Alfen presents its next phase of profitable growth at the heart of the energy transition

ALMERE, THE NETHERLANDS – Alfen N.V. (AEX: ALFEN), a specialist in energy solutions for the future, tomorrow presents its strategy to drive profitable growth and its new financial objectives towards 2025 – 2027 at its Capital Markets Day in London.

Alfen’s Capital Markets Day will be held on May 10th from 08:30 – 13:00 (GMT) in London as an in-person event, and the company will provide an update on its strategy, as well as share new financial objectives for the medium term (2025-2027).

Medium-term (financial) objectives

Alfen has two new medium-term (financial) objectives that it plans to achieve between 2025-2027:

  1. A revenue of at least 1 billion euros per annum and
  2. An adjusted EBITDA margin in the range of 15 -20%.

Alfen also sets five qualitative objectives to achieve/maintain over the medium term that reflect its strategic priorities:

  1. Outperform the market in each of its business lines
  2. Adopt SBTi-approved CO2 targets
  3. Maintain an asset light business model
  4. Remain at the forefront of technology with innovative solutions
  5. Grow and educate its people

Marco Roeleveld, CEO of Alfen, said:

“We have proven that we can deliver profitable growth since our IPO in 2018. At that time, we set 4 financial objectives and we achieved 3 of the objectives in 2022: revenue growth, profitability and internalisation.

Since 2018, a lot has changed at Alfen. We matured really quickly. We now have local sales presence in 13 European countries and products installed in 30+ European countries. Our customer base is much more diversified with our top 5 customers accounting for 25% of our revenue in 2022 (vs 52% in 2018). We expanded our production footprint and grew from 410 FTEs at 31 December 2018 to 893 FTE at 31 December 2022. We set the stage for the next wave of profitable growth.

What has not changed is our place at the heart of the energy transition. With our Smart grid solutions, EV charging and Energy storage systems business lines, we are very well positioned to benefit from the acceleration of the energy transition, especially as more stimulative policy has come from the European Union. All of our markets remain to have favourable long-term growth outlooks.  

We are excited to provide an update on our medium-term strategy and related objectives to the Capital Markets.”

Financial objectives are internal objectives of Alfen to measure its operational performance and should not be read as indicating that Alfen is targeting such metrics for any particular financial year. The ability of Alfen to achieve these financial objectives is inherently subject to significant business, economic and competitive uncertainties and contingencies, many of which are beyond the control of Alfen and upon assumptions with respect to future business decisions that are subject to change. As a result, the actual results of Alfen may vary from these financial objectives, and those variations may be material.

Alfen's revenue outlook estimates are management estimates resulting from Alfen's pursuit of its strategy. Alfen can provide no assurances that the estimated future revenues will be realised and the actual revenue for the financial years referred to in this presentation could differ materially. The expected revenues have also been determined based on assumptions and estimates that Alfen considered reasonable at the date these were made. These estimates and assumptions are inherently uncertain and reflect management's views which are also based on its historic success of being assigned projects, which may materially differ from the success rates for any future projects. These estimates and assumptions may change as a result of uncertainties related to the economic, financial or competitive environment and as a result of future business decisions of Alfen or its clients, such as cancellations or delays, as well as the occurrence of certain other events.
