The revenues of COMELF SA were RON 78 million in S1 / 2018 compared to RON 97 million in S1 / 2017, down 20%, having as main causes:

-assimilation in manufacturing of new products (clients: Terex, Rockster, Hencon, etc.); New products (prototype) require additional production preparation and longer execution times;

- Reducing the number of direct productive staff by 9% in the first six months of 2018 compared to the same period of the previous year;

- Outsourcing directly productive staff with optimal skills and productivity and recruitment of unqualified personnel, generated by the lack of qualified personnel on the local labor market, personnel directly transferred to the productive process without a minimum qualification period of 3 months of the need for work. This has led to a drop in labor productivity with a direct effect on revenue decline;

- low sales prices compared to the growing complexity of products and the rising cost of labor;

The company's gross result was negatively influenced by:

- current utilities rates;

-staff costs : + 5% over the operating income compared to the first 6 months of 2017, on the one hand generated by the productivity decrease as mentioned above, and by the lack of directly productive, qualified personnel, which generated additional work from the qualified, existing staff in order to fit within the delivery terms imposed by the clients. Additional labor is paid in double regime, according to the Labor Code, which has generated additional salary costs;

-the expenditures on services rendered by third parties that although decreased in percentage terms compared to the previous year but not at the same pace as the reduction of the incomes due to their fixed character, negatively affected the gross result of the period;
