“During the 6 months of the financial year 2021/2022, the COVID-19 pandemic and supply chain disruption mainly due to semiconductors had a key impact on the results. Our customers, the automotive manufacturers, took steps to reduce production or, in more restrictive cases, decided to temporarily suspend production processes. As a result, we faced the challenge of planning our operations in periods of at most two weeks. In addition, the high operating expenses burdened the Group’s result.
We are continuously monitoring market trends in the automotive industry and threats caused by the COVID-19. We are taking adequate measures to ensure the safety of employees, the continuation of the Group’s operational functioning, the fulfilment of its obligations, the maintenance of financial liquidity and the minimisation of the impact of the negative effects of this situation on the Group’s profitability,” says Przemysław Skrzydlak, President of IZOBLOK S.A.”
