TORCÉ, France--()--Regulatory News:

Groupe OKwind (FR0013439627 - ALOKW) (Paris:ALOKW), which is specialized in the design, manufacture and sale of intelligent energy generation and management systems dedicated to self-consumption, announces its consolidated 2022 results and its revenues for the first quarter of 2023, as approved by the Board of Directors on April 17, 2023. It should be noted that the audit procedures have been completed and the Audit Report for the certification is being issued.

Louis MAURICE, Founder and Chairman of Groupe OKwind, said: "This release is in line with the previous ones as Groupe OKwind remains on track with the strategic plan announced at the time of its IPO. Our commercial and financial performance are even better than our forecasts, and we should reach at least €85 million in revenues by the end of 2023. We are benefiting from both a favorable market context and structural demand from our customers, who are looking for sustainable solutions to reduce their energy bills, while minimizing their environmental impact. At the same time, we are further industrializing our processes to absorb the increase in production volumes in a supply context much less constrained than it was in 2022. Finally, we are reaping the first results of our diversification policy in new market segments such as the water and sanitation and agribusiness markets, both of which feature promising growth perspectives. We are therefore well positioned to achieve our financial objectives by 2026".

As announced at the time of the publication of the annual revenues, Groupe OKwind has recorded strong growth in its three business segments (farms, local authorities/industrial sites and individuals).

Overall, 2022 revenues amount to €41.8 million, up +65.9% compared to 2021 revenues, a level significantly above the €35 million target set at the time of the Company's IPO in July 2022.

At the same time, the acceleration of the commercial momentum has continued across all business segments, with firm order intake growing exponentially to €80.6 million in 2022, an increase by +186% compared to 2021.

As a result, the backlog has significantly increased and amounted to €45 million at December 31, 2022, compared to €5.5 million at December 31, 2021.

The hypergrowth of Groupe OKwind has been accompanied by an improvement in the Company's margins, as the EBITDA rate2 2022 sets at 10.2% vs. 9.7% in 2021, i.e. €4.25 million in 2022 compared to €2.4 million in 2021.

Cash and cash equivalents at December 31, 2022

As of December 31, 2022, the Group's cash position amounted to €21.8 million, compared to €2.7 million a year earlier. The success of the initial public offering in July 2022 with a €20.5 million capital increase and the issuance of a €3.0 million convertible bond in favor of Sofiprotéol has strengthened the Company's financial resources.

During the second half of 2022, the Company experienced a virtuous operating cycle with control of its Working Capital Requirements and the acceleration of cash generation.

Commercial activity for Q1 2023

Firm order intake since January 1st of the current fiscal year, consolidated at the end of March 2023, amounted to €30 million, up significantly (+163%) from €11.4 million at the end of March 2022. As a result, the backlog at March 31, 2023 now amounts to €55.2 million compared to €12.1 million at March 31, 2022. The Company is experiencing a shorter cycle time to deliver orders received from farms. The time required to deliver orders to local authorities and industrial sites is longer, as decisions are made over a longer period of time and installations are sometimes more complex.

As of March 31, 2023, Groupe OKwind recorded revenues of €17.5 million, compared to €4.5 million as of March 31, 2022, (i.e. an increase of +289%), significantly mitigating the seasonality of its activity.

Development strategy and outlook

The first quarter of 2023 confirms Groupe OKwind's ability to accelerate its commercial development across all its business segments. The current fiscal year will also be emphasized by the Company's diversification into new growth markets, more specifically agrisolar and water and sanitation, for which several significant projects are in advanced negotiations.

In addition to its commercial deployment, the Company will continue to industrialize its processes in order to optimize them and thus cope with the increase in its activity; the Company is also committed to further expanding its industrial capacities. In addition, the Company intends to strengthen its partnerships with players specialized in the assembly and installation of trackers.

Finally, supply conditions are improving: the rise in raw material prices is now over and supply times are shorter. These factors will enable the Company to continue to improve its margin level.

However, Groupe OKwind remains cautious regarding its inventory policy, as all purchases are secured to cover the backlog until the end of September 2023.

With a robust business model and a growing and high-quality backlog, Groupe OKwind is now targeting revenues of at least €85 million for the year 2023, which is €5 million above the initial target, and a consolidated EBITDA rate over 12%.

In the near term, the Company confirms its 2026 objectives with revenues of €175 million and a consolidated EBITDA rate of around 20%.
