Comvita has revised its full-year revenue and earnings forecast due to weaker consumer sentiment in China, a customer change in the US, and a non-cash foreign exchange translation loss.

The company's revenue for the first half of the 2023-24 financial year is expected to be $103 million, down 8.1% compared to the same period last year.

Unaudited earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortisation (EBITDA) for the first half are anticipated to be $9.5m, a 32% decrease year-on-year.

Comvita now expects its full-year revenue to be in the range of $225m to $235m, lower than the previous guidance of $245m to $255m.

The forecast for reported EBITDA after the ERP investment has also been adjusted to $30m to $35m, down from $33m to $38m.

The company's management remains committed to its strategic plan and believes the current performance is revenue-related and short-term.
