Berentzen-Gruppe Aktiengesellschaft: Preliminary business figures for the 2020 financial year / Forecast for the 2021 financial year
Berentzen-Gruppe Aktiengesellschaft, which is listed on the Regulated Market (General Standard) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (ISIN: DE0005201602), expects, based on preliminary business figures for the 2020 financial year available today, a normalised consolidated operating profit (consolidated EBIT) of EUR 5.2 (2019: 9.8) million and a normalised consolidated operating profit before depreciation and amortisation (consolidated EBITDA) of EUR 14.1 (2019: 18.4) million, each adjusted for exceptional effects. Consolidated revenues are expected to amount to EUR 154.6 (2019: EUR 167.4) million.
The aforementioned earnings-related financial figures are thus within the ranges forecast for the 2020 financial year as published on July 22, 2020 (normalised consolidated EBIT: EUR 4.0 to 6.0 million; normalised consolidated EBITDA: EUR 13.0 to 15.0 million; consolidated revenues: EUR 153.0 to 160.0 million).
In this context, the Executive Board today updated its previously unpublished forecast for the 2021 financial year as part of a validation of the previous corporate planning, which in terms of earnings-related financial figures partially lag behind the consensus estimate currently available based on corresponding analyst estimates from October to December 2020, reflecting current market expectations.
