“The diversified and expanded destination program in the region, as well as effective cost management, allow us to update the financial forecast for 2023. We expect EBITDA of EUR 4-6 million and net profit of EUR 2-4 million,” said Rakovski during a press video conference.
“The reason for the change in the forecast is primarily a strong first quarter […]. Of course, strong sales for the summer season is an additional factor to raise the forecast,” he added.
Rakovski also informed that the company attaches great importance to online sales and intends to implement a new website that will be based on new technology and will provide a completely new user experience. Its launch is planned for June.
