Information on the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic and the energy crisis on the Group

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Group incurred extraordinary expenses for tests, antiseptics, masks etc., which were fully offset by the reduction in operating expenses, mainly from the reduction in business travel and remote work.

During the second half of 2021, a significant increase in energy prices is being observed. This fact has not impacted the profitability of the Group in the nine months of 2021, as energy costs represent a small portion of total operating expenses.
