EDAG Engineering Group AG: Solid revenue growth and margin improvement after nine months


  • Revenue growth of 6.5% to EUR 628.2 million
  • EBIT grows by 12.3% to EUR 42.5 million
  • Earnings after taxes also up on the previous year at EUR 23.6 million


Arbon, 9. November 2023 EDAG, leading independent development partner for the mobility industry and technology developer for industrial solutions, published its report on the first three quarters of the 2023 financial year today. In a challenging macroeconomic environment, both solid revenue growth and an improvement in the margin were recorded after nine months.


At Group level, revenue of 628.2 million euros was 6.5 per cent above the previous year's level of 589.7 million euros. This growth was primarily driven by developments in the Electrics/Electronics segment, which increased revenue by 16.7 per cent. Vehicle Engineering was able to increase revenue by 3.2 per cent, while Production Solutions remained at the previous year's level.


Group EBIT increased to 42.5 million euros compared to the previous year's figure of 37.9 million euros. Adjusted Group EBIT totalled 41.1 million euros (previous year: 37.5 million euros). The EBIT margin was 6.8 per cent (previous year: 6.4 per cent); the adjusted EBIT margin was 6.5 per cent (previous year: 6.4 per cent).

The increase in the margin is due in particular to the strong third quarter, in which the EBIT margin rose to 8.5 per cent (previous year: 6.2 per cent).


The growth in the reporting period led to an increase in working capital in line with expectations. This resulted in a negative free cash flow of 27.7 million euros (previous year: -11.5 million euros). As at 30 September, EDAG employed 8,712 people worldwide (previous year: 8,246 employees).


"The pressure to transform and innovate in the mobility sector remains high. Shortening development cycles is therefore becoming increasingly important for our customers. This quarter's solid performance once again confirms our company's ability to offer innovative and comprehensive solutions to shorten time-to-market," explains Cosimo De Carlo, CEO of the EDAG Group. "Efficiency and agility remain essential to keep pace with the rapid changes in the market".


"Against the background of the developments in the first nine months, we can concretise our guidance for the full year and confirm it overall," explains Holger Merz, CFO of the EDAG Group.

"For the 2023 financial year, we expect further growth and stable earnings development. However, this estimate is subject to considerable uncertainties, which arise in particular from the effects of the ongoing geopolitical disputes and inflationary developments, energy price and labour cost developments and the availability of sufficiently qualified personnel. We now expect revenue to grow by around 5 to 6 per cent instead of the previous figure of around 4 to 7 per cent. We are expecting an adjusted EBIT margin of around 6 per cent instead of the previous figure of around 4 to 7 per cent."
