Prospects for 2022

2022 is evolving into a difficult year for the world economy and definitely for the Greek economy as well. Russia’s war in Ukraine is causing a backlash and price increases in many of the raw materials and continues to disrupt the supply chain. Rising inflation, energy and transportation costs are ongoing challenges to corporate profitability. The continuing uncertainty and turmoil in the global economy do not allow easy conclusions to be drawn about the course of the companies’ financial figures for 2022.

In the first quarter of 2022 and the period until the publication of the Basic Financial Figures of the first quarter, IDEAL Holdings relied on its development plan but on the defenses it had created to significantly strengthen its financial figures. The management of the Company estimates that with the publication of the results of the AD Semester 2022 it will be able to formulate clear forecasts for the financial figures that concern the whole of 2022. The acquisitions made in 2022 together with the existing investments, it is certain that will significantly boost economic figures in 2022 compared to 2021.
