IZO-BLOK S.A. has closed IQ 2016/2017 with a net income of PLN 2,979 thousand compared to PLN 1,352 thousand for IQ 2015/2016. This is a record-breaking increase in the 18 years of the Company’s history. Sales revenue was at a level of PLN 22,399 thousand and was 8.5% higher than for the same period for the previous year. EBIDTA and EBIT (Earnings Before Interest and Taxes) were at a comparable level as in IQ 2015/2016 and the outcome was PLN 4,475 thousand and PLN 3,326 thousand.

It was a very demanding quarter for us: issue of shares in order to partially finance the acquisition of our biggest competitor, significant contracts from Jaguar and Johnson Controls. It has been a hard-working time. That’s why I’m happy with the results achieved by the Company. However, another challenge lies ahead. Consolidation.” – says Przemysław Skrzydlak, CEO of IZO-BLOK S.A.
