Trading update for the year ended 31 December 2020

18 February 2021

(London) Integrated Diagnostics Holdings ("IDH," "the Group," or "the Company"), a leading consumer healthcare company with operations in Egypt, Jordan, Sudan and Nigeria, released today a trading update for the year ended 31 December 2020 based on its unaudited financial results.

IDH expects to report revenues of approximately EGP 2.6 billion (ahead of previous management guidance of EGP 2.3 to 2.4 billion) with an EBITDA[1] margin in excess of 40%.

"IDH's strong performance in 2020 reflects the resilience of our business model and management's ability to swiftly adapt our service offering to changing dynamics," said Chief Executive Officer Dr. Hend El-Sherbini. "Following Covid-19-related disruptions early in the year, starting in the second half of 2020 we witnessed accelerated top-line growth which culminated in a robust fourth quarter as the business captured strong consumer demand across its portfolio. The return to double digit revenue growth for the year reinforces management's confidence in the strong fundamentals of our geographies and of our well-established position within these markets."

The Company's full-year and 4Q2020 results will reflect strong contribution from PCR and Covid-19-related[2] testing in Egypt and Jordan and the ramping up of IDH's house call services in both countries.
