Frequentis AG: FREQUENTIS announces preliminary, unaudited figures for the 2020 financial year

EBIT significantly above analysts' expectations (Consensus) despite COVID-19

Vienna (pta026/03.02.2021/20:40 UTC+1) Increased digitalisation efforts such as project acceptance via video, virtual customer meetings, and webinars enabled the company to maintain revenue at around EUR 300 million (2019: EUR 303.6 million) according to the preliminary figures.

EBIT is expected to increase to around EUR 26 million according to the preliminary figures (2019: EUR 17.2 million). The full impairment of deposits in the amount of EUR 30.9 million already carried out in the first half of 2020 due to the insolvency of Commerzialbank Mattersburg is recognised in the financial result. Frequentis AG in Austria did not have to make use of Corona state aid.

Due to delays in the awarding process caused by the pandemic, some orders were postponed until 2021: Order intake was around EUR 315 million (2019: EUR 333.7 million). The expectation for orders on hand as at 31 December 2020 is more than EUR 400 million (31 December 2019: EUR 391.5 million).

The figures quoted are subject to the result of the audit of the consolidated financial statements. The final annual result for the full year 2020 will be published as planned on 7 April 2021.
