Segments Vita & Other driving the beat Fiskars Q2 report saw continuous trends as was expected, where Terra and Crea growth rates slowed down on tougher comparables and Vita drove the adj.
EBITA growth, which resulted in a group adj. EBITA growth of 57% y-o-y. Whereas the adj.
EBITA beat on headline numbers was 28% vs. ABGSCe and 25% vs. cons, we note that the Other segment reported a positive adj.
EBITA of 0.5m vs. its usual negative result of between 3m and 4m due to timing differences in spending. Adjusting for this, the underlying beat was in the teens.
A strong report nonetheless, with Vita being the driver. The company states that the savings program related to Vita is progressing well and reduces the cost guidance for the program by EUR 5m. The company furthermore delays the guidance for the other program by one quarter to Q1’22.

EBITA. For ’22e-‘23e, we could see cons. lifting estimates by some 1-3%.
