AutoStore today announces revenue in the first quarter 2022 of USD 123.1 million, up 91.9% from the corresponding quarter in 2021 (USD 64.1 million), and an adjusted EBITDA of USD 54.2 million (32.3). The company had an order intake of USD 160.6 million, bringing the backlog to USD 487.0 million. AutoStore today hosts the Capital Markets Day 2022 at 14:30 CEST and reiterates the 2022 revenue guidance of USD 550-600 million with expected margin improvements going into 2023.
“AutoStore delivered another strong quarter with a revenue growth of 91.9%, an adjusted EBITDA margin of 44.0%, and a solid order intake of USD 160.6 million, bringing our order backlog to an all-time high of USD 487 million. AutoStore business model has proven to be resilient in volatile and uncertain time and we have the flexibility to navigate temporary supply chain challenges. With the 2021 performance as tailwind on top of our proven expansion strategy, we see significant opportunities for growth acceleration going forward and reiterates our 2022 revenue guidance,“ says Karl Johan Lier, Chief Executive Officer of AutoStore.
“AutoStore continues to benefit from a huge, underpenetrated market with high expected growth rates for fast cubic storage. The expected growth is driven by development in e-commerce, changes in consumer demand, labor shortages, and pressure on warehouse costs. We made significant progress in the quarter to further penetrate and grow this USD 230 billion addressable market for automated storage and retrieval systems. Our market access in important regions continued and we gained market shares in the attractive markets within Micro-Fulfillment Centers and high throughput, and further developed our technological leadership,“ Lier says.
