Financial guidance for 2023
Revenio Groupâs exchange rate-adjusted net sales are estimated to grow strongly from the previous year and profitability, excluding non-recurring items, is estimated to remain at a good level.
President and CEO Jouni Toijala comments:
âWe had a very strong last quarter despite the prevailing macroeconomic uncertainty. The sales of our retinal imaging devices increased very strongly in the last quarter of the year. Following the review period, we gave a positive profit warning regarding the financial performance in 2022 on January 26, 2023. In particular, the final quarter of 2022 was stronger than expected. Our net sales increased by 18.8% to EUR 28.3 million, and our operating profit was strong, 33.1%. Currency exchange rates were favorable to us at the beginning of the year, but not so much towards the end of the year. Our scalable business model showed its power, and the very strong growth of net sales resulted in strong profitability.
In the United States, we had a very strong last quarter, particularly in retinal imaging devices. Besides the United States, sales were also good in our traditionally strong markets. We also established a sales company in China to reinforce our presence in the growing Chinese market.
Demand for our intraocular pressure measurement devices developed positively. iCare HOME2, our device for measuring intraocular pressure at home has received positive feedback from customers and is growing strongly in demand.
In the third quarter, we concluded a rather large contract related to multinational clinical research, with deliveries continuing into the fourth quarter. The iCare EIDON product family made impressive sales throughout the year, and the sales of the iCare DRSplus retinal imaging device continued to be strong. In April, we launched the fully automatic iCare ILLUME and iCare DRSplus screening solution, which utilizes artificial intelligence in the screening of diabetic retinopathy. iCare ILLUME has received excellent feedback from the market. The iCare ILLUME pilot projects have proceeded as planned, and we started the first commercial system-level delivery at the end of the review period. During the review period, we already created several country-specific language versions.
The core of our growth strategy is to strengthen our position in the eye care market through innovative, user-friendly products and software solutions designed to improve patient experience in the eye care pathways. Our screening solutions supporting clinical decision-making, such as iCare ILLUME, based on the high-quality data generated by our devices and the related software solutions, substantially improve the patientâs eye care pathway and the processes of eye care professionals.
We have been working on increasing brand awareness of our iCare brand and won market shares with our main products in our key markets. We continue to invest on product development in order to launch new product and system innovations into the market. We aim to speed up our organic growth in the future as well. Furthermore, we continue to survey the market to identify acquisition opportunities and to expand our product selection in the ocular diagnostics market.
After the end of the review period, on February 1, 2023, we announced a new organizational structure effective from February 1, 2023. Over the past two years, we have gone through a significant evolution from an equipment supplier to a global leader of comprehensive eye diagnostics solutions. The objective of the change in the organizational structure is to support the solution business and the increasingly stronger customer experience. I am very pleased that we have found talented managers through internal transfers for these new important roles. We will be updating our strategy with the support of the new organization during the Spring.
In 2022, we continued the development of our sustainability program with surveys providing feedback for the further specification of sustainability focus areas. The net impact of Revenioâs sustainability and business was assessed by the net impact assessment model of Upright, an independent assessment company. The assessment model measures positive and negative impacts in the companyâs value chain. The net impact profile based on artificial intelligence and scientific research shows that Revenio is a company with a strong positive net impact. Revenioâs most significant and relevant positive impact is the promotion of health. Our products and services create a significant positive impact when they are used for the diagnosis of physical ocular disease and for preventing other diseases in addition to ocular disease.
In the autumn of 2022, Ecovadis implemented a sustainability review of our Finnish operations 2022 (Icare Finland), and towards the end of 2022, we expanded the review to cover our Italian organization as well. The reviews cover all Revenioâs medical device design and manufacturing. We achieved the Silver level in both reviews. The review also gave us good feedback on how to develop our operations, and we have started systematic development work based on it. We are in the highest quadrant of the classification compared to our peers. We intend to repeat the reviews in 2023 and make them a regular part of measuring the development of our operations.
Challenges related to our operating environment continue due to the war in Ukraine, cost inflation as well as the COVID-19 pandemic. We estimate that the spreading of the pandemic in China may especially affect the availability of components and have attempted to prepare for this in advance. Our organization is working constantly to ensure the availability of our products and the operation of our global delivery chain.
The year 2022 marked yet another year of excellent performance by our personnel and showed the efficiency and ability of our organization. This makes me very happy. I wish to thank all our personnel, customers, distributors, and partners throughout the world. Letâs continue our important work together to enable efficient ocular diagnostics and to make this wonderful world visible to all.â
The effects of the war in Ukraine on Revenio
The security situation in Europe has changed drastically since Russia invasion of Ukraine. Revenio stopped all its business in Russia and Belarus in the first quarter of the year. Revenioâs sales in Russia have been limited prior to the war, accounting for less than two per cent of net sales.
Revenio Groupâs strategy
The cornerstones of the Groupâs strategy are:
- Focus fully on the eye care market
- Improve the quality of clinical diagnostics with targeted product innovations
- Transform clinical care pathways with eye care focused software solutions
- Continue to develop stronger distribution and build on iCare brand awareness and client experience
- Continue strong profitable growth

Risks and uncertainty factors
Risks Revenio Group is exposed to include strategic, operational, business cycle, damage, financial, and political risks. In addition, the threat of the global impact of pandemics and the risk of cyber threats have increased.
