Bad Homburg (pta036/29.03.2022/14:42) -
The figures for 2021 as confirmed by the Supervisory Board and the auditor indicate that the SYZYGY GROUP generated sales of EUR 60.1 million and significantly boosted its profitability. The Group’s operating income of around EUR 6.4 million represents the best performance since the company was established.
Financial income was EUR -1.0 million, meaning that total net income after taxes is EUR 4.1 million. This corresponds to earnings per share of EUR 0.30.
Core German market
The Germany segment boosted its sales by 6 per cent to EUR 48.1 million; the share of sales generated in the core market was thus around 78 per cent. EBIT before write-downs of goodwill stood at EUR 6.7 million (2020: EUR 6.6 million), with operating profitability remaining unchanged over the previous year at 14 per cent. The reported EBIT of EUR 3.9 million in the Germany segment includes write-downs of goodwill amounting to EUR 2.8 million.
The confirmed figures now available show that the international companies continued to perform well in the 2021 financial year. UK sales increased by 13 per cent in the reporting period to reach EUR 7.8 million, with operating profitability of 12 per cent. Sales in Poland and the US, the other non-German markets, likewise saw strong gains of 18 per cent, coming in at EUR 5.5 million. The EBIT margin here was 21 per cent.
"The quality of digital content and experiences makes the difference, it is our top priority at all levels. This approach enabled us to continue winning many new clients in 2021, such as the German Federal Press Office, Frankfurt Book Fair, Miles & More, and iTaxi in Poland. As a result, our Group delivered strong performance overall in the past year," said Franziska von Lewinski, CEO of the SYZYGY GROUP.
