktur, er det nu blevet muligt at udvide distributionen af øl fra Alefarm Brewing A/S i Italien, hvor især Lazio-regionen - med hovedstaden Rom som største by - forventes at spille en nøglerolle fremadrettet.

Investornyhed nr. 32 Alefarm Brewing udvider sin tilstedeværelse på det italienske marked

Alefarm Brewing A/S ("ALEFRM" eller "Selskabet") er et innovativt dansk bryggeri, som producerer unikke øl af høj kvalitet til forbrugere og distributører på verdensplan. Selskabet kan i dag offentliggøre udvidelsen af sin tilstedeværelse på det italienske marked.

Selskabet etablerede allerede i 2020 et samarbejde med en førende italiensk distributør, i hvilken forbindelse friske øl både i dåser og fustager - og navnlig varianterne IPA og DIPA - blev distribueret til barer, caféer og restauranter primært i regionerne Lombardiet og Piemonte.

Som følge af Selskabets optimerede go-to-market-strategi, som blandt andet indeholder en revideret prisstruktur, er det nu blevet muligt for denne italienske distributør at udvide distributionen af Selskabets øl, således at den samlede produktportefølje gøres tilgængelig for kunder også i det centrale Italien.

Distributionen udvides specifikt til regionerne Lazio, Marche, Toscana og Umbrien, hvor især Lazio-regionen - med hovedstaden Rom som største by - forventes at spille en nøglerolle for den øgede afsætning. Her er det allerede nu muligt for de italienske forbrugere at købe og nyde friske øl fra Alefarm Brewing på en række udvalgte barer, caféer og restauranter.

Denne udvikling flugter med nylige markedsundersøgelser, som viser en positiv vækst i forbruget af øl på det italienske marked på 17% i perioden 2011 til 20211. Dermed udgør Italien et marked, som er hensigtsmæssigt for Selskabet løbende at udvide sin tilstedeværelse i.

Stifter og CEO, Kasper Tidemann, udtaler i den forbindelse:

"Det løbende samarbejde med vores distributører er afgørende for vores fortsatte succes inden for eksport. Det er et samarbejde, som kræver opmærksomhed, hensyn til lokale forhold, indsigt i forbrugsmønstre samt en målrettet indsats hvad angår markedsføring. Vi er i den forbindelse lykkedes med at implementere vores optimerede go-to-market-strategi på det italienske marked, hvorfor vi nu kan udvide vores tilstedeværelse betydeligt."

Rettelse: Scandinavian Medical Solutions sælger Siemens Aera 1.5 Tesla MRI-scanner til USA: Kvalitet og stærkt partnerskab vægtes højt af trofast kunde

Investornyhed nr. 24 – 2023 | 03-02-2023

RETTELSE: Korrektion i investornyhed vedrørende intervallet af ordrestørrelse. (DKK 2,0 mio. til under DKK 5,0 mio. er ændret til DKK 2,0 til under DKK 3,5 mio.)

Scandinavian Medical Solutions A/S (eller ’Selskabet’) har netop leveret en Siemens Aera 1.5 Tesla MRI-scanner til loyal amerikansk kunde og samarbejdspartner.

Siemens Aera MRI-scanneren var Siemens’ første 70 cm flagskibsmodel. Scanneren har zero boil-off teknologi, der sikrer at magneten ikke skal bruge helium under normal drift, hvilket minimerer helium-forbruget. Scanneren er af høj kvalitet, og den er kendt for sin brede gantryåbning og innovative teknologi, der gør den særdeles attraktiv på markedet for brug billeddiagnostisk udstyr.

Køber af systemet er en loyal samarbejdspartner af Scandinavian Medical Solutions, som gennem årene har købt en lang række systemer af Selskabet. Adm. Direktør i Scandinavian Medical Solutions, Jens Krohn udtaler: ”Vi dyrker i stor grad de stærke samarbejder. Vi er altid opdaterede omkring vores kunders specifikke behov, hvilket betyder at vi i langt større grad er i stand til at imødekomme deres efterspørgsel. Det er derfor også glædeligt, at vi endnu engang kan hjælpe denne specifikke samarbejdspartner med at finde det helt rigtige system.”

