Arbon, 6 May 2022 EDAG, leading independent engineering services provider to the global mobility industry, starts the first quarter of the current fiscal year with dynamic growth. At EUR 193.5 million, Group revenues were 23.5 percent above the previous year´s level of EUR 156.7 million. All three segments contributed to the increase with double-digit growth.
The adjusted Group EBIT increased to EUR 14.7 million (previous year: EUR 1.4 million). Order intake surged by 30.2 percent to EUR 266.1 million (previous year: EUR 204.3 million). As of March 31, 2022, the company had 7,963 employees worldwide (previous year: 7,871employees).

„With the significant rise in revenue and profit in the first quarter, we have finally left the pandemic-related decline behind us. Thanks to good capacity utilization and continued strict cost discipline, earnings are now well above the pre-crisis level“, explains Cosimo De Carlo, CEO of the EDAG Group. „The very strong order intake in the first quarter leads to an optimistic outlook for the quarters ahead, despite continuing uncertainties.

For fiscal year 2022, EDAG expects accelerated growth momentum and a positive development in key performance indicators. This estimation depends largely on the war in Ukraine and possible further geopolitical disputes, as well as ongoing disruptions in global supply chains and further pandemic developments.

Revenue is expected to grow by around 6 percent to 9 percent.
The adjusted EBIT margin is expected in a range of around 6 percent to 8 percent.
The investment rate is expected in a range of around 4 percent to 5 percent.
