EDAG Engineering Group AG:
Strong order intake in the first quarter demonstrates sustained growth potential
  • Order intake up by 17.2% against previous year´s Q1
  • Revenue up by 9.2% to EUR 211.4 million
  • Adjusted EBIT margin of 6.1% in line with expectations

Arbon, 05. May 2023 EDAG, leading independent engineering services provider to the global mobility industry, confirms its growth course with a significant increase in order intake. Compared to the previous year, order intake in the first quarter 2023 was up by 17.2 percent to EUR 312.0 million (previous year: EUR 266.1 million). Group revenues levelled at EUR 211.4 million and thus 9.2 percent above the previous year´s EUR 193.5 million. All three segments contributed to the growth, with Electrics/Electronics recording by far the highest increase of 25.6 percent.

The Group EBIT of EUR 14.4 million was slightly above the previous year´s figure of EUR 14.3 million. The adjusted Group EBIT stood at EUR 13.0 million (previous year: EUR 14.7 million). The EBIT margin reached 6.8 percent (previous year: 7.4 percent); the adjusted EBIT margin was 6.1 percent (previous year: 7.6 percent). The margin development in the first quarter is thus in line with expectations for the full year 2023.

As of March 31, 2023, the company had 8,529 employees worldwide (previous year: 7,963 employees).

For the 2023 financial year, EDAG expects further growth and a stable earnings development. These estimates are, however, subject to considerable uncertainties, which arise in particular from the war in Ukraine and possible further geopolitical conflicts, energy price and wage cost developments, as well as the availability of sufficient qualified personnel.

Revenue is expected to grow by around 4 percent to 7 percent.

The adjusted EBIT margin is expected in a range of around 4 percent to 7 percent.
