Modestas Sudnius, CEO of Eleving Group, comments:
“While there is a lot of uncertainty in the world and capital markets, Eleving Group continues to demonstrate stable and solid performance. Group’s portfolio and revenue continued to grow in the first half of this year while the company continued to execute its strategy. That has brought strong financial results with the best 6M profitability.
“Keeping that in mind, we are cautious about various signals of an economic slowdown initiated by the geopolitical and economic situation in the world, such as inflation, rising costs of energy resources, and overall sentiment in the economy. In the upcoming six months, Eleving group will maintain its growth and development strategy but will take a more conservative approach in its underwriting policies, will seek for further improvements in operational efficiency, and focus on existing products and geographies mixed with cautious tests of new concepts.”
In June, Eleving Group received a rating reaffirmation at B- with a stable outlook from Fitch Ratings. This rating action is viewed positively by the Group as it confirms that Eleving Group’s strategy and implemented actions are effective even in times of economic uncertainty.
