Following its strategic review announced end of 2021, Ontex will align its 2022 reporting structure and has restated 2021 financial data accordingly. “Core Markets” encompass Europe, North America and some smaller partner and healthcare brand businesses elsewhere. These businesses form the core of Ontex’s activities and will be reported as continuing operations. “Emerging Markets” are primarily driven by own brands and essentially groups the Central and South American activities, as well as those in the Middle East and Africa. Ontex has announced it will pursue divestment opportunities for these and will thereby report these as assets held for sale and discontinued operations.
