    DATAGROUP SE: DATAGROUP Shows Excellent Results for H1 2020/2021 and Has Significantly Raised its Guidance for the Current Fiscal Year

    DGAP-News: DATAGROUP SE / Key word(s): Half Year Results25.05.2021 / 07:30 The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.DATAGROUP Shows Excellent Results for H1 2020/2021 and Has Significantly Raised its Guidance for the Current Fiscal Year REVENUE +24.4 %; EBITDA; +28.1%; EPS +21.5 %STRONG ORGANIC GROWTH AND ACQUISITIONS LEAD TO EXCELLENT HALF-YEAR RESULTS - SUBSTANTIAL INCREASE IN GUIDANCE Pliezhausen, May 25, 2021. DATAGROUP SE (WKN A0JC8S) today publishes results for the first half of its fiscal year (01.10.2020 - 31.03.2021). The company's revenue has again grown significantly. Operating earnings figures increased disproportionately. Major drivers are organic growth with new customers as well as upselling among existing customers. Furthermore, the first full consolidation of Portavis contributed to the group's success.In the period under review revenue increased by 24.4 % to EUR 211.5m (PY EUR 170.0m). At 83.3 %, the proportion of service revenue remained on a comparatively high level as in the first half of the previous year (84.1 %). Operating earnings before taxes, interest, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) increased substantially by 28.1 % to EUR 30.3m in comparison to EUR 23.6m in the same period a year earlier. The EBITDA margin was up from 13.9 % in the prior year to 14.3 %.Earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) grew by 44.0 % to EUR 13.9m (PY EUR 9.6m). The EBIT margin improved by 6.6 % compared to 5.7 % in the prior-year period. EBT came in at EUR 12.8m (PY EUR 8.5m). Earnings per share (EPS) increased to EUR 1.30 (PY EUR 1.07).Based on the very good earnings figures, equity increased from EUR 66.2m on September 30, 2020 by EUR 14.1m to EUR 80.3m. The equity ratio improved from 17.2 % on September 30, 2020 to 21.0 % on March 31, 2021. This is attributable to the generated net income of EUR 10.8m as well as other comprehensive income of EUR 3.3m - which mainly relates to the revaluation of pension provisions due to changes in the actuarial interest rate. Another positive effect results from the suspension of dividend payouts for the last fiscal year.The development of the operating cash flows (OPEX) was particularly satisfying. This figure came in at EUR 23.9m, while it was EUR -3.1m in the corresponding reference period. In the prior-year period, OPEX was strongly burdened by expenses related to the commissioning of new customer systems in the financial services sector. Investments in property, plant and equipment and intangible assets (CAPEX) declined from EUR 12.0m to EUR 3.3m. The free cash flow improved significantly by EUR 35.4m to EUR 21.0m (PY EUR -14.4m).Coronavirus Pandemic Speeds up DigitalizationThe very positive development in the first half of the new fiscal year was driven organically by the commissioning of new customer systems and, in some cases, significant additional sales to existing customers. In the first half of the year, 14 customers have opted for the CORBOX for the first time, and we increased our upselling success in 15 cases. A particular highlight in the first half of the year was the conclusion of a large multi-year contract with HELLA.It was particularly gratifying to see that public authorities have significantly accelerated their digital transformations which led to additional sales. We are particularly proud of the roll-out of the digital infrastructure for 60 vaccination centers in Baden-Württemberg. It took a mere four weeks from the first offer to the start of the productive roll-out of the modern and highly secure solution. Within a few weeks, area-wide infrastructure was set up and the workplaces were put into operation so that the vaccination facilities were ready to implement the vaccination campaign within a very short time. DATAGROUP also generated interesting new business in the area of automation and artificial intelligence. The order books are well filled and DATAGROUP is very optimistic about the future. "Our business model of operating the engine room of digitalization with our CORBOX has proven to be extremely robust especially in this current time of crisis", says Max H.-H. Schaber, CEO of DATAGROUP. "Many of our customers have successfully adapted their ways of working to the changing circumstances during the pandemic by letting their employees work from home in a fully transparent way and thus being able to successfully pursue their economic activities during the lockdown as well", Max H.-H. Schaber continues. Restructuring of DATAGROUP Financial IT Services Is Well on TrackThanks to decisive action the cost situation has been significantly improved within just a couple of months, prices for certain services have been adjusted and productivity has been increased. Additionally, new orders have been received from existing customers, which is evidence of a higher customer confidence.DATAGROUP also has made another acquisition in the financial services sector: The company recently has signed a sales agreement to acquire 100 % of the shares in dna Gesellschaft für IT Services mbH. dna has 104 employees and is specialized in providing services in IT infrastructures and IT applications.The company's expertise lies in the area of IT administration. This includes network management, managed client services, application operation and user administration as well as industry-specific technical assistance. The company's offering is rounded off by consulting services for integration processes to implement new systems and applications and by support services for software development processes of customers and serviced institutes.dna has grown significantly over the last few years and has generated revenues in the high single-digit million euro ranges in the current fiscal year. The company is a preferred partner of the central IT service provider of the savings bank association and provides the cross-country support of the savings banks throughout Germany. This opens up new potential for DATAGROUP in the area of savings banks. Participation in URANODATAGROUP has signed a participation agreement to initially acquire 70 % of the shares in URANO Informationssysteme GmbH which is based in Bad Kreuznach. The contract provides that the remaining 30 % should be purchased in two years. DATAGROUP thus massively strengthens its business with high-quality IT services in the Rhineland-Palatinate and Hesse regions.URANO has roughly 300 employees providing IT services for private sector and public sector organizations. URANO serves a variety of customers headquartered in Germany. For many years, the company has been a reliable partner for public authorities in Rhineland-Palatinate and Hesse.

