Financial position and key figures
In 2022, procurements under Hansel’s joint procurement contracts totalled €1,323 million (€1,052 million in 2021). The strong growth in joint procurement was partly due to the high prices in the energy category, which rose sharply following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. By contrast, most of the challenges caused by the pandemic have been overcome. Component shortages are causing some delays in ICT and vehicle procurement, for example, but travel and meeting service procurement projects have started to pick up speed after the long break.
The company’s net sales in 2022 totalled €14.3 million (€12.3 million in 2021). The net sales consisted of service fees for the use of contracts totalling €11.0 million (€9.2 million in 2021), sales of specialist services totalling €2.8 million (€2.6 million in 2021), as well as other service fees and revenue totalling €520,000 (€489,000 in 2021).
The operating result was –€59,000 (–€1,544,000 euros in 2021). The result for the 2022 accounting period was –€338,000 (–€1,252,000 in 2021). The losses spanning several years were planned and mostly a result of the fact that the costs of the reorganisation of the company and its ownership resulting from the merger on 2 September 2019 materialised right away, but significant additional profit was not accrued until later. The contracts tendered by Hansel before the merger could not be opened for new customers. The company’s financial items include changes related to investments; Hansel has no liabilities to financial institutions. Hansel made a profit in 2006–2017, but the years 2018–2022 were loss-making. In accordance with its articles of association, Hansel is a non-profit limited liability company. The financial position of the company is good.
