Notes

  • EBITDA is stated before exceptional costs and acquisition related costs.
  • Operating cash conversion is EBITDA less capex less lease payments less working capital.

Strong revenue growth of 5.3%

Annual revenue of €3.15bn benefited from a continued focus on broadening and deepening our business relationships with existing customers, winning new key accounts, driving increasing digitalisation, and network development and strategic acquisition activity. Given the mixed macro backdrop, the primary focus was on driving organic growth.

EBITDA of €319m

The business was able to continue to drive earnings growth in an inflationary environment. Furthermore, the new management team has implemented structural cost savings, which will bear fruit in 2024.

Cash conversion maintained

Cash generated from operations of €284m allowed us to invest for future growth, including €16m in M&A.

Robust liquidity and financing

We are funded through a combination of fixed term loans, redeemable preference shares and a revolving credit facility. Rubix has total headroom of €313m across cash and further undrawn facilities, providing significant financial resources to deliver our growth strategy. The business has since been able to successfully reprice its senior debt facilities given the ever improving credit metrics. This was further exemplified with an S&P credit upgrade to B in March 2024.

Strong funding position

We have continued to maintain our strong funding position and robust balance sheet with the ongoing support of our shareholder (Advent International) and our long term debt providers.
