- The group’s adjusted EBITDA has amounted to 11.5 million euros at the end of June, an increase of 19.8%.

Madrid, 28 July 2023-. Amper Group closed the first half of the year with an 8.3% increase in sales, which reached 181 million euros, in line with the annual business growth projections designed and contained in its Strategic and Transformation Plan 2023-2026.
The Group’s gross operating profit (EBITDA), net of non-recurring extraordinary adjustments/costs, was also in line with these projections, growing by 19.8% to €11.5 million. Half-year profit after tax amounted to 1.3 million euros.
The order book was affected – especially in Telecommunications – by the divestment of one of the Group’s non-core assets, the German company Atlas Engineering And Construction GmbH, during the first half of the year. Excluding the effect of this divestment, the Group’s backlog grew by 29.3% to EUR 397 million in the first half of the year.
During the first half of the year, the Group has developed its order book in the three strategic areas of Defence and Security, Energy and Sustainability, and Telecommunications, with the incorporation, among others, of agreements in Mexico and Argentina for the deployment of FTTH (Fiber To The Home) networks, 5G communications for the Spanish Air Force within the BACSI Project (Intelligent Sustainable Connected Air Base) or construction of offshore structures for electrical substations with Navantia.
Precisely, with Navantia, Amper closed during the first half of the year, through its subsidiary Nervión Naval-Offshore, the largest contract in the history of the Group for the construction and assembly of jackets components for the Dieppe Le Tréport offshore wind farm in France.
For Enrique López, CEO of Amper Group, “the evolution of the company’s business and operating results is in line with the projections that had been made for a year such as 2023, which is of maximum demand, given that it represents the start of the Group’s Strategic and Transformation Plan”.
