Zurich / CH. (aag) Swiss Aryzta AG reported its financial results for the first nine months ended 30 April (9M-2022). Nine months organic revenue growth accelerated to 16.3 percent driven by positive volume and pricing, the company said in its Ad Hoc announcement. Performance overview:

Aryzta continuing operations reported strong organic growth of 22.6 percent in the third quarter of FY-2022. Total continuing revenue increased by 20.1 percent to EUR 433.9 million. The strong organic performance was driven by volume growth of 15.6 percent and price/mix improvement of 7.0 percent.

Total continuing revenue in the nine months to date, increased to EUR 1,269.2 million, driven by a strong organic performance of 16.3 percent, comprising volume growth of 12.7 percent and a price/mix contribution of 3.6 percent.

The pricing contribution accelerated significantly to 6.1 percent in Q3. Through the quarter pricing increased from 4.7 percent in February to 7.7 percent in April, and is significantly stronger than the 1.6 percent pricing contribution achieved in H1.

This reflects the ongoing work to recover widespread inflationary costs. Inflationary pressures remain, with limited respite expected in the near term, resulting in more frequent pricing and the use of temporary surcharges.
