EQS-News: DATAGROUP SE: DATAGROUP Publishes Annual Financial Statements and Confirms the Record Result for the 2021/2022 Fiscal Year

?

INCREASE IN BALANCE SHEET TOTAL AND IMPROVED EQUITY RATIO

The company?s financing is built on sound foundations as can be seen in the balance sheet development of the fiscal year. The balance sheet total rose to EUR 483.6m after EUR 463.0m on 30 September 2021.

Based on the final purchase price allocation of a company acquired in the previous financial year some balance sheet items of the previous year were adjusted.

The equity ratio also grew significantly to 26.4 % (PY: 20.3%). This growth is due to the strong operating result and the remeasurement of pension provisions, which are recognized without effect on profit or loss. Net debt decreased to EUR 109.3m (PY: EUR 116.6m). Liquid funds amounted to EUR 47.0m (PY: EUR 44.1m). Liabilities to banks remained unchanged at EUR 78.2m.

?

CASH FLOW FROM OPERATING ACTIVITIES ROSE BY 40.5 %

Cash flow from operating activities rose to EUR 70.3m (PY: EUR 50.0m), an increase of 40.5 %, which stems from the outstanding operating income. At the same time, CAPEX declined in comparison to the prior year: Investments in property, plant and equipment and in intangible assets stood at EUR 8.8m (PY: EUR 11.0m), the investment ratio was down to 1.8 % (PY: 2.5 %).

?DATAGROUP has significantly increased all major key figures?, says Oliver Thome, CFO of DATAGROUP. ?At the same time, our corporate financing remains well positioned for the long term. This provides sufficient scope for future acquisitions and further corporate growth.?

The Boards of DATAGROUP intend to propose to the Annual General Meeting on 9 March 2023 to distribute a dividend of EUR 1.10 for FY 2021/2022.
