To facilitate the introduction of the new rules, only the consolidated primary financial statements and certain administrative information shall meet the ESEF requirements for the first year of application.

The ESEF postponement was adopted as a supplementary measure to help the recovery from the Covid- 19 pandemic
Campari Group managed ESEF by leveraging on a dedicated IT software, allowing to comply with the new regulation. In accordance with ESEF Regulation, Campari Group implemented the 2020 ESEF XBRL Taxonomy file as reference taxonomy for the 2021 annual accounts. This annual report is therefore ESEF compliant.

Full year 2021 results-Key highlights
Campari Group achieved double-digit sales organic growth in 2021 driven by continued strong and healthy brand momentum. Despite the challenges of logistic constraints and the initial effect of cost inflation towards the year end, full year 2021 results showed a strong recovery versus the year before and benefitted from also an overall increased consumption and penetration of its brands compared to pre-pandemic levels.
In terms of profitability, it achieved a strong EBIT (2) growth and margin expansion mainly driven by favourable sales mix and operating leverage thanks to strong topline growth, which enabled in particular sustained brand building investments to fuel strong brands.
Thanks to the very healthy cash flow generation driven by the solid business performance, Campari Group achieved a significant de-leverage with net debt to EBITDA-adjusted (2) ratio down to the current 1.6 times at year end.
The Board of Directors proposed a full year dividend of €0.06 per share.