The existing shareholders have agreed on a long-term cooperation for the time after the transition phase.

    DATAGROUP SE: DATAGROUP Acquires a Stake in URANO Informationssysteme GmbH

    DGAP-News: DATAGROUP SE / Key word(s): Investment 06.05.2021 / 16:00 The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement. DATAGROUP Acquires a Stake in URANO Informationssysteme GmbH DATAGROUP strengthens footprint in Rhineland-Palatinate and Hesse by taking a stake in URANO, a large mid-market IT service provider. Pliezhausen, May 6, 2021. On Thursday, May 6, DATAGROUP SE (WKN A0JC8S) has signed a participation agreement with the shareholders of URANO Informationssysteme GmbH based in Bad Kreuznach. DATAGROUP thus massively strengthens its business with high-quality IT services in the Rhineland-Palatinate and Hesse regions. URANO has roughly 300 employees providing IT services for private sector and public sector organizations. The company is expected to generate revenues of some EUR 50m in the current fiscal year (01.01.-31.12.2021). URANO serves a variety of customers headquartered in Germany. For many years, the company has been a reliable partner for public authorities in Rhineland-Palatinate and Hesse and recently provided significant support in setting up and running the vaccination centers in Hesse. This customer structure ideally supplements DATAGROUP's focus on predominantly Mittelstand companies and complements it in regional terms. "The participation is another logical step in the development of DATAGROUP. URANO is a perfect addition to the group, and it has very good access to the authorities of the federal states of Rhineland-Palatinate and Hesse. We hope that URANO will provide significant growth momentum but also a much better regional footprint in the Rhine-Main region", comments Max H.-H. Schaber, CEO of DATAGROUP. Andreas Krafft, former majority owner and founder of URANO, comments: "In DATAGROUP we have found a partner who has the necessary scale and, at the same time, is a mid-market business with an owner-managed culture. This transaction has created the ideal conditions to further accelerate the strong growth of the two companies together. I am very convinced that this will guide the employees of URANO into the future." URANO has been focused on IT services for more than 30 years and now, as a part of the DATAGROUP family, can take advantage of additional services from the DATAGROUP portfolio. CORBOX - the core portfolio of DATAGROUP - enables URANO to offer additional in-house services which have not been provided before. The company will have access to topics such as SAP Services and Security Services for existing and new customers and will be able to substantially grow its business. "By taking over URANO, we add very interesting solutions to our portfolio, for instance for the school system", says Andreas Baresel, Chief Production Officer of DATAGROUP. "We have not offered such a mature comprehensive solution in this area to date. Furthermore, URANO will contribute to a better utilization of our central CORBOX production facilities." The transaction comprises 70 % of the shares in URANO Informationssysteme GmbH and a purchase option for the remaining 30 % of the shares after two years. This is to guarantee that the former management continues to work full-time while it also serves to support a smooth transition and soft integration of URANO into DATAGROUP. The existing shareholders have agreed on a long-term cooperation for the time after the transition phase. The acquisition will be wholly financed from own resources. The parties have agreed to keep the purchase price confidential. The transaction is subject to further closing conditions.
