In 2022Q1 Group’s revenue amounted to PLN 91,211 thousand and increased by 24.8% compared to 2021Q1 (PLN 73,083 thousand), mainly due to increase of revenue from management and operation of motorway (increased by 25%), including toll revenue (increased by 25%) on the toll section of A4 Katowice-Kraków motorway (see detail report here).

Taking into account the above described increase of revenue and costs, the cumulative gross profit in 2022Q1 amounted to PLN 52,963 thousand and achieved higher level (increased by 14.9%) than PLN 46,091 thousand in 2021Q1.
In comparison to 2021Q1 (PLN 1,379 thousand), Group’s other income in 2022Q1 (PLN 1,546 thousand) increased by 12.1%, mainly due to higher gain from the sale of tangible fixed assets and intangible assets. In the same period the Group recorded administrative expenses (PLN 12,167 thousand) at higher level (increased by 21.9%) than in Q1 of last year (PLN 9,984 thousand), mainly because of the increase in the costs of other external services.
