Vitesco Technologies Group AG: Impairment reversal in high-voltage applications within Electrification Technology business unit

Vitesco Technologies Group AG: Impairment reversal in high-voltage applications within Electrification Technology business unit

Regensburg, January 10, 2022. Based on the approval of the strategic financial planning in January 2022, Vitesco Technologies sees the need of an impairment reversal in its high-voltage applications within the Electrification Technology business unit. The reversal is the outcome of the annual impairment test according to IAS 36 Impairment of Assets.

The impairment reversal potential equals the difference between the value in use and the book value of the high-voltage applications, the reversal is made for the different individual assets and is limited to a maximum of amortized costs at the date of the impairment test result.

Following proper examination of the underlying assumptions regarding the future development of the high-voltage applications business, the impairment reversal on the previous years' impairments amounts to around 120 million euros based on the higher value in use.

The impairment reversal will have a positive effect of around 120 million euros on the reported earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) of the fourth quarter 2021 and the fiscal year 2021.