Salget udgør et beløb større end DKK 2,0 mio. og offentliggøres derfor i henhold til Selskabets informations – og kommunikationspolitik. Ordren ligger inden for intervallet DKK 2,0 mio. til under DKK 3,5 mio.

Levering og risikoovergang af udstyret er sket i uge 5, 2023. Ordren ændrer ikke på tidligere udmeldt guidance for omsætning og EBITDA i regnskabsåret 2022/2023.

BactiQuant introducerer avancerede testrobotter til overvågning af vandkvalitet i det amerikanske industrimarked

BactiQuant skal præsentere vores avancerede testrobot på den største konference for materialer i USA som afholdes i Denver, Colorado - arrangeret af "Association for Materials Protection and Performance", AMPP.

BactiQuant har fået godkendt en artikel om vores testrobotter som vi har indsendt til den kommende AMPP konference i Denver i marts 2023. BactiQuants mobile lab teknologi har tidligere modtaget en "Innovation of the Year Award" i 2017 på verdens største korrosions konference afholdt i New Orleans.

Nu har vi fået muligheden for at levere en podiepræsentation af vores nye automatiserede testrobot til industrien under temaet: Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion (MIC). Et studie har tidligere vist at korrosion koster amerikansk industri milliarder af dollars hvert år. Alene i Olie & Gas industrien opgøres det samlede tab til 13 millarder dollars om året, heraf estimeres det at korrosion som kan tilskrives mikrobiel aktivitet, udgør 2 millarder dollars. Korrosion på verdensplan er således en kæmpeudfordring og der er stor efterspørgsel på teknologier der kan anvendes til korrosionsbekæmpelse.

Bactiquant vil dels være til stede med vores podie præsentation som bliver publiceret af AMPP on-line og dels med en stand på konferencen hvor vi får mulighed for at møde potentielle amerikanske industrikunder. Udover podiepræsentationen har vores største teknologivirksomhedskunde i USA, SLB, fået godkendt en artikel om anvendelsen af BactiQuants teknologi til reduktion af biocidforbruget i Olie og Gas produktion.

CEO Morten Miller udtaler: ”Vi er stolte af at det er lykkedes, i samarbejde med SLB, at komme på podiet på en af verdens største konferencer for materialer og korrosionsbeskyttelse. Deltagelsen på konferencer er en del af BactiQuants ”go to market” strategi for det store amerikanske marked. På Denver konferencen får vi mulighed for at placere os meget stærkt i feltet indenfor teknologier som kan anvendes til dels, at optimere og effektivisere overvågningen af mikrobiel aktivitet i komplekse vandsystemer, og dels styrke den grønne dagsorden i amerikanske industrivirksomheder ved at bidrage til at reducere forbruget af biocider”.

Alefarm Brewing lancerer ny øl udviklet i samarbejde med Michael Flarup

Alefarm Brewing A/S har i samarbejde med den internationalt anerkendte danske designer og spiludvikler, Michael Flarup, udviklet en eksklusiv koncept-øl, som tager sit udgangspunkt i duften og smagen af kreativitet.

Investornyhed nr. 31 Alefarm Brewing lancerer ny øl udviklet i samarbejde med Michael Flarup

Alefarm Brewing A/S ("ALEFRM" eller "Selskabet") er et innovativt dansk bryggeri, som producerer unikke øl af høj kvalitet til forbrugere og distributører på verdensplan. Selskabet kan i dag offentliggøre lanceringen af en eksklusiv øl, som er udviklet i samarbejde med den internationalt anerkendte danske designer og spiludvikler, Michael Flarup.

Michael Flarup har designet og udviklet apps, spil og grafiske projekter, som er blevet anvendt og oplevet af millioner af mennesker verden over. Hans grafiske designs - og herunder specifikt hans app-ikoner til iOS og Android - er endda blevet hyppigt anvendt som visuelt bagtæppe hos den amerikanske tech-gigant, Apple, mens topchefer som fx Tim Cook har præsenteret nye produkter.

