The Group continues to operate in an environment of elevated uncertainty arising from the ongoing global pandemic and global supply chain disruption.

Accordingly, the Group continues to invest in its assets, brands and people in line with our strategic goal to build a leading global Super Premium wine company.
Delegat plans to grow sales by 25% to 3,976,000 cases over the next three years. The primary driver of planned growth is Oyster Bay sales in North America. With respect to the 2022 year, Delegat plans to grow sales by 8% to 3,419,000 cases and forecasts. Operating Net Profit after Tax to be in the range of $57 to $61 million. The forecast Operating Net Profit After Tax is lower than this year’s result due to the impact of the lower yielding 2021 vintage and higher grape prices resulting in an increased cost of goods per case, unfavourable exchange rate movements, higher freight costs and the recurrence of operating expenses suspended due to Covid-19 restrictions. The Group will continue to closely monitor and manage the potential impact of ongoing supply chain disruption including port congestion and shipping line capacity constraints, noting that these factors present some risk to the achievement of forecast case sales in 2022.
