FUCHS PETROLUB SE announces new earnings outlook for the current financial year

As expected, in the first half of 2020, FUCHS recorded sales revenues of 14% and earnings (EBIT) of 29% below the previous year.

In April 2020, FUCHS PETROLUB SE suspended the outlook for the current year as a result of the considerable impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Based on today's assessment of the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, FUCHS has determined a new forecast for the financial year 2020 and expects a drop in earnings in the range of 25%.

The effects of the crisis on supply chains, production and customer demand cannot be reliably estimated currently. A second pandemic wave and an associated further decline in demand due to a recession could have a negative impact on the economic development of FUCHS and is not taken into account in the current forecast for the full year.

FUCHS is well positioned to face the crisis and has a solid financial basis. The stability and structure of the balance sheet form a sound foundation for further development. Both the low proportion of fixed costs and the high proportion of raw materials have a positive effect. This allows us to breathe flexibly with sales. In addition, FUCHS once again benefits from its worldwide presence and broad product portfolio.

The complete half-year financial report 2020 will be published as scheduled on July 30, 2020.

International School Augsburg (ISA): Investment in den Rohstoff Bildung

Die in Gersthofen bei Augsburg ansässige International School Augsburg (ISA) plant als erste internationale Schule in Deutschland den Gang an die Börse und macht damit erstmals das Thema „Bildung“ unter ESG-Kriterien investierbar. Die ISA, an der derzeit rund 330 Schüler eingeschrieben sind, ist als internationale Schule Teil eines globalen Schulnetzwerkes, welches das in Deutschland anerkannte IB-Diploma als Hochschulzugangsberechtigung anbietet. Im Rahmen des geplanten Campus-Neubaus sollen die Kapazitäten erweitert und damit die hohe Nachfrage nach privaten Bildungsleistungen in Deutschland und in der Region erfüllt werden. GBC-Analyst Cosmin Filker hat mit dem ISA-Vorstand Marcus Wagner gesprochen.