Selskabets samarbejde med Michael Flarup har bestået af en konceptualisering af begrebet kreativitet, der fungerer som fællesnævner både for Michael Flarups arbejde samt Selskabets fokus på løbende at udvikle og forfine sin produktportefølje. Målsætningen har været at indfange duften og smagen af kreativitet i en koncept-øl, som er navngivet Creativity Juice, og som byder på rigelige mængder humle og masser af mundfylde.

Creativity Juice vil blive lanceret i Selskabets tap room på bryggeriet fredag d. 17. februar kl. 14:00. Her vil det være muligt at købe øllen både i dåser og på fad. Både Michael Flarup samt Selskabets direktion vil være til stede for at præsentere denne øl samt den ledsagende grafik, som figurerer på forsiden af den tilhørende etiket.

Da der er tale om et eksklusivt samarbejde, så vil Creativity Juice kun være tilgængelig i en stærkt begrænset mængde. Derfor tilskyndes aktionærer at deltage i arrangementet på bryggeriet, såfremt de ønsker at opleve resultatet af et samarbejde, som spænder på tværs af to forskellige brancher, og som bindes sammen med kreativitet som kardinalpunkt.

Stifter og CEO, Kasper Tidemann, udtaler i den forbindelse:

"Nyskabelse er afgørende for vores evne til at fastholde relevans på markederne. I den forbindelse er vi yderst beærede over at have haft mulighed for at samarbejde med den verdensberømte designer, Michael Flarup, omkring udviklingen af Creativity Juice. Selvom denne øl kun vil blive frigivet i en stærk begrænset mængde, så vil de fælles læringer, som er gjort via samarbejdet som helhed, blive båret videre i vores produktudvikling. Vi glæder os meget over på denne måde at bygge bro mellem forskellige brancher til gavn for det gode - og nyskabende - øl."

S-Bank Plc: Financial statements bulletin 1 January–31 December 2022

S-Bank Plc, Stock exchange release, 3 February 2023 at 9.00 am 

The number one bank for more people – best result in history 

  • Lending increased to EUR 6.7 billion (6.1)*  

  • Assets under management decreased to EUR 5.9 billion (7.7)  

  • Operating profit increased to EUR 44.7 million (24.8) 

  • The capital adequacy ratio was 16.3 per cent (16.3) 

The S-Bank Group’s operating profit was EUR 44.7 million (24.8) increasing 80.3 per cent on the previous year. The improvement in performance was driven by an 18.6 per cent increase in total income and, in particular, a stronger increase in net interest income towards the end of the year. The improved cost-to-income ratio was 0.74 (0.78), and impairment losses decreased compared to the previous year.   

* In the above, figures for the corresponding period of 2021 are used in the result comparisons.  

Outlook for 2023  

We expect operating profit for the whole year to increase by more than 50 per cent (44.7) on the previous year’s level. The rise in interest rates has a positive impact on the bank’s performance. However, the operating environment is very uncertain.  

Dividend  

S-Bank’s Board of Directors proposes a dividend of EUR 0.75 per share. 

Comments by Hanna Porkka, Interim CEO 

The S-Bank Group achieved the best result in its history. The rise in interest rates had an impact on the net interest income particularly in the second half of the year. In the final quarter of the year, the operating profit was a record EUR 20.6 million.  

At the end of the year, S-Bank had around 592 000 active customers, as opposed to around 532 000 at the end of 2021. Our strategic goal is to achieve one million active customers. The total euro amount of the purchases made with the S-Etukortti Visa card in 2022 grew by 19.8 per cent on the amount for the previous year. The number of card purchases also increased significantly and was 20.0 per cent higher than a year earlier. At the end of 2022, purchases made with S-Bank cards accounted for 24.1 per cent (23.2) of all Bonus purchases made in S-Group stores.   

Despite the challenging market conditions, we continued to grow strongly in housing loans and our housing loan volume growth exceeded market growth almost tenfold. Year-on-year, our lending grew by 10.0 per cent and our deposit portfolio by 4.9 per cent. The number of unit holders in our funds increased by around 21 000 year-on-year to approximately 361 000, and our funds attracted the most net subscriptions in the Finnish market. However, total assets under management declined under the pressure of the general market downturn and the termination of a significant portfolio management contract outsourced to S-Bank. Assets under management were EUR 5.9 billion (7.7) at the end of the year.   

