Outlook for 2022
Incap estimates that its revenue, operating profit (EBIT) and adjusted operating profit (EBIT) for 2022 will be clearly higher than in 2021. The increase in the revenue and operating profit estimate is driven by improved visibility related to the customers' forecasts and the company's own assessments of the business development.
The estimates are based on increased visibility of Incap’s customers’ forecasts and the company’s own assessments of the business development. The estimates are given provided that unexpected events impacting Incap’s business environment do not occur, for example, in the availability of components.
Previously Incap estimated that its revenue, operating profit (EBIT) and adjusted operating profit (EBIT) for 2022 will be higher than in 2021.
Otto Pukk, President and CEO of Incap Corporation:
“During the first six months of 2022 the war in Ukraine and lock-downs in China continued to affect global business environment and we have not seen the full effects of them yet. The rising general inflation and cost of manufacturing as well as constrained component availability continued. Nevertheless, we performed well with improved revenue and profitability. I am grateful to our team who has worked very hard to secure materials and keep Incap’s customer commitments.
The second quarter was the best one in Incap’s history, in terms of revenue and operating profit. Revenue continued to grow both year-on-year and above the first quarter of 2022 supported by strong demand for electronics and an all-time-high order book. We are very happy to see all our units growing.
Our profitability improved due to the current product mix and tremendous work of our employees in sourcing materials in a tough market. With continued component availability constraints and supply chain challenges, we keep our inventories on a high level to support future growth. Increasing salary, energy and raw material costs mean higher prices of electronics to end customers.
To respond to the growing market demand, we have been investing in our factories in India and Europe. The third factory project in India is scheduled for completion by the end of the year and is progressing according to plan. In Europe, Incap Estonia is upgrading its two existing SMT production lines and adding a third to its factory in Kuressaare. The new production lines will be opened in the third quarter this year. Incap Slovakia is also investing in new technology by replacing one of the current SMT lines and by adding a new selective soldering machine to the factory.
Consolidation in the EMS market continues. We remain in a solid financial position and are well placed to actively pursue growth through M&A. We continue to evaluate companies with good profitability, a strong cultural fit and with potential for geographical expansion.
As we have kicked off the second half of 2022, we have updated our outlook and estimate now that our revenue, operating profit (EBIT) and adjusted operating profit (EBIT) for 2022 will be clearly higher than in 2021.”
