    Preliminary business results for 2020: secunet closes financial year with outstanding results

    DGAP-News: secunet Security Networks AG / Key word(s): Annual Results/Preliminary Results22.01.2021 / 08:00 The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.Preliminary business results for 2020: secunet closes financial year with outstanding results- Sales revenues increase by 26% to 285.6 million euros- EBIT improves by 55% to 51.6 million euros[Essen, 22 January 2021] secunet Security Networks AG (ISIN DE0007276503, WKN 727650), a leading German provider of high-quality, trustworthy IT security and IT security partner of the Federal Republic of Germany, publishes initial business results today for the past year 2020. Provisional calculations show that secunet Group generated sales revenues of 285.6 million euros. Compared to the previous year (226.9 million euros), this represents an increase of 26% or 58.7 million euros. Earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) amounted to 51.6 million euros, an improvement of 55% or 18.4 million euros on the previous year (33.2 million euros).The growth is largely the result of increased product turnover (trade goods, licences, maintenance and support) with the SINA product family, particularly SINA Workstation. In response to changes in the organisation of work as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, German authorities have accelerated the procurement of secure mobile workstations necessary for working at home or in a mobile office. The fourth quarter also closed with very good results in line with expectations: secunet Group achieved sales revenues of 96.6 million euros (prior-year quarter: 63.4 million euros) and an EBIT of 19.5 million euros (11.1 million euros)."At the beginning of the past financial year 2020, we expected sales revenues and EBIT to be slightly below the previous record level of 2019. Due to special effects, we achieved results in the financial year 2020 that clearly surpassed our own expectations," says Axel Deininger, CEO of secunet Security Networks AG. "However, we cannot yet assess whether these effects will continue into 2021 and whether the supplier situation will remain stable. The forecast for the current financial year 2021, which we announced to the market back in November, takes this into account."secunet will publish the annual report and the audited and certified annual financial statements for the Group and the Company on 19 March 2021. On 3 November 2020, the Management Board released its forecast for secunet Group for the current financial year 2021. The forecast envisages sales revenues of 260 million euros and an EBIT of around 38 million euros.Further information is available at www.secunet.com.

    secunet Security Networks AG: revenues and earnings up significantly year-on-year after the first nine months of 2020

    DGAP-News: secunet Security Networks AG / Key word(s): Quarterly / Interim Statement04.11.2020 / 08:00 The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.secunet Security Networks AG: revenues and earnings up significantly year-on-year after the first nine months of 2020[Essen, 4 November 2020] secunet Security Networks AG (ISIN DE0007276503, WKN 727650), a leading German provider of high-quality, trustworthy IT security and IT security partner of the Federal Republic of Germany, today publishes its Group Quarterly Statement as at 30 September 2020. Sales and EBIT increased compared to the previous year, the positive forecast at the end of the year is confirmed.In the period from January to September 2020, secunet Group achieved sales revenues of 189.0 million euros. Compared with the same period of the previous year (163.5 million euros), this represents an increase of 16% or 25.5 million euros. The growth in sales revenue results primarily from the increased product business (trade goods, licences, maintenance and support) in the Public Sector division.secunet Group achieved earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) of 32.1 million euros in the first nine months of 2020. This corresponds to an increase of 45% or 10.0 million euros on the EBIT in the same period of the previous year (22.1 million euros).Sales revenue in the Public Sector division, which is geared towards public clients, amounted to 163.7 million euros. Compared with the revenues in the same period of the previous year (112.6 million euros), this represents an increase of 45% or 51.1 million euros. The substantial sales growth in the Public Sector division is related to special effects of the coronavirus pandemic: German authorities have pushed ahead with equipping their staff with secure mobile workplaces as needed for working in a mobile office setting. The growth is thus mainly attributable to high revenues in conjunction with products in the SINA family, particularly SINA Workstation. The Public Sector division contributed 87% to the Group's sales revenue (previous year: 69%). EBIT improved from 17.2 million euros in the first nine months of 2019 to 35.0 million euros in the same period of the current year.At the same time, sales revenue in the Business Sector division, which addresses its range of products and services towards companies in the private and healthcare sectors, fell in the period from January to September 2020 by 50% or 25.5 million euros from the prior-year level (50.9 million euros) to 25.4 million euros. The decline is primarily attributable to the fact that the rollout of healthcare connectors in medical practices in the previous year resulted in a very high level of sales. The Business Sector division's share in the Group's sales revenue was 13% (previous year: 31%). After the first nine months of 2020, the division's EBIT accordingly stood at -3.0 million euros, down from 4.8 million euros in the same period last year.As at 30 September 2020, the order book of secunet Security Networks AG in accordance with IFRS amounted to 112.0 million euros, compared with 71.2 million euros as at the previous year's reporting date."The digitalisation boost triggered by the coronavirus pandemic has had a distinctly positive impact on our business results," says Axel Deininger, CEO of secunet Security Networks AG. "Furthermore, the continued high and stable demand for secure mobile workplaces allows us to have a confident outlook on the current fourth quarter of 2020."The Management Board of secunet Security Networks AG has confirmed its forecast for 2020 for secunet Group: it continues to expect sales revenues of around 270 million euros and earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) of around 48 million euros (2019 financial year: sales revenues 226.9 million euros, EBIT 33.2 million euros). The current 2020 financial year is affected by positive special effects. In its forecast for the 2021 financial year, the key figures for which were published on 3 November 2020, the Management Board assumed that these positive special effects will no longer occur to a comparable degree. The forecast for the 2021 financial year therefore envisages sales revenues of around 260 million euros and an EBIT of around 38 million euros.The Group Quarterly Statement as at 30 September 2020 is available for downloading in the section Company / Investor Relations / Financial Reports and News at www.secunet.com.

