From the current net income level of €222m and the final forecast of €269m by 2022, the annual rate of growth for KOJAMO’s earnings is -3.0%. However, if we exclude extraordinary items from earnings, we see that the profits is predicted to rise over time, resulting in an EPS of €1.06 in the final year of forecast compared to the current €0.93 EPS today. Earnings decline appears to be a result of cost outpacing top line growth of 4.8% over the next few years. But by the end of 2022, analysts are expecting slower cost growth, resulting in a margin expansion, from the recent 62% to 63%.
