Continental announces preliminary key data for the first quarter of 2021

The financial results of Continental AG in the first quarter of fiscal 2021 are above current average analyst expectations. Based on preliminary data, key financial results of the first quarter of fiscal 2021 are as follows:?

Consolidated sales of the Continental Group were ?10.259?billion?(Q1 2020: ?9.913 billion) and the adjusted EBIT margin was?8.1%. Due to the intended spin-off of Powertrain Technologies, IFRS 5 Non-current Assets Held for Sale and Discontinued Operations has been applied. Due to this application, depreciation ceased for discontinued operations starting March 16, 2021. Without this application, the adjusted EBIT margin would have been 7.9% (Q1 2020: 4.4%). Year-on-year sales growth before changes in the scope of consolidation and exchange-rate effects was 8.6%.? Sales in Automotive Technologies were ?4.087?billion?(Q1 2020: ?4.180 billion) and the adjusted EBIT margin was?4.5% (Q1 2020: 1.9%). Year-on-year sales growth before changes in the scope of consolidation and exchange-rate effects was 3.4%.? Sales in Rubber Technologies were ?4.235?billion?(Q1 2020: ?3.972 billion) and the adjusted EBIT margin was?14.5% (Q1 2020: 9.6%). Year-on-year sales growth before changes in the scope of consolidation and exchange-rate effects was 11.7%.? Sales in Powertrain Technologies were ?1.998?billion?(Q1 2020: ?1.829 billion) and the adjusted EBIT margin was?3.8%. Due to the intended spin-off of Powertrain Technologies, IFRS 5 Non-current Assets Held for Sale and Discontinued Operations has been applied to this group sector. Due to this application, depreciation ceased for this group sector starting March 16, 2021. Without this application, the adjusted EBIT margin would have been 2.9% (Q1 2020: 0.7%). Year-on-year sales growth before changes in the scope of consolidation and exchange-rate effects was 12.8%.? Free cash flow before acquisitions and carve-out effects for the?Continental Group amounted to ?670?million (Q1 2020: ?87 million). This figure benefitted from a lower value for capital expenditures before financial investments of 2.8% of sales in the first quarter.?For fiscal 2021, Continental continues to expect that capital expenditures before financial investments will be around 7% of sales.

Continental continues to experience numerous challenges in its business activities, including the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the continued shortage of semiconductors, increasing costs for raw materials, constraints related to logistics as well as uncertainty and volatility in customer demand. In addition, the planned increase in research and development expenses in the Autonomous Mobility and Safety business area will have a greater effect in subsequent quarters. Due to the aforementioned factors, the outlook for fiscal 2021 remains unchanged to those described in the 2020 Annual Report.

The quarterly statement for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 will be released on May 6, 2021.

"Adjusted EBIT" is defined in the Glossary of Financial Terms on page 42 of the 2020 Annual Report, which is available at www.continental-ir.com.
