Munich, March 13, 2019 - DATA MODUL was able to continue its growth course and closed the 2018 financial year with strong key figures above the previous year's level.

In line with the good final quarter figure, Group revenue for the total of 2018 rose by 10.6% to 241.4 million euros (previous year: 218.3 million euros). The international orientation of DATA MODUL was reflected in the consistently high export ratio of 49.1% (previous year: 49.9%). With a strong fourth quarter of 5.8 million euros (previous year: 3.5 million euros), the Group's EBIT reached a total value for the financial year of 20.8 million euros (previous year: 15.9 million euros) and thus an EBIT return of 8.6% (previous year: 7.3%). Orders received of EUR 253.8 million (previous year: 232.0 million euros) with a book-to-bill ratio of 1.05 and the high order backlog of 122.0 million euros (previous year: EUR 108.8 million) at the reporting date reached a new high of 9.4% and 12.1%, respectively.

Aves One AG: Kursziel 13,60 €

Die Aves One AG ist auch in der Corona-Krise als Bestandshalter von langlebigen Logistik-Assets mit langfristigen Mietverträgen gut aufgestellt. Das Unternehmen hat als Guidance einen Umsatz und ein EBITDA mindestens auf Vorjahresniveau verkündet. Unseres Erachtens sollte dies auch ohne Zukäufe gut machbar sein, da die im abgelaufenen Geschäftsjahr 2019 erworbenen Assets bereits zu einer höheren Umsatzbasis führen sollten. Auf Basis unseres DCF-Modells haben wir ein Kursziel in Höhe von 13,60 € ermittelt und vergeben ein KAUFEN-Rating.
