Update of financial guidance for 2023


Following a stronger than expected Q2 2023 and continued strong sales momentum, GN Hearing is upgrading its organic revenue growth guidance from “5% to 10%” to “9% to 13%”. The EBITA margin in the core business of “14% to 16%” is confirmed to allow for further investments to drive growth, as well as preserving flexibility to take appropriate actions to ensure continued margin expansion.

Following a slower than expected market recovery in GN Audio’s Enterprise business, GN Audio’s organic revenue guidance is narrowed from “-10% to +5%” to “-10% to -4%”. As a consequence of the expected revenue development, GN Audio’s adj. EBITA margin is narrowed from “10% to 15%” to “10% to 12%”.

Reflecting the guidance updates for GN Hearing and GN Audio, GN Store Nord’s organic revenue growth guidance is narrowed from “-5% to +7%” to “-4% to +2%”.

All other guidance parameters are unchanged.
