Carl Zeiss Meditec AG achieves increase in profit in first quarter 2020/21
Jena, January 19, 2021

Carl Zeiss Meditec AG (ISIN: DE0005313704) has achieved revenue of EUR 368.9 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2020/21 (previous year: EUR 369.7 million). This corresponds to a revenue development of -0.2% vs. the past year (after adjustment for currency effects[1]: +2.6%).

Earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT)[2] amounted to EUR 73.4 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2020/21 (previous year: EUR 56.8 million). EBIT margin (EBIT / revenue) was 19.9% (previous year 15.4%). EBIT development benefitted in part from lower sales and marketing expenses compared to the previous year's period. In addition, EBIT includes a one-time gain from the sale of a property in the amount of around EUR 2.4 million in the current period.

Earnings per share (EPS)[3] amounted to EUR 0.52 (previous year: EUR 0.43).

Full results for the first quarter 2020/21 will be published on February 8, 2021.

During the further course of fiscal year 2020/21, the company expects the recovery in revenue and EBIT to continue compared to the previous year, which had seen a marked impact from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Im Marktvergleich weist dieses ETP ein deutlich überdurchschnittliches Rating/Risikoprofil auf. Es liegt im Rahmen unserer Analyse weit oberhalb der Regressionsgeraden (+34,6 %) und ist damit nach unserer Einschätzung stark überdurchschnittlich attraktiv.
