Sale of Livar

Sale of Livar

March 2023

The owners of Livar, one of the largest Slovenian foundries and the producer of ductile cast iron and mechanical processing, are considering its sale.  Livar generated sales revenues of EUR 67 million last year, which represents a 22% growth compared to 2021. In addition to higher product prices, the reorganisation of the sales portfolio and the increase in the share of higher value-added machined castings contributed to this sales growth, Livar explained. Cash flow from operating activities, one of the company’s key indicators of how much funds companies have left to repay loans, make investments and pay out profits, amounted to EUR 4.7 million. This was a good third more than the previous year. EBITDA is also an important indicator for determining the purchase price in acquisition transactions. Livar’s net profit almost doubled last year to EUR 2.62 million compared to 2021. Equity increased by over 27% to EUR 13.8 million in 2021, while financial liabilities decreased by around 10% to EUR 1.1 million.
