CENIT AG Annual Financial Results 2018: Sales up by around 12 percent, EBIT down by around 30 percent compared to the previous year
DGAP-News: CENIT AG / Key word(s): Annual Results
Stuttgart, April 01, 2019 - CENIT AG was not able to repeat the success of the previous years in the 2018 financial year. Even if sales in the group rose by approx. 12 percent, EBIT fell by almost 30 percent, which is due in particular to the decline in the sale of the company's own software. Sales of third-party software again increased by around 27 percent compared to the previous year. On the basis of the annual financial statements of CENIT Aktiengesellschaft, Stuttgart, the Management Board and Supervisory Board will propose to the Annual General Meeting on May 24, 2019 to distribute a dividend of EUR 0.60 per share.
During the 2018 business year, CENIT Group achieved total sales revenues of EUR 169,990 k (2017: EUR 151,701 k/12.1%). Sales of CENIT's proprietary software declined by 12% at EUR 15,449 k, compared to EUR 17,559 k. Sales revenues from CENIT Consulting and Services totaled EUR 49,776 k and thus declined by 6.6% on-year (2017: EUR 51,618 k). Especially due to the acquisition of the KEONYS Group, sales of third-party software increased by around 27% to EUR 104,299 k (2017: EUR 82,362 k).
CENIT achieved EBITDA in the amount of EUR 11,948 k (2017: EUR 15,269 k/-21.8%) and EBIT of EUR 9,028 k (2017: EUR 12,836 k/-29.7%). Earnings per share were EUR 0.73 EUR (2017: EUR 1.07 EUR/-31.8%).
Asset and Financial Situation
The forecast for the 2019 business year is based on sales at the previous year's level of around EUR 170,000 k and EBIT of EUR 10,000 k.
