SYNLAB announces upward revision of FY'21 guidance
Following the completion of our full-year forecast and with the July to September period showing higher-than-expected SARS-CoV-2 testing levels, driven by the development of the Delta variant, SYNLAB is raising its FY'21 guidance.
Revenue is now expected to be around EUR 3.5 billion (previously: EUR 3.2-3.3 billion) in FY'21. This represents total growth of 34% (previously: 22-25%) compared with FY'20.
Adjusted EBITDA margin of around 30% is expected in FY'21, leading to an adjusted EBITDA in excess of EUR 1 billion (previously: "exceed EUR 925 million"), compared with EUR 679 million in FY'20.
Unlevered free cash flow (pre-M&A) is expected to be around EUR 700 million in FY'21 (previously: "exceed EUR 500 million") compared with EUR 272 million in FY'20.
SYNLAB will comment on short-term dynamics, including its underlying business performance, and provide further details on its outlook with its non-audited Q3 results, on 10 November 2021.
