SURTECO GROUP SE: Preliminary sales and earnings for the 2020 financial year - expectations are significantly exceeded


Buttenwiesen, 29 January 2021

The sales and earnings development of SURTECO GROUP SE was better than expected in the 4th quarter of 2020. According to preliminary figures, sales in Q4 are above the value of the previous year and earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) are significantly above the previous year.

Cumulatively for the full year 2020, Group sales are expected to be considerably below the original targets of € 675 million to € 700 million at around € 627 million, as forecast by SURTECO, due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. This figure nevertheless significantly exceeds analysts' estimates.

As part of the business analysis, the knowledge is condensed that the EBIT for the full year 2020 is expected to be above € 42 million and thus above the analysts' estimates and above the forecast of SURTECO. Due to the pandemic, the company was expected to generate EBIT that was well below the original target of € 40 to € 45 million. Essential for this were the successful implementation of the first phase of the restructuring, lower material costs and the surprisingly good business development in the fourth quarter.

SURTECO GROUP SE will publish the audited complete consolidated financial statements for the 2020 financial year on 30 April 2021.
