Frans van Houten, CEO of Royal Philips:

“In the fourth quarter, we recorded EUR 4.9 billion sales, reflecting a 10% comparable sales decline, with an Adjusted EBITA margin of 13.1%. As we announced on January 12, 2022, sales were impacted by several headwinds, namely supply chain challenges, postponement of equipment installations in hospitals related to COVID-19, and the consequences of the Respironics field action.

Our strategy and portfolio continue to resonate very well with customers and consumers, generating good demand for our products and solutions. For the full year, I am pleased with the 8% comparable sales growth in the Diagnosis & Treatment businesses and 9% growth in the Personal Health businesses. Connected Care sales declined, resulting in a 1% comparable sales decrease for the Group. The aforementioned headwinds had a combined impact of 5 percentage-points on the Group’s full year comparable sales.
