Switzerland-based aseptic packaging provider SIG has reported €1.14bn ($1.15bn) in revenue for the first half (H1) of the fiscal year 2022 (FY22).

The company’s diluted earnings per share (EPS) also declined to €0.19 in H1, compared with €0.28 a year earlier.

SIG’s H1 earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) were €238, while its adjusted EBITDA margin declined to 24.6% from 27.3% in H1 2021.

In the second quarter (Q2) of FY22, the company’s revenue increased by 25.5% on a reported basis to €645.9m compared with €514.5m in the same period of last year.

SIG Group CEO Samuel Sigrist said: “Our business performed strongly in the first half of the year despite the volatile environment.  Organic growth, including both volume and price increases, was robust and accelerated in Q2, especially when compared with an exceptional first half of 2021.”

For FY22, SIG expects full-year revenue growth of 22-24% on a constant currency basis and an adjusted EBITDA margin of around 26%.

Last month, the company completed its previously announced acquisition of flexible packaging company Scholle IPN.
