SAP Presents Quarterly Report for the First Nine Months of 2022
Heidelberg, October 27, 2022 – SNP Schneider-Neureither & Partner SE (ISIN: DE0007203705), a leading global provider of solutions for digital transformation processes and software-based data migrations, has today published its report for the first nine months of 2022. Sales reached € 124.9 million and thus increased by € 3.2 million (9M 2021: € 121.7 million). In like-for-like terms*, sales increased more significantly, by around 9%. All regions contributed to this growth. Earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) reached € 1.9 million and were thus slightly higher than the previous year’s level of € 1.8 million. The EBIT margin was 1.5%.
“We continue to be on a growth course with strong partner business. Despite the difficult conditions in general, our order situation is still good overall. This confirms our excellent market position, which is centered on our CrystalBridge software platform,” says Michael Eberhardt, CEO of SNP SE. “We are well-positioned for the further development of our company with our ELEVATE strategy program. Transformation processes and data management remain essential to our company’s long-term success. We will thus continue to forge ahead on our medium-term path of growth, and we expect an additional growth spurt in the fourth quarter of 2022.”
In the third quarter of 2022, SNP continued implementation of its ELEVATE growth strategy, which was initiated in the first half of the year. This provides for an increase in the software and partner business in particular. Revenue in the software business (incl. software revenue and EXA) of € 37.0 million was slightly higher than in the previous year. However, there were more partner contracts with software quotas that immediately impacted revenue and earnings in the previous year, which resulted in a roughly € 4 million reduction in revenue in the 2022 fiscal year. Adjusted for these “up-front” contracts, the Software business segment grew by around 12%. Revenue achieved through partner companies increased significantly (around 56%) and reached a volume of around € 35.2 million (2021: € 22.6 million); this represents an overall revenue share of approximately 28% (2021: 19%).
The current uncertain economic environment continues to make itself felt in order entry. Customers are placing orders at shorter notice and as individual projects. Even so, thanks to SNP’s good positioning on the market, it won seven major orders with a volume of at least € 1 million in the third quarter. The overall order entry volume is 1% higher year-over-year and amounts to € 40.1 million (Q3 2021: € 39.7 million). Order entry in the first nine months of 2022 totaled € 122.7 million, around 7 % below the figure for the same period in the previous year (9M 2022: € 131.6 million). In like-for-like terms*, however, order entry increased more significantly, by around 7%. In addition, order entry in the strategically important partner business rose by around 26% to € 39.5 million.
Despite the challenging market environment, the management expects to see stronger growth momentum in the fourth quarter, as in recent years. Against the backdrop of the challenging environment and the current order situation, SNP has updated the annual forecast for 2022.
For 2022 as a whole, SNP expects the following for the SNP Group:
