ALLGEIER SE / Key word(s): 9 Month figures
25-Oct-2021 / 15:28 CET/CEST
Munich, October 25, 2021 – According to preliminary figures, Allgeier SE (ISIN DE000A2GS633, WKN A2GS63) achieved revenue growth of 11 percent in the first nine months of 2021 (January 01, 2021 – September 30, 2021) with a significantly disproportionate increase in earnings. In the third quarter of 2021, the Group increased sales by 17 percent. The adjusted EBITDA margin grew to 11 percent in the third quarter.
Business performance of continuing operations in the first nine months of 2021
In total, revenue from continuing operations of the Allgeier Group increased by 11 percent to Euro 291.2 million in the first nine months of 2021 compared to the first nine months of 2020 (previous year: Euro 263.1 million). Gross profit (defined as total operating performance less cost of sales and personnel expenses directly attributable to sales) increased by 19 percent to Euro 89.3 million in this period (previous year: Euro 74.9 million), corresponding to a gross margin of 31 percent. Adjusted EBITDA (earnings before depreciation, amortization and impairment losses on property, plant and equipment, interest and taxes, adjusted for extraordinary items and items relating to other periods) increased by 41 percent to Euro 28.7 million (previous year: Euro 20.3 million), corresponding to an adjusted EBITDA margin of 10 percent. The adjustments include in particular an extraordinary item from the second quarter of 2021 totaling Euro 6.1 million resulting from the measurement of 900,000 stock options issued in June 2021 with a term of ten years. This amount is allocated to personnel costs and thus reduces the earnings items in the second quarter of 2021, but is not cash-relevant as there is corresponding contingent capital for the subsequent exercise of the option rights. EBITDA grew by 53 percent to Euro 22.4 million in the reporting period after the extraordinary items (previous year: Euro 14.6 million). EBIT for the period (earnings before interest and taxes) amounted to Euro 9.5 million (previous year: Euro 3.5 million), corresponding to an increase of 172 percent. Adjusted EBIT for the first three quarters of 2021 amounted to Euro 17.7 million (previous year: Euro 9.9 million).
