Omniva: Revenue from the holiday season was lower than expected

Omniva Group’s total sales revenue amounted to 131.7 million euros in 2023, which is a 7% increase compared to the previous year. 

While the Group’s net profit before the income tax was positive, the inclusion of the income tax, resulting from over 6 million euros of paid dividends throughout the year, amounted to a net loss of 1.3 million euros.

Sixty per cent of the sales revenue, or 79.1 million euros, was generated from package service profits; 21%, or 28.1 million euros, from postage service profits (including around 10%, or 12.6 million euros, from universal postage service profits); and 16%, or 21.2 million euros, from international transit profits. Estonian clients accounted for 41% of the sales revenue. Following them were Lithuania with 16%, Latvia with 11%, and other countries with a combined 22%.

The main expenses came from providing traditional postage services. A significant negative impact on business revenue was also generated by expenses related to traditional post and daily newspaper delivery services. To cover losses from traditional postage services, Omniva is making an effort to expand the profitable package services business, which we currently offer in the Baltic, and international transit, where possible.

“Revenue from the holiday season was lower than expected, as indicated in the sales report for the fourth quarter,” said Omniva Chairman of the Board Mart Mägi. “Purchases from e-commerce platforms were more equally distributed throughout the year than they were last year, and the sharp increase in sales before Christmas was also smaller than last year. Omniva’s activities are increasingly influenced by strong competitors, which is why we have to increase our efforts to be the preferred partner for our clients within a competitive price range. To achieve this, we have to maintain a high service quality while optimising cost-efficiency. We have implemented changes in the company to encompass the entire Baltic region. This allows us to approach the entire domestic market with shared values and carry out necessary changes with reduced costs in both time and money.”

Significant Omniva activities in the fourth quarter

In the fourth quarter, Omniva opened seven renovated post offices in Estonia. Eighty new parcel machines were set up in the Baltics.

In the fourth quarter, Omniva invested over 500,000 euros in new sorting infrastructure at the Riga terminal, improving the company’s sorting capabilities in Latvia by 30%. The new sorting line makes it possible to process packages quicker and more efficiently, allowing for the sorting of up to 6000 packages per hour. Construction works on a new sorting centre in Kaunas continued, and it is set to start operations in the third quarter of 2024.

Omniva also signed a long-term collaboration contract with the Estonian VOOL startup company to procure 300 electric car chargers within five years. By the end of 2023, the first 50 chargers were installed in Tallinn, Tartu, Kuressaare and Rakvere. Currently, a little less than 10% of the Omniva fleet consists of electric vehicles. In the coming years, there are plans to actively increase the number of electric vehicles. Other major activities include route optimisation and the implementation of other sustainable solutions.

Along with the Bank of Estonia, Omniva organised the million coin collection campaign at Järve post office in Tallinn and Kvartal post office in Tartu. The campaign allowed for people to exchange small-value euro coins for larger currency denominations.

The consolidated fourth-quarter interim report for 2023 has been published on the Omniva homepage.
