2024 Outlook


AoFrio is maintaining its 2024 guidance.


Revenue in FY24 is expected in the range $70m to $80m, a 13% increase over FY23 at the midpoint of the range. AOF’s EBITDA guidance for FY24 is targeting around $2.5m. Macroeconomic conditions may impact this guidance. AOF continues to manage its investment in growth (mainly additional staff) to align with trading conditions and expects to be able to continue expanding through internally generated cashflows.
