• Revenues of € 972.2 million expected following recovery process in fourth quarter
• Severe supply chain disruptions lead to additional costs in vehicle production
• EBIT also impacted by non-recurring effects and stands at € -10.5 million
• Strong order intake reaches new record level of € 1,230.0 million, order backlog significantly higher than consolidated revenues for the year
|GROUP KEY FIGURES||2021||2022 (preliminary)|
|Order intake||€ million||1,064.3||1,230.0|
|Order backlog as of December 31||€ million||1,145.2||1,469.7|
According to preliminary figures, the Rosenbauer Group generated revenues of € 972.2 million in 2022, which is basically the same level as in the previous year (2021: € 975.1 million). The CEEU, NISA and NOMA sales areas and the Preventive Fire Protection segment in particular succeeded in increasing their deliveries or project volumes. At the same time, recurring and intermittent material supply shortages created highly uncertain production conditions; and this, combined with significantly higher supplier prices for some items, compromised vehicle production. EBIT was negative at € -10.5 million, having also been impacted by non-recurring effects from the industry's leading trade show, Interschutz, and restructuring measures. The EBIT margin was -1%.
There was a slight improvement in the missing parts situation toward the end of the year. In particular, Rosenbauer started to receive more truck chassis again, enabling it to increase the number of vehicle completions. Consequently, it closed the fourth quarter of 2022 with revenues of € 321.0 million and EBIT of € 20.0 million, which is roughly the same as in the comparative period of the previous year. The expectation is that supply chain problems will continue to ease and material costs will stabilize by mid-year.
Factors including also the deconsolidation of the joint venture in Russia and higher financing costs resulted in earnings before taxes (EBT) of € -28.6 million (2021: € 28.9 million).
Demand for Rosenbauer's firefighting technology is extremely strong. This saw the order intake reach a new record level of € 1,230.0 million in the past year (2021: € 1,064.3 million), with all five sales areas and the Preventive Fire Protection segment recording clear increases. The order from the Berlin fire department, which following a one-year trial phase chose to purchase four more vehicles from the all-electric Revolutionary Technology (RT) model range, was especially pleasing. The order backlog of € 1,469.7 million as of December 31, 2022 (2021: € 1,145.2 million) was significantly higher than consolidated revenues for the year.
Assuming that the supply of truck chassis continues to improve, the Rosenbauer Executive Board anticipates revenues of over € 1 billion in 2023, while the EBIT margin is expected to improve by around four percentage points on the reporting year.
The above figures for 2022 are based on advance calculations in accordance with IFRS. The final figures for 2022 will be published on April 7, 2023.
