Berentzen-Gruppe Aktiengesellschaft: Interim Report for Q1 2022 / Preliminary business figures as of March 31, 2022
The significant increase in revenues in the first quarter of the 2022 financial year is due to the mostly less restrictive Corona regulations compared to the same period of the previous year. The consolidated EBIT, which increased by EUR 0.7 million compared to the first quarter of the 2021 financial year and thus more than doubled, is the result of an improved gross profit despite first energy and material price increases that have already occurred.
For the further course of the 2022 financial year, the company continues to expect high, significantly increasing cost burdens as early as the second quarter as a result of massive energy and material price increases as well as disrupted supply chains due to the effects of the global coronavirus pandemic and the war in Ukraine. Against this background, the company is maintaining unchanged the forecast for the 2022 financial year with respect to the income-related performance indicators published at the beginning of February 2022 and with the 2021 Annual Report at the end of March 2022. According to this forecast, the Berentzen Group expects a normalised consolidated EBIT in a range of EUR 5.0 million to EUR 8.0 million (2021: EUR 6.7 million), a normalised consolidated EBITDA in a range of EUR 14.0 million to EUR 17.0 million (2021: EUR 15.4 million) and consolidated revenues in a range of EUR 154.0 million to EUR 162.0 million (2021: EUR 146.1 million) for the financial year 2022.
The preliminary business figures for the first quarter of the 2022 financial year of Berentzen-Gruppe Aktiengesellschaft are subject to review by the Supervisory Board's Finance and Audit Committee. The final business figures and further information on the first quarter of the 2022 financial year will be published as scheduled on May 3, 2022 with the Interim Report for Q1 2022.
