ZGR increases its share capital
ZGR has increased its share capital by €4.6m to strengthen its plans for growth. Over the last four years, ZGR has renewed its power electronics solutions, improving Industry, Transmission and Distribution and Energy.
Renewing its solutions backlog, driven by significant investment in R&D&I amounting to more than €4m, has converted it into one of the companies with the brightest growth prospects in the industrial energy sector.
According to its 2021-2023 Strategy Plan, ZGR foresees ending 2023 with a turnover in excess of €26m, which translates into a 234% turnover increase in three years.
Some data, why the capital increase
As a result of this growth, ZGR, with headquarters in Vitoria and subsidies in Madrid, Valencia, Mexico and Columbia, estimates a workforce increase of 12% during this time, rising from the current 89 employees to 100 in 2023.
ZGR’s transformation process started in 2017. Over the course of the past four years, the organisation has been focused towards business and we have created stability,” says CEO Íñigo Segura, who adds: “Now, both the capital increase and the financing lines achieved mean that we can consolidate our balance sheet and have enough financial strength to make the substantial investments planned in R&D&I in response to the envisaged market growth. We will continue to invest more than one million euros each year on R&D&i in the upcoming financial years”.
As a result, this capital increase confirms our partners’ confidence in and commitment to the project and conveys a clear message to all our customers, suppliers and financial institutions.
Growth in excess of 30% in 2021
So far in 2021, ZGR’s turnover has improved by 34% compared to the same period last year, with particular improvements having been made in the Industry business line. To this regard, ZGR has an important backlog of clients, including companies such as Mercadona, Abbot or Schneider. As a result of this, the company envisages closing the year with a turnover in excess of €10m, compared to €8m in 2020.
ZGR also envisages a 94% EBITDA improvement by the end of 2021, despite increased personnel costs as a consequence of new recruitments and the cost of materials and transport Another goal is to achieve a 29% improvement of the operating profit and a 35% cashflow improvement.
