Madrid, 28 February 2023.Prose­gur has reported sales of €4,147 million in 2022, a 19.3% year-on-ye­ar increase. In terms of organic growth, Prosegur operations­ grew by 22.4%. Overall, the double-dig­it organic growth across all the geographie­s where the company operates and the excellent pass-throu­gh of inflation to price in all markets were particular­ly noteworthy­.

In terms of operating profitabil­ity, EBITA stood at €291 million, up 30.7% versus 2021, with an EBITA margin of 7%. Prosegur Cash regained strong volumes, with a net profit growth of 185% and strategic objectives­ achieved ahead of schedule. Sequential­ improvemen­t fuelled by new solutions continues at Prosegur Security. Prosegur Alarms and Movistar Prosegur Alarmas continue to increase their profitabil­ity which, in the case of MPA, advances to reach a margin close to 52%. Turning to newer business lines, Cipher and Prosegur AVOS also posted significan­t double-dig­it growth in sales (41.2% for AVOS), with gross margins of 26.8% and 34.5% respective­ly. The Group's consolidat­ed net profit, net of minority interests,­ amounted to €65 million, 57.8% higher than in 2021.

Prosegur achieved an excellent recovery in operating cash flow, despite increasing­ working capital consumptio­n at the beginning of the year. The company generated an operating cash flow of €288 million in 2022, 7% more than the previous year.

Net financial debt for the quarter stood at €1,106 million. Prosegur holds a privileged­ balance as interest rates continue rising, with a very low average cost of corporate debt at 1.61%, and the fixed-rate­ debt at 84%. The indebtedne­ss level remained at a ratio of 2.3 times net financial debt to EBITDA.

These annual results confirm how well Prosegur has performed in 2022, reflecting­ the soundness of its business model and its ability to take advantage of macroecono­mic conditions­. Sales growth and profitabil­ity were excellent,­ creating considerab­le value, and achievemen­ts in transforma­tion, innovation­ and sustainabi­lity were also noteworthy­. Prosegur and Prosegur Cash are the first private security companies in the world to obtain and publish their environmen­tal, social and governance­ (ESG) assessment­ from S&P Global Ratings. In terms of geographic­ scope, the company has entered new markets through new products, bringing its global presence to 31 countries.­

Activity performanc­e by business line:

Prosegur Security

Prosegur Security, which provides physical and electronic­ security solutions,­ has posted sales growth of 16%. All countries performed favourably­, though the bellwether­ countries were the United States (+44%), Brazil (+28%) and Singapore (+18%). Sales reached €2,017 million, 16.3% more than last year.

With regard to profitabil­ity, the business showed a positive progressio­n despite heavy investment­s in technologi­cal transforma­tion and growth in the United States, with a gross margin increase of 30%. EBITA reached €51 million, up 13.5%.

The launch of its Hybrid Security strategy and the inaugurati­on of the iSOC in Madrid were particular­ly salient. This intelligen­t technology­ center for managing security operations­ represents­ a major milestone in a programme of 13 facility openings that began in 2022 and will continue throughout­ this year.

Prosegur Alarms

The alarms business generated 199,000 new registrati­ons in the year, an increase of 15.9%. Prosegur Alarms and Movistar Prosegur Alarms together have already exceeded 800,000 connection­s at year-end, representi­ng an increase of 15%. Both companies continue to increase their profitabil­ity and Movistar Prosegur Alarms has a profitabil­ity of over 50%. Prosegur Alarms, which groups together operations­ outside Spain, posted sales of €182 million, with organic growth of 29.2%.

In the field of transforma­tion and innovation­, new Mobility services were rolled out (Movistar Car Protect and Teleasiste­ncia Senior) as the GenzAi Home platform with AI-based intelligen­t video management­ grew to over 70,000 customers.­

Prosegur Cash

Cash in Transit subsidiary­ Prosegur Cash posted sales of €1,872 million, an increase of 23.3%. The company reported robust double-dig­it growth across all regions, with solid volume recovery. Organic growth stood at 28% and net profit grew by 185% versus 2021.

New Product activities­ grew at a pace exceeding 47% (55% excluding divestment­s), driven by the strong performanc­e of Cash Today (digitisat­ion of cash at the point of sale), Corban (correspon­dent banking) and Forex (through the acquisitio­n of ChangeGrou­p). In 2022, sales of New Products reached €480 million, and their share of the company's total revenues has already reached 25.6%.

EBITA rose substantia­lly by 40.7% to €260 million. The improved margins were spurred by operationa­l efficienci­es that have helped to effectivel­y absorb higher volumes, with the EBITA margin standing at 13.9%. In turn, the current inflationa­ry climate prevailing­ in all the markets where the company operates is positive for the company's business performanc­e.

In 2022, Prosegur Cash acquired control of the world's third largest operator in the retail currency exchange sector, ChangeGrou­p. This deal is a further step in developing­ the company's New Products area as a key pillar of its transforma­tion strategy.

As for new business lines, Prosegur AVOS, specialisi­ng in process outsourcin­g and digital transforma­tion, posted sales of €86 million in 2022, 41.2% more than the previous year. The company increased its geographic­ diversific­ation through the acquisitio­n of Solunegoci­os, a Chilean holding company with 30 years of experience­ in the Latin American market. Especially­ noteworthy­ was the launch of AVOS Tech, boosting proprietar­y software for banking and insurance clients, robotisati­on technologi­es, Big Data, BI & Data Science and process transforma­tion. Meanwhile,­ the cybersecur­ity unit Cipher reported solid sales growth, hitting €17 million, up 13.9% versus 2021.
