What else happened for Reece last period?

Management commentary

Speaking on the results, Reece Group CEO, Peter Wilson said:

We have navigated another year of disruption and change in FY22 to deliver a very strong result, demonstrating the resilience of our business. Despite being hit by ongoing challenges, the team successfully navigated the ongoing pandemic, supply chain constraints and natural disasters to continue delivering for our customers, who were busier than ever.

Looking ahead, we believe we are past the peak of the cycle in our end markets and are prepared for
softening conditions. The macro setting is complex and will require careful management, but Reece has a strong track record of managing and investing to improve its business through the cycle.