    secunet Security Networks AG: forecast for the 2021 financial year

    secunet Security Networks AG / Key word(s): Forecastsecunet Security Networks AG: forecast for the 2021 financial year03-Nov-2020 / 18:15 CET/CESTDisclosure of an inside information acc. to Article 17 MAR of the Regulation (EU) No 596/2014, transmitted by DGAP - a service of EQS Group AG.The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.Publication of inside information pursuant to Article 17 MARsecunet Security Networks AG: forecast for the 2021 financial year [Essen, 3 November 2020] The Management Board of secunet Security Networks AG (ISIN DE0007276503, WKN 727650) today issued its forecast for the coming financial year 2021. The forecast envisages sales revenues of around 260 million euros and earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) of around 38 million euros for secunet Group in the 2021 financial year. This outlook thus lies below the forecast for the current financial year 2020, which is expected to close with sales revenues of around 270 million euros and an EBIT of around 48 million euros, the seventh financial year in succession with an increase over the respective previous year.In the current financial year 2020, secunet Security Networks AG has benefited from positive special effects in connection with the coronavirus pandemic, which were triggered in particular by public sector clients bringing forward and expanding their procurement of secure mobile workplaces. In addition, secunet is benefiting from government grants in the current financial year 2020 to a greater extent than in the 2019 financial year. In its forecast for the 2021 financial year, the Management Board has assumed that these positive special effects will no longer occur to a comparable degree.In the forecast, the Management Board has also taken into account the overall economic environment, which is generally characterised by uncertainty due to the coronavirus pandemic, and the possible risk of a further tightening of measures to combat the pandemic, which could also have negative effects on the business activities of secunet Security Networks AG.The forecast also makes allowance for an investment programme which was likewise approved by the Management Board today and which it is possible to implement thanks to the strong net assets and earnings situation of secunet Security Networks AG. The planned investments, which are expected to reach a high single-digit million amount, are primarily targeted at the areas of industrial security, eHealth and cloud security. They are intended to sustainably strengthen the Business Sector division.Contact:secunet Security Networks AGHead of Investor RelationsDr Kay RathkePhone: +49 201 5454 1221e-mail: kay.rathke@secunet.comsecunet Security Networks AGKurfürstenstrasse 5845138 Essen, GermanyISIN: DE0007276503WKN: 727650Listed: regulated market in Frankfurt (Prime Standard); OTC market in Berlin-Bremen, Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Hanover, Munich and StuttgartEnd of the communicationContactDr Kay RathkeHead of Investor RelationsPatrick FranitzaPress Spokesmansecunet Security Networks AGKurfürstenstrasse 5845138 Essen, GermanyPhone: +49 201 5454 1234Fax: +49 201 5454 1235e-mail: presse@secunet.comhttp://www.secunet.comAbout secunetsecunet is Germany's leading cybersecurity company.