The positive performance of 2022 provides a solid foundation on which to start building 2023. In fact, the mood at the beginning of the new year has been expectant but confident at S-Bank.  

The economic outlook is muted and uncertain, and many people are having to rethink their finances amid rising costs and interest rates. I believe that our product range, our service concept and our ambition to make a slightly more affluent tomorrow possible for everyone will appeal to many this year. 

This year, in line with our strategy, we will focus on offering superior ease and benefits, especially to our household customers. We are a full-service bank for the co-op members of S-Group cooperative stores and we offer them an account, a card, online banking and a mobile app free-of-charge.  

For the bank’s shareholders, SOK and the S Group’s regional cooperative stores, we want to be an attractive investment also in 2023. At the same time, we will make sure that the Bank’s bonds are appealing to institutional investors. 

January–December 2022 

S-Bank Group's operating profit was EUR 44.7 million (24.8), an increase of 80.3 per cent on the previous year. The profit for the period after taxes was EUR 35.8 million (19.6). Return on equity increased to 6.9 per cent (3.9).   

The operating profit from Banking was EUR 61.8 million (EUR 36.2 million). The operating profit from Wealth Management was EUR 1.7 million (EUR 5.0 million).  

During the review period, total income developed positively. Total income amounted to EUR 221.8 million (187.0), a growth of 18.6 per cent. Net interest income grew by 34.7 per cent, totalling EUR 121.7 million (90.3). Net fee and commission income increased by 7.9 per cent to EUR 87.2 million (80.8). Other operating income decreased to EUR 10.4 million (12.7). 

Operating expenses totalled EUR 165.1 million (146.5) during the review period. This is 12.7 per cent more year-on-year, mainly due to increases in personnel expenses, IT- and development costs as well as regulatory fees. 

Expected and final credit losses of EUR 18.5 million (21.4) were recognised in the consolidated income statement during the review period. Reversals, or recovered credit losses, amounted to EUR 6.6 million (5.7). Consequently, the total net effect on profit of expected and final credit losses was EUR 12.0 million (15.7). 

Total deposits continued to grow and were EUR 7 925.6 million (7 554.9) at the end of the review period. During the past 12 months, total deposits grew by 4.9 per cent. Household customers’ deposit portfolio grew 8.3 per cent on the previous year and was EUR 7 078.8 million. Corporate customers’ deposit portfolio contracted 16.7 per cent on the previous year and was EUR 846.8 million.  

Lending growth continued to be strong. At the end of the review period, the loan portfolio totalled EUR 6 695.3 million (6 086.0). During the past 12 months, the loan portfolio grew by 10.0 per cent. The household loan portfolio grew by 9.9 per cent on the previous year and was EUR 5 588.9 million, while the corporate loan portfolio grew 10.4 per cent on the previous year and was EUR 1 106.3 million.   

According to the latest available information, the increase in housing loan volume for the financial institutions operating in Finland was 1.0 per cent for the preceding 12-month period in November. S-Bank's housing loan volume grew by 9.5 per cent (almost ten times the market growth) in the same period. In 2022, the number of housing loan applications decreased on the previous year.   

At the end of the review period, the bank’s debt securities totalled EUR 696.7 million (EUR 1 149.1 million at the end of 2021). S-Bank has increased the share of central bank deposits in its liquidity portfolio, which has influenced the development. 

At the end of the review period, S-Bank’s equity was EUR 524.2 million, compared with EUR 509.3 million at the end of 2021. The equity was affected by the value of the fair value reserve, which has decreased by EUR 21.1 million since the end of 2021. The rapid rise in interest rates has affected that development. During the second half of the year, however, the decrease in the fair value reserve has been more moderate. The equity ratio was 5.9 per cent (6.0).   

Assets under management were EUR 5 852.5 million (7 697.1) at the end of the review period. Assets under management decreased under the pressure of the general market decline and the termination of a significant portfolio management contract outsourced to S-Bank. Of assets under management, fund capital accounted for EUR 3 925.8 million (3 925.3), and wealth management capital accounted for EUR 1 926.7 million (3 771.8). In addition, S-Bank Properties Ltd managed EUR 347.5 million in customer assets, consisting of real estate and joint ventures (442.4). The decrease was caused by a real estate that was sold during the third quarter. Net subscriptions to S-Bank funds totalled EUR 255.5 million in 2022 (317.1). The development of net subscriptions to the S-Bank funds was strongest out of all fund management companies.

