Statement by the Chief Executive Officer

Francesco Nalini, CEO of the Group, commented: “For the sixth consecutive quarter, CAREL recorded double-digit percentage organic revenue growth. The Group benefits, first and foremost, from the results of the strategic choices made over the years based, among other things, on product innovation aimed at environmental sustainability. It was with this in mind that we joined the UN Global Compact a few weeks ago, publicly reaffirming our commitment to the pursuit of sustainable and lasting success that has the 10 principles of the Global Compact as some of its founding elements. In addition to this, initiatives promoted with the aim of increasing production resilience have made it possible to maintain such a significant growth rate despite the particularly complex scenario in terms of electronics shortages. For the foreseeable future, the global macroeconomic environment is still very challenging: in addition to the shortage phenomenon, which has been accompanied by a significant and generalised increase in costs, there are signs of an economic slowdown that could be exacerbated by the restrictive monetary policies implemented by the Federal Reserve and the European Central Bank. In this context, CAREL will continue to develop the business in its niches, which have both long and short trends that are decidedly positive, looking to the future with optimism and providing increasingly advanced solutions that anticipate the needs of the market.