The Groupâs strategic risks include competition in all segments, threats posed by new competing products and other actions by rivals that may affect the competitive situation. There are strategic risks also related to the ability of the Group to succeed in its R&D activities and to maintain a competitive product mix. The Group develops new technologies at Icare Finland Oy, Revenio Research Oy, CenterVue SpA and iCare World Australia Pty Ltd, and any failure in the commercialization of individual development projects may result in the impairment of capitalized development expenses, with an impact on the financial result. Strategic risks also relate to the successful management and development of key human resources, and management of the subcontractor and supplier network.
Acquisitions and the purchase of health technology-related assets with growth potential are part of the Groupâs strategy. The success of acquisitions by the Group may have a significant impact on Revenio Group meeting its growth and profitability targets. Acquisitions may also change the Groupâs risk profile.
Strategic risks and the need for action are regularly monitored and assessed in connection with day-to-day management, monthly Group reporting, and annual strategy reviews.
Operational risks are associated with the retention and development of major customer relationships, activities amongst the distribution network, and success in expanding the customer base and markets. In the health technology sector, there are particular operational risks related to business expansion into new markets, such as countries' marketing authorizations and other national regulatory activities related to medical devices and the local health care market. Success in strategic health technology R&D projects can also be classified as an operational risk. Furthermore, global shortage of electronics components may cause operational risks.
Due to the health technology sectorâs stringent quality requirements, operational risks related to the manufacture, product development, and production control of medical devices are estimated to be higher than average for industry.
Damage-related risks are covered by insurance. Property and business interruption insurance provides protection against risks in these areas. The business activities of the Group are covered by international liability insurance.
Financial risks can be further categorized into credit, interest-rate, liquidity, and foreign exchange risks. The Board assesses financial risks and other financial matters in its monthly meetings, or more frequently, as necessary. If required, the Board provides decisions and guidelines for the management of financial risks including, for example, interest-rate and currency hedging decisions. Liquidity risk can be affected by the availability of external financing, the development of the Groupâs credit standing, trends in business operations, and changes in the payment behavior of customers. Cash forecasts, drawn up for periods of up to 12 months are employed to monitor liquidity risks.
The management of corporate responsibility risks is a part of the Companyâs risk management process. Under this process, the risks are assessed yearly.
Revenio Group products are sold in nearly 100 countries. Uncertainty over trade policy or unstable political situations may affect demand for our products. Revenio actively monitors political developments in various market areas from a risk management perspective. Developments in national government policies or changes to relevant legislation may have an impact on the Groupâs business.
Moreover, global pandemics such as Covid-19 may have direct and indirect effects on Revenio Group's business, including and an increased risk of personnel being incapacitated. Government-mandated closures of factories or borders may weaken Revenio Group's operating environment and restrictions on the movement of people could hamper the sales and delivery of our products.

The AGM decided based on the Board's proposal to pay a dividend of EUR 0.34 per share. Dividend will be paid to shareholders who have been registered in the company's shareholder register, maintained by Euroclear Finland Ltd, by the dividend record date on April 12, 2022. The dividend payment date was April 21, 2022.
3. Authorizing the Board of Directors to decide to repurchase the Company's own shares
The AGM authorized the Board of Directors to resolve on the acquisition or accepting as pledge of a maximum of 1,334,055 of the companyâs own shares in one or more tranches using the companyâs unrestricted equity. The company may buy back shares in order to develop its capital structure, finance and implement any corporate acquisitions or other transactions, implement share-based incentive plans, pay board fees or otherwise transfer or cancel them.
The company may buy back shares in public trading on marketplaces whose rules and regulations allow the company to trade in its own shares. In such a case, the company buys back shares through a directed purchase, i.e. in a proportion other than its shareholdersâ holdings of company shares, with the consideration paid for the shares based on their publicly quoted market price so that the minimum price of the purchased shares equals the lowest market price quoted in public trading during the authorization period and their maximum price equals the highest market price quoted in public trading during that period.
The authorization is effective until the end of the Annual General Meeting held in 2023, yet no further than until June 30, 2023. This authorization shall supersede the authorization granted at the Annual General Meeting of March 17, 2021.
4. Authorizing the Board of Directors to decide on a share issue and on granting stock options and other special rights entitling to shares
The AGM decided to authorize the Board of Directors to decide on issuing a maximum of 1,334,055 shares in a share issue or by granting special rights (including stock options) entitling holders to shares as referred to in Chapter 10 Section 1 of the Companies Act, in one or several tranches.
This authorization is to be used to finance and implement any prospective corporate acquisitions or other transactions, to implement the companyâs share-based incentive plans, or for other purposes determined by the Board.
The authorization grants the Board the right to decide on all terms and conditions governing the share issue and the granting of said special rights, including on the recipients of the shares or special rights and the amount of payable consideration. The authorization also includes the right to issue shares by deviating from the shareholdersâ pre-emptive rights, i.e. in a directed manner. The authorization of the Board covers both the issue of new shares and the assignment of any shares that may be held in the companyâs treasury.
The authorization is effective until the end of the Annual General Meeting held in 2023, yet no further than until June 30, 2023. This authorization shall supersede the issue authorization granted at the Annual General Meeting of March 17, 2022.
Proposal by the Board of Directors for distribution of profit
The Groupâs profit for the financial year 2022 was EUR 21,752,822.72 and the parent Companyâs profit was EUR 17,686,519.09. The parent Companyâs distributable assets on December 31, 2022, amounted to EUR 83,847,203.60. The Board will propose to the Annual General Meeting of March 23, 2023, that the parent Companyâs distributable assets are used in such a way that a dividend of EUR 0.36 (0.34) per share, total EUR 9,605,201.76, be paid out for the number of shares on December 31, 2022 with the remaining distributable assets to be added to equity.
The Board of Directors finds that the proposed distribution of profit does not endanger the liquidity of the parent Company or the Group.
