These unaudited financial performance data include, starting from Q4 2022, the contribution coming from the acquisition of 100% of the Spanish Group S.C.P. Sintersa, which was completed in September 2022 (see press release of 13 September 2022).
Value of Production also benefited from robust organic growth of around 12%, thanks to strong new order wins in 2022 on the back of ALA scalable business model.
Net Financial Position (debt) closed at €28.8 million, compared to a (debt) position as at 31st December 2021 of € 5 million, reflecting the €35 million bank loan received on 30th September 2022 to finance the acquisition of SCP Sintersa.

Given the voluntary nature of this communication, the Company will reiterate it on an annual basis.
