Bertrandt annual figures: Total over 1 billion – "We are currently experiencing a significant upturn in demand" – Digitalization as a megatrend
Board interview | Börsenradio, 15.12.2022 (only available in German)
"We are currently experiencing a significant upturn in demand," says CFO Markus Ruf. This is also due to higher capacity utilization following project postponements and increased sick leave in the early pandemic years. Corona had an "impact of around 15 million" euros. The megatrends are digitalization, e-mobility and autonomous driving. These impacts, including growing personnel costs (over 1,100 new employees since 2020, for a total of 13,179 worldwide), are hitting the service company harder than rising energy costs and material shortages. The good results also lead to a dividend proposal of 85 cents per share (Annual General Meeting in February 2023). Bertrandt also expects revenue growth of between 60 and 100 million euros in 2022/23.