CEO Esa Korkeela’s comment

“Consti's solid development continued during the last quarter of the year. Our net sales for October-December increased by 12.9 percent and amounted to 93.3 (82.6) million euro. Our net sales for the reporting period 2022 increased by 5.7 percent and amounted to 305.2 (288.8) million euro. 75.1 (70.0) percent of our net sales were generated in the Greater Helsinki area.

Our operating result for October-December was 4.8 (3.0) million euro, which is 5.2 (3.6) percent of our net sales. The last quarter advanced according to our expectations, and our projects predominantly progressed as planned. Our profitability improved, although cost inflation had a negative impact on our result through both increased construction costs and increased indirect costs. Our operating profit for the reporting period doubled and was 11.4 (5.7) million euros, which is 3.7 (2.0) percent of our net sales. Our adjusted operating result for the reporting period before items affecting comparability was 11.4 (9.5) million euros, which is 3.7 (3.3) percent of net sales.

Thanks to improved profitability and released working capital, our free cash flow for October-December improved compared to the previous year and was 10.4 (6.1) million euro. With the positive cash flow development, our balance sheet and liquidity positions strengthened during the last quarter. Our January-December free cash flow improved significantly compared to the previous year and was 18.0 (5.5) million euro, which means a cash conversion ratio of 120.6 (59.3) percent.

During October-December, our order intake amounted to 109.1 (66.9) million euro, which means an increase of 63.1 percent compared to the comparison period. The most significant orders of the last quarter were the renovation of Taivallahti elementary school, the renovation and new construction project of Oulunkylä elementary school and kindergarten, and the alliance project for the implementation phase of the new ward building of Jorvi Hospital, where Consti will carry out the HVAC and sprinkler work. Our order intake for January-December increased by 3.1 percent year-on-year and amounted to 283.7 (275.1) million euro. Thanks to the strong order intake, our order backlog at the end of the reporting period increased by 12.8 percent compared to the comparison period and was 246.7 (218.6) million euro.

We made progress in our strategic projects in accordance with our plans. Our long-term work to improve profitability continued. We achieved growth in the segments we wanted among renovation, building technology as well as in Service business. The expansion of our operations into new construction continued both in the Greater Helsinki area and regionally. During the year, we also strengthened our abilities in, for example, project development, design management and energy efficiency. In corporate social responsibility, our work progressed in accordance with our chosen responsibility themes for the strategy period. As part of environmentally friendly services, we developed, among other things, the Consti OPTIMI multi-energy system, which can be used to even halve the energy consumption of properties.

Based on our current market view, we believe that the demand for renovation and building technology services will remain reasonably good in 2023. According to forecasts, renovation will be the only area of construction that will grow in 2023. Growth is expected from both residential renovation and other renovation. The forecasts reflect the needs-oriented nature of renovation. However, strong inflation and the rapid rise of both energy costs and the price of financing may postpone construction projects in the short term. Uncertainty in the outlook for construction is also brought about by the rise in the prices and availability of building materials and products, intensified by the war in Ukraine.

Our strong order backlog, the progress of our strategic projects, and our steadily improved performance put us in a good position to continue our positive and solid development in 2023.”

 

Operating environment

In recent years, the Finnish house building market has been divided almost equally between new construction and renovation.

In 2022, new construction grew more than renovation. New construction growth was driven by residential construction. Estimates of the growth of residential new construction vary from the Confederation of Finnish Construction Industries RT's seven percent to Euroconstruct's around ten percent. RT estimates that non-residential new construction increased by 2.5 percent, while Euroconstruct estimates that it increased 3.5 percent.

Renovation grew an estimated 0.8–1.5 percent in 2022 and were worth approximately 14 billion euro.

In 2023, both residential construction and non-residential construction are predicted to decrease clearly. Renovation, on the other hand, will continue to grow steadily according to estimations.

Renovation has grown relatively steadily for the last 20 years. Growth is projected to remain steady for years to come, as renovation is more need-based and less sensitive to economic cycles than new construction.

