Munich, April 25, 2022 – The Supervisory Board of Allgeier SE (ISIN DE000A2GS633, WKN A2GS63) approved the audited annual and consolidated financial statements of Allgeier SE for the fiscal year 2021 at its meeting today. The annual financial statements are thus adopted. The final figures for the Allgeier Group essentially correspond to the preliminary figures published in the ad hoc announcement of March 10, 2022.
Revenue and earnings development 2021 in continuing operations
In fiscal year 2021 (January 1, 2021 – December 31, 2021), the Allgeier Group generated a total operating performance of EUR 404.3 million in continuing operations (previous year: EUR 352.6 million), corresponding to an increase of 15 percent. Gross profit increased to EUR 129.2 million (previous year: EUR 101.9 million), leading to a further expansion of the gross margin to 31.9 percent (previous year: 28.9 percent). The Group increased adjusted EBITDA (EBITDA before effects that qualify as extraordinary or relating to other accounting periods) by 49 percent year-on-year to EUR 45.1 million (previous year: EUR 30.3 million). EBITDA amounted to EUR 38.3 million, up 64 percent on the previous year (EUR 23.4 million). The Group thus achieved EBIT of EUR 19.8 million (previous year: EUR 7.1 million), corresponding to a year-on-year increase of 180 percent. Earnings before taxes (EBT) amounted to EUR 20.2 million (previous year: EUR 8.2 million) and were thus 146 percent higher than in the previous year. After income taxes, the Group achieved earnings for the period of EUR 12.5 million (previous year: EUR 1.1 million). This resulted in earnings per share of EUR 1.04 in fiscal 2021 (previous year: EUR 0.00). Earnings per share from continuing operations, adjusted for amortization from acquisition activities and based on a normalized tax rate of 30 percent, amounted to EUR 1.80 for the reporting year 2021 (previous year: EUR 0.94).
Key balance sheet data as of December 31, 2021
As of the balance sheet date December 31, 2021, consolidated equity amounted to EUR 162.9 million (previous year: EUR 105.5 million). The Allgeier Group had cash and cash equivalents of EUR 69.4 million at the end of 2021 (previous year: EUR 60.8 million). Interest-bearing financial liabilities (excluding liabilities from rental and lease agreements) amounted to EUR 138.4 million (previous year: EUR 28.6 million). The main reason for the increase is the financing of the acquisitions executed in 2021. Total assets amounted to EUR 485.0 million (previous year: EUR 243.9 million).
Appropriation of profits
The Management Board and Supervisory Board have resolved to propose to the Annual General Meeting the payment of a dividend of EUR 0.50 per eligible share from the unappropriated retained earnings of Allgeier SE as of December 31, 2021, amounting to EUR 46,840,573.23. The Annual General Meeting of Allgeier SE will be held virtually on June 30, 2022.
The acquisitions are consolidated in the Group from the date of acquisition (closing). The acquisition of the Evora Group in December 2021 is consolidated as of December 31, 2021. This means that this acquisition does not yet have any effect on the income statement for 2021, but the initial consolidation is reflected in the statement of financial position as of December 31, 2021, including the acquisition transaction.
The 2021 Annual Report of Allgeier SE will be published on April 29, 2022, and can then be viewed at www.allgeier.com.
