Preliminary figures show net result after taxes above forecast and market expectation for financial year 2022/2023

Heidelberg, April 26, 2023 / 6:23 p.m. CEST

According to preliminary (unaudited) results, Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG's net result after taxes for the past financial year 2022/2023 (April 1, 2022 to March 31, 2023) is expected to exceeded the company´s forecast and the market expectation. The forecast for sales and EBITDA margin is expected to be slightly exceeded in each case.

The Executive Board therefore expects a positive net result after taxes of around € 90 million for financial year 2022/2023. This is around € 24 million above market expectation, which had already exceeded the company´s forecast in the course of the financial year. The reasons for this are on the one hand the higher absolute EBITDA (including non-recurring items) and on the other hand one-time benefits in the financial and tax results.

Expected sales is around € 2.4 billion, slightly above the target of around € 2.3 billion. The expected EBITDA margin is around 8.5 %, which is also slightly above the forecast of more than 8 %.

The Company will publish its financial statements and annual report for financial year 2022/2023 on June 14, 2023.
