Fiscal 2020/2021 at a glance
Bertrandt has held its own in a challenging environment affected by the pandemic and improved its EBIT year on year by around one third. Particularly in the final quarter, capacity utilisation in Germany and many foreign markets expanded notably. In this environment, the Bertrandt Group closed fiscal 2020/2021 with total revenues of EUR 848.592 million (previous year EUR 916.582 million). Earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) rose to EUR 20.040 million (previous year EUR 15.161 million). Consistently implemented countermeasures enabled EBIT to be increased year on year, despite the impact of the pandemic and the resulting temporary underutilisation of capacity.
We anticipate further normalisation of capacity utilisation in fiscal 2021/2022, despite ongoing challenging conditions, and corresponding strong growth in total revenues of EUR 80 to 120 million. The EBIT margin is expected to go up to a level of between 4 and 7 per cent.
