HELLA GmbH & Co. KGaA: Preliminary key figures for the second financial quarter significantly below the previous year's level; adjustment of the company outlook for the current financial year

- Based on preliminary figures, group revenue declines by around 13 percent to 1.5 billion euros in the second quarter of the financial year

- Preliminary adjusted EBIT margin falls to around 4.0 percent in the second quarter

- Revenue and earnings forecast for the current financial year 2021/2022 is lowered further

Lippstadt, Germany, 29 November 2021. According to preliminary figures, currency and portfolio-adjusted sales of HELLA GmbH & Co. KGaA ("HELLA") in the second financial quarter (1 September to 30 November 2021) declined by around 13 percent to approximately 1.5 billion euros (previous year: 1.8 billion euros) due to ongoing supply bottlenecks for semiconductors and other components. The preliminary adjusted EBIT margin fell to around 4.0 percent in the second quarter (previous year: 12.1 percent) as a result of rising materials and logistics costs and increased production inefficiencies due to the bottleneck situation. Based on the first half of the financial year (1 June to 30 November 2021), Group sales adjusted for currency and portfolio effects will thus decrease by approximately 3 percent to around EUR 3.0 billion (previous year: EUR 3.1 billion) on a preliminary basis; the adjusted EBIT margin will be approximately 5.0 percent (previous year: 8.7 percent). The challenging market environment is impacting HELLA's Automotive segment in particular.

In view of the business performance to date, the expected lack of market recovery in the second half of the year and increasing cost burdens, the sales and earnings forecast for the current financial year is further lowered. For the 2021/2022 financial year (1 June 2021 to 31 May 2022), HELLA now expects currency and portfolio-adjusted sales in the range of approximately EUR 5.9 billion to EUR 6.2 billion (previously adjusted: approximately EUR 6.0 billion to EUR 6.5 billion) and an EBIT margin adjusted for structural and portfolio effects of approximately 3.5 percent to 5.0 percent (previously adjusted: approximately 5.0 percent to 7.0 percent). Particularly with a view to the third financial quarter, the company sees major challenges with lower production volumes as well as further increasing cost burdens in view of the ongoing materials and component crisis.
