Agricover, a significant player in the agribusiness market in Romania, posts approximately RON 2.55 billion in revenues in 2022, a 50% increase compared to 2021 and a net result of RON 91.3 million, a 7% increase compared to 2021.


“Despite the many disruptions in the past three years, our group has demonstrated resilience through its business model and solid financial results. In 2022, we increased all business segments while we continued to prioritize our commitment to sustainable and responsible agriculture. Agricover’s success is due to our dedicated team on the ground that works closely with farmers to identify emerging digitalization, technology, and financing needs. By providing innovative and efficient solutions tailored to farmers’ needs, we can rapidly disseminate cutting-edge digital solutions and technologies to many farmers while cultivating awareness of the benefits of sustainable practices. The 2022 performance validates our ability to maximize the benefits arising from our synergistic business model, which leads to continuous and sustained results for our shareholders”, stated Liviu Dobre, CEO of Agricover Holding.

In 2022, Agricover continued to expand its client portfolio, providing agricultural inputs and financing to 9,949 clients, approximately one-third of whom benefited from services provided by both Agricover Distribution and Agricover Credit.

Regarding the financial results recorded at the level of each business segment, in 2022, Agricover Distribution continued consolidating its position in the agricultural input distribution market, recording RON 2.5 billion revenues from the sale of agricultural inputs such as certified seeds, plant protection products, plant nutrition products, biostimulants, and fuels. In 2022, the net result of Agricover Distribution was RON 39.6 million, a 16% increase compared to 2021.

For Agricover Credit, the gross carrying value of loans and advances to customers as of December 31, 2022, reached RON 2.84 billion, a 42% increase compared to the end of the previous year. The net result of Agricover Credit in 2022 was RON 65.4 million, a 19% appreciation compared to 2021. The rate of non-performing loans continued to be below the sector average, amounting to 2.9% as of December 31, 2022, compared to the agricultural sector average of 3.1% as of September 30, 2022 (according to the December 2022 Financial Stability Report, Year VII(XVII), no. 13(23), published by the NBR).

Over the past year, Agricover has continued to invest in business process automation and the digital future of agriculture through Agricover Technology. The Crop360 platform, which provides farmers with real-time, one-stop access to on-farm digital agriculture services and a digital engagement channel with the Agricover group, has been deployed on more than 3,000 farms since its launch in November 2021. The platform represents one of the investments made by the group in the research and innovation field to support farmers in Romania to become more competitive and agile, considering the accelerated transformations taking place in the agriculture sector at a global level.

In 2023, Agricover is considering the continuation of the digitalization of operations, developing the product portfolio sold under its brand, and diversifying funding sources. At the same time, the group will continue the structural and operational optimization process to ensure a continuous improvement of the financial performance of its business segments.