Nearly two-thirds of renovation is conducted in residential buildings, and more than half of this volume is estimated to be professional renovation. Just over one third of all renovation is conducted in non-residential buildings. In 2022, renovation of non-residential buildings grew more than renovation of residential buildings.

In the renovation of residential buildings, the emphasis is still on building technology, which accounts for approximately 40 percent of the value of renovation. It has been estimated that building technology renovation will increase more strongly than other renovation also in the next few years. The growth of building technology renovation is maintained by the large number of residential buildings that have reached the age where they require pipeline renovation.

The higher prices of heating and the green transition will also bring growth to the building technology market. Until now, energy efficiency has been improved largely in connection with other renovation, but rapidly rising energy prices have made energy renovation profitable as independent projects as well. Energy efficiency and a building’s ability to withstand increasing extreme weather conditions are improved with building technology and construction solutions such as facade renovation. Renovation plays a central role in reducing the carbon footprint of the built environment, as the number of new buildings is growing by only about one per cent per year.

In the short term, however, building technology companies’ expectations for the future have darkened. Future prospects are overshadowed by uncertainty regarding the prices and availability of supplies and equipment, and the price of energy, caused by the war in Ukraine. According to a survey conducted by Statistics Finland, renovation prices had risen by more than ten percent in the fall of 2022 from the previous year. The prices for pipeline and roof renovation had risen the most.

In addition to building technology renovation, many housing companies have a growing need for facade renovation, which they have postponed due to financial reasons, to make way for pipeline renovation. Approximately one fifth of all renovation projects are maintenance and repair projects.

In the building technology market, Consti also operates in all other areas of new construction apart from housing construction. In new construction, the construction of business premises started to pick up after the COVID-19 pandemic at the end of 2022. The construction of hospital and teaching facilities also increased clearly.

According to forecasts, renovation will be the only area of construction that will grow in 2023. Growth is expected from both residential renovation and other renovation. 

In 2023, the new construction of residential buildings is predicted to decrease by approximately 10–13 percent, and the new construction of non-residential buildings by approximately 1–2 percent. However, the ongoing hospital and school projects keep service construction at a good level. There is more uncertainty associated with the growth of commercial and office construction.

It is expected that renovation will continue on a growth path of around one per cent also in 2023. Growth is expected from the renovation of both residential and non-residential buildings.

The age of Finland’s building stock is a primary driver of the need for renovation. Housing construction was at its peak in the 1970s, and the building technology and structures of that time now require thorough renovation. Along with the need for building technology renovation, expectations for living comfort have risen. In addition, the need for renovation in business premises is also driven by changes in space needs.

However, strong inflation and the rapid rise of both energy costs and the price of financing may postpone renovations in the short term, especially renovations commissioned by housing companies. General meetings held in housing companies during the spring will, to a large extent, determine their readiness for renovation investments. Uncertainty in the outlook for construction is also brought about by the rise in the prices and availability of building materials and products, intensified by the war in Ukraine.

In addition to the age of the building stock, renovation needs are increased by many phenomena named as megatrends, such as urbanisation, the aging of the population, changes in working methods, the growth of e-commerce and climate change. Both new construction and renovation remain heavily concentrated in growth centres.

 

Outlook for 2023

In 2023, Finland's house construction volume is estimated to decrease by approximately 3.7 percent from the previous year. New construction is predicted to decrease by about 7.2 percent, but it is expected that renovation will continue on a growth path of around one per cent also in 2023. Growth is expected from both residential renovation and other renovation. According to the current market outlook, the demand for renovation and building technology services will remain reasonably good in 2023. The forecasts reflect the needs-oriented nature of renovation. However, strong inflation and the rapid rise of both energy costs and the price of financing may postpone construction projects in the short term. Uncertainty in the outlook for construction is also brought about by the rise in the prices and availability of building materials and products, intensified by the war in Ukraine as well as the potential labour disputes.

Consti's strong order backlog, the progress of strategic projects, and steadily improved performance put the company in a good position to continue positive and solid development in 2023.

The Company estimates that its operating result for 2023 will be in the range of EUR 9.5–13.5 million.
