Haier Full-Year Report 2023


In 2023, Haier Smart Home achieved a global revenue of RMB261.428 billion, marking a year-on-year growth of 7.3%. Our net profit attributable to shareholders grew 12.8% to RMB16.597 billion; the net profit attributable to shareholders deducting non-recurring items under PRC GAAP amounted to RMB15.824 billion, a growth of 13.3% year-on-year.

For the financial year ended 31 December, 2023, the net profit attributable to shareholders of the Company was RMB16.597 billion, representing a 12.8% increase from 2022. The net profit attributable to shareholders of the Company after deducting non-recurring items amounted to RMB15.824 billion, representing a growth of 13.3% compared to the same period in 2022.

The Company’s gross profit margin reached 31.5% in 2023, up 0.2 percentage points compared to the same period in 2022. Margin improvement in domestic market was driven by lower commodity prices, digitalisation in procurement and R&D, development of a digitalised production and sales coordination system, and improved product mix. In overseas markets, benefits from better product mix and production capacity utilisation were partly offset by intensified competition in key regions, resulting in a year-on-year decline in gross profit margin.

Jungheinrich Full-Year Report 2023

Jungheinrich AG prepared the consolidated financial statements for the financial year ending on 31 December 2023 in compliance with the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). All standards and interpretations of the IFRS Interpretations Committee endorsed by the EU and effective as at the balance sheet date were applied. Regulations under commercial law pursuant to Section 315e of the German Commercial Code (HGB) were complementarily taken into account.

Starting from a closing price of €26.58 on the last trading day of 2022, the Jungheinrich share began the year under review at €27.04. The Board of Management published an ad hoc announcement on 25 January 2023 regarding the acquisition of the Storage Solutions Group. Following the announcement, the share reached an annual high of €36.76 on 2 February 2023.


  • Despite an increase in personnel (including through acquisitions), tariff effects, a rise in the cost of materials and a slight decrease in number of units produced in comparison with the previous year, we were able to generate EBIT of €430 million thanks to appropriate measures and thus achieve a figure in the middle of the forecast range of €400 million to €450 million.
  • EBIT and negative effects from transaction-related expenses, effects from the purchase price allocation and variable remuneration elements for the management of the Storage Solutions Group.
  • EBIT ROS came to 7.8 per cent and was thus at the lower end of the range of between 7.8 per cent and 8.6 per cent.
  • At €399 million, EBT was in the middle of the expected range of €370 million to €420 million. EBIT ROS came to 7.2 per cent and was thus at the lower end of the forecast range of between 7.2 per cent and 8.0 per cent.
  • ROCE of 15.9 per cent was in the lower half of the forecast range of 15.0 per cent to 18.0 per cent. This was due to the increase in average capital employed in the reporting year as a result of the goodwill recognized for Storage Solutions and Magazino in the amount of €302 million.

  • In 2023, Cepsa accelerated its ambitious Positive Motion strategy to transform from a traditional oil and gas company to become a European leader in the production of green molecules this decade with the sale of 50% of its Upstream portfolio, and posted a Clean CCS EBITDA of €1,402m
  • 2023 CCS Net Income was €278m, also reflecting the sale of the Company’s Upstream assets in Abu Dhabi
  • Cepsa’s cash flow from operations of €1,126m for 2023 showed the resilience of its cash generation even with lower Upstream production and the impact of Spain’s extraordinary tax on energy companies, as the Energy and Chemicals segments performed within expectations in the period
  • Cepsa’s total tax contribution in the year reached €5,529m, of which 75% or €4,150m was paid in Spain. This figure includes the payment of €323m corresponding to the extraordinary tax imposed on energy companies based on 2022 revenues

  • In February 2024, a key Positive Motion milestone was reached when Cepsa broke ground on the construction of the largest second-generation biofuels plant in southern Europe, kicking off the start of a new chapter for the Company. The plant, due to begin production in 2026, will be built with joint venture partner Bio-Oils, entailing a total 1.2-billion-euro investment and the ability to flexibly produce 500,000 tons of sustainable aviation fuel and renewable diesel annually, helping to position Spain as a leading provider of decarbonization solutions for land, sea and air transport

Quanex Corp. Q1 Report 2024

Quanex reported net sales of $239.2 million during the three months ended January 31, 2024, which represents a decrease of 8.7% compared to $261.9 million for the same period of 2023. The decrease was largely attributable to softer market demand and lower pricing in North America.

In its North American Cabinet Components segment, Quanex reported a decline of 21.1% in net sales for the first quarter. Excluding foreign exchange impact, the Company realized a decrease in net sales of 8.4% for the first quarter in its European Fenestration segment.

The increase in earnings for the three months ended January 31, 2024, was mostly attributable to a decline in raw material costs, a decrease in stock-based compensation expense, and lower interest expense.

  • As of January 31, 2024, Quanex had a total debt of $65.2 million ($13.5 million excluding real-estate leases that are considered “finance” leases under U.S. GAAP) and the Company’s leverage ratio of Net Debt to LTM Adjusted EBITDA was unchanged at 0.1x (Net Debt free excluding these real-estate leases).
