Prime Standard-listed GESCO AG, an industrial group of medium-sized market- and technology-leading companies, informs in its 9-Month Report 2022 published today on a consistently pleasing business performance.
All key financial indicators again improved significantly compared to the same period last year. Sales increased by 24% compared to the same period last year (Q3/2022: € 435.4 million; Q3/2021: € 351 million). EBIT improved by 47% and the EBIT margin increased by 147 basis points from 7.9% to 9.4%. Group earnings increased very significantly to € 26.3 million and thus already reached the level of the entire 2021 financial year by the end of the third quarter.
The gratifying business development was achieved through further gains in market share and the high adjustment speed of the subsidiaries in the form of timely passing on of price increases while at the same time successfully stabilising the supply chains. The positive effects of the Excellence Programmes also played an important role.
GESCO confirms the increased forecast published in October 2022 for sales in the range of € 575 million - 585 million and Group earnings in the range of € 30.7 - 32.2 million.
