In every region. Our team has done an outstanding job of efficiently managing product flow in what we anticipate will be the near final stages of supply shortages resulting from last year’s plant closures. Thanks to them, we were able to welcome many new fans into the On community and equip them with our latest product launches. In June, for the first time in our history, monthly net sales exceeded 100 million Swiss francs, bringing our total net sales for the first half of 2022 to more than 500 million Swiss francs. Based on the performance we saw in the first half, we are again raising our full-year 2022 net revenue and adjusted EBITDA outlook. As we continue our mission to ignite the he human spirit through movement, we think long-term and our goal is to build a sustainable business at the intersection of performance, design and impact.

We are delighted to see that our commitment to developing high performance products to unlock the full potential of our athletes is paying off. Over the past few weeks, On athletes have shown incredible performances, leading not only to our first Diamond League win, but also to our first Commonwealth Games and World Championship medals. This quarter also saw us achieve significant milestones in our mission to drive sustainable and circular innovations.

It said: “After a very successful first half with net sales exceeding 500 million Swiss francs, we remain confident in our ability to execute our growth strategy in the second half of 2022 despite continuing macroeconomic challenges and uncertainties.

Nonetheless, we see it as our duty to remain cautious and alert in such an environment and have taken some steps to increase our cost base somewhat more conservatively than initially expected.

“The first half of 2022 had been further impacted by transient supply shortages following factory closures in 2021. Thanks to the dedication and commitment of our factory partners, our stock situation has meanwhile improved. considerably improved. Thus, the use of air freight should be reduced in the second half of the year. We will continue to selectively use air freight to ensure availability of our more recently launched products, which did not have an initial stock position. From there, we expect a limited headwind to our gross profit margin of 150 to 200 basis points in Q3 2022.

“Given the current macroeconomic challenges as well as the very successful first half of 2022, we are increasing our outlook for net sales and adjusted EBITDA. For the year ended December 31, 2022, we now expect net sales to reach 1.1 billion Swiss francs, representing 52% year-over-year growth compared to 2021. The increase in expected net sales will enable additional growth-oriented investments in the brand while increasing our adjusted EBITDA target for the full year at CHF 145 million, confirming our objective of an adjusted EBITDA margin of 13.2%, even with a significantly high revenue outlook. net earnings under IFRS, we only provide guidance on a non-IFRS basis The Company does not provide a reconciliation between forward-looking Adjusted EBITDA and IFRS net income due to the inherent difficulty in predicting and quantifying certain amounts necessary for such a reconciliation. Accordingly, we are unable to predict with reasonable certainty all of the deductions necessary to provide a reconciliation to net income. »
