Financial & non-financial guidance
Barco will also share its outlook-guidance, reconfirming the 2022 outlook with a 25% topline growth compared to 2021, and an EBITDA margin for the year between 10% and 12%, assuming economic conditions and supply chain constraints do not further deteriorate and orders to sales conversion continues to improve in the second half of the year.
For the next 3 years, management guides for a high single digit organic topline CAGR with a more articulated growth in 2023 (10 to 15%). We target an EBITDA margin over the next 3 years between 14% and 18%.
In addition, the company shared its non-financial objectives for 2025, targeting more than 70% of its revenues to be ECO-labelled and a carbon emission reduction of 45% (versus the baseline of 2015).
