“The first half result was ahead of expectations, underpinned by a strong performance across the Group. The half saw the completion of the final phase of our Victorian site consolidation initiative, the highly anticipated launch of our new e-commerce marketplace Lasoo, and the acquisition of major competitor Ovato.

Given unprecedented volatility in domestic energy markets, it is pleasing to announce our future partnership with global renewables company Iberdrola, with our power purchasing agreement (PPA) due to commence on 1 January 2024.”

IVE has provided the following guidance for FY23:

• Underlying EBITDA of around $120m
• Underlying NPAT of around $41m
• Capital expenditure is expected to be around $15m (excluding Ovato)
• Restructure and acquisitions costs are expected to be around $19m
