CEO comments
Jetpak had a strong second quarter with a total growth of 26,7 % with an underlying organic growth of 17,4 %. Total revenue amounted to TSEK 324 891 and the operating profit to TSEK 32136 with an operating margin of 9,9 %.

The Express Air segment reported a revenue of MSEK 169,7, which corresponded to a growth of 46 % with a gross margin of 40,1 (42,9) %. The margin deviation was driven by the systemized business growth in Europe (Belgium & the Netherlands). The main revenue growth drivers were primarily Europe, Denmark and Finland. Especially Europe has been fueling growth with high activity levels for large accounts within systemized and ad-hoc services. Denmark benefitted from the acquisition of CTS Express as well as increased air capacity and demand. Finland showed a strong post-pandemic pick-up. The large domestic markets were however on a lower growth path development as both Norway and Sweden were affected by lack of air capacity.

The Express Road segment reported a revenue of MSEK 146,1, which corresponded to a growth of 10,3 % and with a gross margin of 20,1 (18,2) %.
Reopening of the Nordic markets decreased the demand growth for home deliveries for our retail customers, which had some impact on our segment growth, especially in Sweden. Last year’s comparing figures for Norway included the peak distribution of tests and covid-19 vaccines, which  are still there, but on a lower level. The growth for the segment was positively affected by air luggage distribution in Denmark as well as introduction of the general Fuel & Sustainability surcharge from April.

We experienced a continued market growth in both segments during the quarter, even though our core markets in Norway and Sweden were on a lower growth path due to a lack of air capacity. Competition remained stable, even though the Express Air segment in Norway was slightly impacted by competition from substitute road solutions. We expect a relatively unchanged market situation during the second half of the year, despite an increased long term macro-economic uncertainty.

During the quarter we continued to optimize our supply chain solutions by CO2 reducing initiatives, which included the use of HVO-fuel and initiatives to increase use of electrical vehicles within densely populated areas. Development of drone technologies is closely monitored and will be an integrated part of our future supply chain solutions when we have an operational and commercial proven concept. These initiatives will remain important focus areas during coming periods.

Our most recent acquisition of CTS Express continued to develop satisfactory during the quarter and contributed with TSEK 17 676 of revenue and TSEK 2 809 of operating profit. Our acquisition of CTS Express provides a strong platform for further organic growth in Scandinavia as well as for  synergy driven acquisitions.
M&A activities continued during the quarter with focus on our acquisition target pipeline build up as well as initial meetings with candidates. This remains an important focus area and will be driving our business priorities for the coming quarters.

Russia’s war against Ukraine have had an indirect impact on Jetpak, as the increased cost for fuel have affected our road network suppliers as well as our airline suppliers. Our surcharge and pricing initiatives are in place to neutralize Jetpak’s increased fuel cost and other inflation driven costs effects.

The SAS pilot strike for 15 days by the beginning of the third quarter had some impact by the end of the second quarter, as smaller aircraft types were introduced by SAS within their domestic networks. Furthermore, we prepared for the strike within SAS by rescheduling air suppliers into our own network. A stable air capacity remains a concern due to SAS’ current financial situation, but we are continuously ensuring available back-up solutions from other Scandinavian carriers. To support our future network stability, we renewed by midyear our five-year capacity agreement with Widerøe for the Norwegian domestic and European networks.

Despite the business disturbances, a strong second quarter and first half year provide expectations of continued satisfactory performance for the coming quarters. Main uncertainty comes from the future overall macro-economic development with increasing inflation and interest levels, which potentially can affect our growth, something which therefore will be carefully monitored in order to ensure mitigating actions on both cost and pricing.
We expect continued strong two-digit organic growth for the coming quarter and reiterate our long-term organic growth and adjusted EBITA target.

Chief Executive Officer
