The STEICO Group is operating in a market environment that is getting to normal after booming demand for around two years. Increasing interest rates and higher inflation made their first impact on the construction sector in 2022. At the same time, the availability of wood-fibre insulation materials improved significantly thanks to newly created production capacity. As a result, demand returned to normal. Traders and processing companies built up above-average levels of stocks during the boom, however these stock levels successively were scaled back to normal from the second half of 2022. Requirements for additional deliveries were lower as a result.

STEICO was still able to lift its revenues by 14.7% to € 445.2 million. EBITDA was down by 1.4% to € 90.0 million and EBIT fell by 3.6% to € 65.2 million. Net income was down by 0.6% to € 47.9 million year-on-year.

Earnings per share amounted to 3,40 € (previous year: 3,42 €).

The wood-fibre insulation materials market was still booming in the first quarter of 2022, however the first quarter of 2023 was slower. The order backlog at STEICO’s processing companies continues to be high, however re-sellers behaviour is very reserved. The company’s management believes that this is due in particular to the improved availability of wood-fibre insulation materials – as a result many re-sellers are continuing to downscale the amount they hold in stock and are only placing orders in line with requirements. This was coupled with poor weather conditions in many places and also the impact of a cyber attack on STEICO at the start of March.

Revenues in Q1 2023 were down by 16.7% to € 96.5 million year-on-year. EBITDA amounted to € 12.8 million and was thus 45.5% lower than in the previous year. EBIT totalled  €5.9 million, down 65.9% year-on-year.

Dividend proposal

Based on the positive business development the board of administration proposes to annual general meeting to appropriate the net retained profits in 2022 to pay a dividend of 0.40 € per share (dividend 2021: 0.40 € per share). The volume of the dividend distribution would amount to 5,633,386.00 € in total.


Despite the weaker first quarter the company’s management believes that demand will increase significantly in particular in the second half of the year. In addition to the recovery as a result of the season and the high order backlog at the processing companies, increasingly positive impetus is expected from an increased level of renovation activities.

However, the environment is more demanding on the whole, and as a result the Executive Board is thus expecting slightly lower growth for 2023 as a whole.

If the continued economic developments do not result in any negative effects, the Executive Board is forecasting revenue at the previous year’s level of around € 445 million and an EBIT ratio of between 10% and 15% (to total operating revenue).
