President's comments -
STRONG CONCLUSION TO AN EVENTFUL YEAR

Following an eventful year that was charactirised by operational challenges, it is gratifying to present a close to record-breaking conclusion to 2021 with favourable sales and earnings trends. ITAB's transformation work and investments for the future proceeded according to plan, and several important steps were taken to establish ITAB as the retail sector's leading solution provider with a focus on sustainable growth and increased profitability. I am particularly proud of how our employees have succeeded in meeting increased demand while managing supply disruptions, component and material shortages, and increased shipping, energy and material costs as a result of the pandemic.

The sales trend was strong for the full year 2021, with currency-adjusted growth of 19 percent, of which organic growth accounted for 8 percent and the acquisition of Cefla Retail Solutions at the beginning of the year for 11 percent. Our focus throughout the year has been on supporting customers by providing them with the most complete solutions possible despite global supply disruptions, which was reflected in strong organic growth for the full year as well as the fourth quarter. The positive earnings trend is mainly the result of these increased sales and our ongoing efforts to transform our operations, including completed production relocations and cost adaptations, more shared ways of working and more efficient and flexible market cultivation, despite operational challenges," concludes President & CEO Andréas Elgaard.
