“The 2021 business result will go down in our company’s history as the greatest success to date. Despite the initial limitations imposed by the corona pandemic, all of our brands ended the year with double-digit sales growth and a significantly better result than the pre-pandemic performance,” said Timo Schmidt-Eisenhart, CEO of the Calida group in a press release. .

The company’s online sales increased by 26.7%, with the group generating 80.2 million Swiss francs, or 27% of total online sales across all brands.

In 2021, the company achieved an adjusted operating profit of 24.3 million Swiss francs, up about 43% compared to the previous year. The EBIT margin of 8.1% was slightly above the forecast announced for 2021 and above the level of 6.8% of the previous year.

The company added that going forward, at least 50% of the normalized cash flow will be distributed to shareholders and the payout will increase steadily each year. The company’s board of directors will propose to increase the ordinary dividend by 25% to 1 Swiss franc per share at the general meeting on April 14, 2022.
