GEA Achieves 10 Percent Operating EBITDA Margin in Q1

26.05.2016

GEA s order intake rose to EUR 1,144.3 million in the first quarter of 2016. Whereas revenue fell, mainly as a result of a low order intake of small, fast-processed orders in the first two months of the year, the order backlog increased by 8.5 percent compared with December 31, 2015.

With the gross margin remaining stable, further cost reductions facilitated by the "Fit for 2020" initiative in particular enabled GEA to improve its operating EBITDA margin by around 20 basis points to 10.0 percent, this despite the contraction in volume.

"Thanks to the measures to enhance efficiency already implemented and our strong position in the market, we succeeded in raising our operating EBITDA margin to 10.0 percent for the first time in a first quarter of a year despite relatively low revenue figures," said Jürg Oleas, Chairman of the Executive Board of GEA, appraising the present situation. "On the basis of solid order intake and a healthy order backlog, we can now corroborate the forecast we made back in February for fiscal year 2016."

Net liquidity continued to improve compared with the prior-year period, increasing from EUR 822.7 million to EUR 867.9. Adjusted for non-recurring items, the cash flow driver margin for the last 12 months amounted to 10.9 percent, compared with 10.2 percent for the prior-year period.

In a difficult economic environment in which the COVID-19 pandemic continued to weigh on GEA’s order intake and revenue, the positive effects of the measures introduced last year to improve efficiency are becoming increasingly noticeable.
