Fininvest Group - 2021 Financial Statements

Press release of 29-06-2022





EBIT: EUR 373.8 MILLION (+79%)



(EUR 141 MILLION IN 2020)







Milan, 29 June 2022 - The Shareholders' Meeting of Fininvest S.p.A., held today and chaired by Marina Berlusconi, has approved the financial statements of the parent company and examined the consolidated financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2021.




The considerable uncertainties weighing down on this first part of 2022 on a global level cannot detract from the excellent results achieved by the Fininvest Group during 2021. 

Two main factors underlie these results: the positive economic and financial turnaround worldwide after the dramatic pandemic crisis, and the Group's ability to react to the crisis in a decisive and timely way on the efficiency and process improvement front, so as to be ready to seize the new opportunities that the overall recovery has created.

This favourable environment is significantly reflected in the Group's income statement, which shows a growth in revenues of more than 10%, a positive ebit of EUR 374 million (with profitability up from 6% to almost 10%) and a profit of around EUR 360 million more than doubled compared to 2020.

Furthermore, despite significant investments in strategic acquisitions by both MFE and Mondadori, in the last financial year, the Group recorded a marked improvement in the debt position with a surplus of over EUR 250 million, a figure that confirms a more than reassuring financial stability and allows further growth opportunities to be considered.










The main results for 2021 are as follows:



The Fininvest Group's consolidated revenues for the year 2021 amounted to EUR 3,817.9 million, an increase of 10.4% compared to the EUR 3,459.1 million in 2020 and substantially returning to pre-pandemic levels.


EBITDA was EUR 921.6 million (EUR 854.8 million in 2020).


Group EBIT was positive at EUR 373.8 million , up sharply (+79%) from EUR 209.1 million in 2020. The percentage on revenues rises to 9.8% (in 2020 it was 6%).

Consolidated net profit totalled EUR 360.2 million , more than doubled compared to EUR 141.2 million in 2020 and also a clear improvement on 2019 (EUR 220.3 million) .


The net financial position of the Fininvest Group as of 31 December 2021 (considering adjustment to IFRS 16) showed a debt of EUR 1,146 million compared to EUR 1,397 million as of 31 December 2020.


The financial surplus of EUR 251 million was achieved mainly thanks to a positive ordinary cash generation of EUR 733 million, a figure more than doubled compared to the already considerable amounts in 2020 and 2019.


In 2021, the Group made investments amounting to EUR 760.2 million (EUR 601 million in 2020).


Total consolidated shareholders' equity as at 31 December 2021 was EUR 4,892 million .























The separate net profit of the parent company Fininvest S.p.A. was EUR 361.2 million in 2021, compared to a loss of EUR 27 million in the previous year, which was impacted by the absence of the recognition of dividends from investees due to the pandemic .
