Brembo reports 17.2% increase in Q1 revenues
Leading brake manufacturer Brembo has reported a 17.2 per cent increase in first-quarter 2021 revenues to 675.1 million euros. According to the company, the figure is even higher (+20.9%) where foreign exchange effects are considered on a basis. During the same period pre-tax profits (EBITDA) amounted to 135.6 million euros, which equates to a margin of 20.1 per cent (EBITDA). Net profits for the first quarter stood at 61.4 million euros.
Commenting on the news, Brembo chairman Alberto Bombassei stated: “We have begun Brembo’s 60th year with particularly encouraging results. The figures for the first quarter of 2021 approved by the board of directors today indicate a robust recovery and point to a continuation of the trend witnessed in the final three months of 2020. Never before in Brembo’s history had we seen revenues this high in the first quarter, up not only on the same period of 2020 but also, and above all, on 2019. Our results were driven by the positive performance of all segments and geographical areas in which we operate. Although the market scenario continues to be marked by uncertainties, these results allow us to look to the coming months with confidence. We remain focused on the innovation of our solutions thanks to an increasingly integrated and sustainability-oriented product portfolio which has been expanded through the acquisition of SBS Friction in Denmark and will be further enhanced by the recently announced acquisition of J.Juan in Spain.”
