Munich, November 07, 2023 – Allgeier SE (ISIN DE000A2GS633, WKN A2GS63) achieved revenue growth of 4 percent in the first nine months of 2023 (January 1, 2023 – September 30, 2023) compared to the first nine months of the previous year according to preliminary figures and increased its gross profit disproportionately by 9 percent. The fast-growing Software and IT Services business units achieved significant sales growth of more than 20 percent. The personnel services business is bundled in an integrated business unit in order to develop it further as a separate business unit. Allgeier is thus continuing the transformation of its business towards higher added value.
Business performance in the first nine months of 2023
In total, Allgeier Group’s revenue rose by 4% to EUR 363 million in the first nine months of 2023 compared to the first nine months of the previous year (previous year: EUR 351 million). Of this amount, EUR 248 million (previous year: EUR 203 million) were attributable to the software and IT services business and EUR 115 million (previous year: EUR 148 million) to the personnel services business. Gross profit (defined as total operating performance less cost of sales and personnel expenses directly attributable to sales) increased by 9% to EUR 121 million in this period (previous year: EUR 111 million), corresponding to a gross margin of 33% (previous year: 31%). Adjusted EBITDA decreased by 3% to EUR 40 million (previous year: EUR 41 million). The cost-cutting measures already adopted will have a significant impact in the 2024 financial year.
Guidance for the 2023 financial year
Due to the more subdued business development in the course of the first nine months and a stronger reduction in personnel services revenues compared to the original planning, Allgeier is adjusting its guidance for the 2023 financial year as follows: Allgeier SE expects revenue in the region of EUR 490 million and an adjusted EBITDA of around EUR 60 million for the Group as a whole. The software and IT services business will account for revenues of around EUR 340 million and an adjusted EBITDA before holding company costs of around EUR 62 million. The personnel services business will account for revenues of around EUR 150 million and an adjusted EBITDA before holding company costs of around EUR 5 million. Holding company costs will amount to around EUR 7 million.
