SURTECO GROUP SE: Annual General Meeting approves dividend of € 1.00 per share

Munich, 7 June 2022 – At the virtual Annual General Meeting, the CEO of SURTECO GROUP SE explained the development in 2021 and the current business situation to the shareholders. Thanks to good business development after the turbulence caused by the pandemic in the previous year, the company was able to report the most successful financial year in the company's history in 2021. Sales increased to € 757 million and earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) to € 73 million. In this respect, the Supervisory Board and Management Board proposed increasing the dividend by 25% to € 1.00 per share, which was approved by the Annual General Meeting with a large majority. In addition, the remuneration report and an adjustment to the remuneration system for the members of the Management Board were approved.

The first quarter of 2022 was not yet significantly affected by the Russia-Ukraine conflict. In the months from January to March 2022, the company was able to increase sales again by 13% compared to the same quarter of the previous year to € 213 million. Quarterly EBIT fell by 6 % to € 20.2 million compared to the same quarter of the previous year, mainly due to the continued high raw material costs, which can only be passed on in part and with a time lag. However, this result is still at a very high level. For the year as a whole, however, the company expects a decline in demand due to the currently uncertain framework conditions. Group sales should be between € 730 and € 750 million and group EBIT between € 55 and € 65 million. This forecast is under the assumption of no further deterioration due to the Russia-Ukraine conflict and the supply chain problem.
