In that annual letter to shareholders Chairman Brian Scullen and Managing Director Albin Kurti made the following comments:
“Despite COVID-19 impacts, FY22 was another record year for Propel. The Company continued its track record of delivering revenue and earnings growth, with revenue growing by 20.6% to AUS $145.2 million (US$ 97.4 million), pro forma Operating EBITDA growing by 25.2% to $ AUS 39.0 million (US $26.18 million) and pro forma Operating NPAT growing by 45.0% to $AUS 16.9 million. . . . .
. . .Demand for death care services is expected to grow in Australia and New Zealand because of increasing death volumes due to population growth and ageing of the “baby boomers”. . . . .The Company believes there is significant opportunity for further consolidation in Australia and New Zealand and Propel is well positioned to capitalize on potential acquisition opportunities.”
