SNP SE Increases Revenue Thanks to Strong Growth in Software Business

- Group revenue increases by 7% to € 106.3 million in the first nine months of 2020

- Growth in Software business segment particularly strong, up 15.2% to € 35.5 million

- International partner network significantly expanded

- Order backlog of € 100.3 million as of September 30, 2020 (+10% compared with the previous year)

- Revenue and earnings forecast for 2020 confirmed

Heidelberg, Germany, October 30, 2020 - SNP SE (SDAX, ISIN: DE0007203705), a global leader in software for digital transformation processes, today published its quarterly report for the first nine months of the year. Group revenue increased by 7% to € 106.3 million (9M 2019: € 99.3 million). This was essentially attributable to the growth of the high-margin Software business segment, which increased by a particularly strong 15.2% and amounted to approximately 33% of Group revenue (previous year: 31%). Revenue in the Service business segment increased by around 3% to € 70.8 million in the reporting period (9M 2019: € 68.5 million). Accordingly, the gross income margin came to 87.9%, a considerable improvement over the previous year (9M 2019: 86.7%).

Operating earnings (EBITDA) fell slightly year-over-year to € 6.1 million (9M 2019: € 7.0 million). This is mainly due to the increase in personnel expenses from € 61.1 million to € 71.0 million: Due to the growing demand for software solutions, SNP began investing last year - particularly in software development, but also in the expansion of sales. However, growth slowed with the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, which meant that the increased personnel costs could not be completely offset by higher revenue. Earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) thus reached a value of € 0.1 million after nine months (9M 2019: € 1.2 million). Earnings before taxes amounted to € -1.0 million after reaching € 0.4 million in the previous year.

"Our nine-month figures show that we are on track toward achieving our yearly targets. Demand for our software and services is continuously increasing and we were able to further expand our international partner network," says Dr. Andreas Schneider-Neureither, CEO of SNP SE. "Likewise, we expect to see good development in the fourth quarter with a growing project pipeline."

Order entry as of September 30, 2020 totaled € 141.8 million, approximately 4% lower than the comparable figure for the previous year (previous year: € 148.7 million). However, this value was positively influenced in the previous year by a multi-year order of € 26.5 million. The order backlog amounted to € 100.3 million as of September 30, 2020, compared to € 91.3 million as of September 30, 2019. This represents an increase of approximately 10%.

Thanks to successful working capital management, operating cash flow amounted to € 0.9 million after nine months despite a rising revenue level. This followed a cash outflow of € 9.2 million in the previous year.

SNP SE confirms the outlook for the 2020 fiscal year that was published on April 29, 2020. Management continues to expect Group revenue between € 145 million and € 170 million as well as an EBIT margin in the mid-single-digit percentage range for 2020 as a whole.
