We saw rapid growth in a number of our end-markets as global economies recovered from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Financial KPIs (statutory and adjusted performance KPIs)
Throughout the Annual Report, including the Strategic Report, adjusted measures are used to describe the Group’s financial performance. These adjusted measures are not recognised under IFRS or other generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). These measures are shown because the Directors consider they provide useful information to shareholders, including additional insight into ongoing trading and year-on-year comparisons. These non-GAAP measures should be viewed as complementary to, not replacements for, the comparable GAAP measures. Throughout this Report these non-GAAP measures are clearly identified by an asterisk (*) where they appear in text, and by a footnote where they appear in tables and charts. Definitions and reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to the relevant GAAP measures can be found in the Group Financial Review on pages 57 to 59 of the full annual report.
We delivered robust revenue growth in 2022 reflecting growing markets and the benefits of our strategy. Despite the well-documented supply challenges and disruptions, we successfully worked with our customers and suppliers to maintain operational service levels.
