- Group revenue decreases to € 33.1 million in Q1 2021 (-3.8% compared to Q1 2020)
- Segments with different development: Software +7.5%, Service -7.9
- EBIT improves to € -2.7 million (Q1 2020: € -3.9 million)
- Order entry rises by around 10% to €52.5 million
- Order backlog increases by more than a quarter

Heidelberg, 29 April 2021 - SNP Schneider-Neureither & Partner SE (ISIN: DE0007203705), a world-leading provider of solutions for digital transformation processes and software-based data migrations, today published its report for the first quarter of 2021, confirming the preliminary figures. According to this, consolidated revenue fell by 3.8% to € 33.1 million compared with the same quarter of the previous year (Q1 2020: € 34.4 million), which was not yet affected by the consequences of the COVID 19 pandemic. The individual segments developed very differently: While revenue in the Software segment increased by 7.5% to € 9.8 million (Q1 2020: € 9.1 million) due to the continuing good demand, the restraint in some industries were felt in the Service segment, especially at the beginning of the year. Here, revenue fell by 7.9% to € 23.3 million (Q1 2020: € 25.3 million). The operating result (EBIT) improved by around a third to € -2.7 million in the same period (Q1 2020: € -3.9 million). This is mainly due to a more efficient cost structure. In addition, the acquisition of EXA AG in February 2021 had a positive effect. Accordingly, the net result for the period also improved to € -2.5 million in the traditionally weaker first quarter, compared to € -3.4 million in the same period of the previous year.

"Although we recorded a decline in revenue in the first quarter due to Corona, we were able to significantly improve our net result for the period. The development of order entry and order backlog also show that the market is slowly picking up again and that we are therefore sticking to our growth plans for this year," says Michael Eberhardt, CEO of SNP SE.

Order entry increased by around 10% to € 52.5 million in the first quarter of 2021 (Q1 2020: €47.7 million). The Software segment accounted for € 22.0 million, which represents 42% of total order entry (Q1 2020: € 16.7 million or 35%). The Service segment accounted for € 30.5 million or 58% of order intake (Q1 2020: € 31.0 million or 65%).

The order backlog reached a value of € 133.9 million at the end of the first quarter of 2021 and was thus around a quarter higher than in the same period of 2020 (March 31, 2020: € 106.2 million).

The number of employees as of March 31, 2021 was 1,588 (December 31, 2020: 1,463) which is mainly attributable to the acquisition of EXA AG in February 2021.

Outlook confirmed
For fiscal 2021, the company continues to expect revenue growth to between € 160 million and € 180 million based on a global increase in willingness to invest. Revenue in each of the company's business segments, Service and Software, will be significantly higher than in the previous year. Depending on the progress of the global measures to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, the target for the EBIT margin is 5% to 8%, and thus EBIT significantly higher than the previous year. The order entry volume will continue to pick up in 2021 and is expected to be significantly higher than the previous year. No M&A transactions are considered in the forecast for the current fiscal year due to uncertainties.
