ElringKlinger records revenue shortfalls and improved earnings in first quarter of 2020

Dettingen/Erms (Germany), April 17, 2020 +++ Based on the preliminary results, Group revenue generated by ElringKlinger AG (ISIN DE 0007856023 / WKN 785602) was lower in the first quarter of 2020. At EUR 396 million, revenues were noticeably down on the figure of EUR 441 million posted for the first quarter of 2019. The decline by EUR 45 million or 10 % is attributable primarily to the economic downturn in Europe and the impact of the coronavirus pandemic in Asia, where the Chinese plants, in particular, were affected by the extended New Year vacation and state-ordered closures.

Earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) for the ElringKlinger Group appear to have remained unaffected by the impact of the global coronavirus pandemic in the first quarter of 2020. At EUR 16 million, the figure is well above the prior-year total of EUR 6.4 million. Based on an initial analysis, the reason for this is that the measures implemented by the Management Board to raise efficiency levels at the North American and European plants are taking effect. This more than compensated for the negative earnings effects of the coronavirus pandemic in Asia. It should also be noted that the result for the first quarter of 2019 had been affected by charges attributable to US countervailing and anti-dumping duties.

Although the performance of the first quarter of 2020 illustrates that the Group as a whole is on the right track, it must be assumed that Group revenues and earnings will be significantly impacted in the second quarter of 2020 due to the current interruptions to production in Europe and North America. Substantial charges are expected.

The detailed results and the report on the first quarter will be published as planned on May 7, 2020.
