In every country, our growth story is still unfolding, and our consumers are quite happy with what we have to offer.

We are boosting our guidance for the entire year as a result.
forecasted growth throughout the entire year
Eenhorst is increasing its full-year prediction due to the excellent overall position. With an EBITDA margin of between 1.5% and 3%, total revenues are anticipated to be in the range of EUR 1.7 billion and EUR 1.8 billion. In the best situation, free cash flow may be positive at EUR 20 million. Eenhorst, however, gives a range of between -20 and +20 million euros.
Analysts had previously projected 1.71 billion euros in revenue and 29.5 million euros in EBITDA. Free cash flow estimates have been on average -13.5 million euros.
