Nevertheless, we managed to increase group sales by 30% to a good 1.25 billion euros to increase adjusted EBIT by 58% and the unadjusted profit for the period by 160% to 37 million euros. Regarding business development in Q1 2022, key Board issues and prospects for Fiscal 2022, Alexander Geis said: “In terms of sales, we started the year very well. With sales of EUR 370 million, the first quarter of 2022 was the best in the company’s history. In terms of margins, the EMEA region particularly suffered from high steel prices, energy costs and logistics. The adjusted EBIT margin for the group was a satisfactory 6.4%. Based on the data for the first quarter of 2022, we raised our forecasts for consolidated sales and improved our forecasts for the adjusted EBIT margin. We currently assume sales between EUR 1.2 billion and EUR 1.35 billion and an adjusted EBIT margin between 6.5% and 7.0%. The investment ratio will be between 2% and 2.5%. Our management focus this year on the topics of portfolio optimization and growth, the further development of the ESG strategy, capital allocation and operational excellence. ” With the registration rate of around 58%, the General Meeting of SAF-HOLLAND SE once again met with great interest. for the financial year 2022.
