Preliminary sales and earnings figures of Bastei Lübbe AG in fiscal year 2020/2021 above expectations - higher EBIT margin expected

  • Group sales increase to 92.5 million euros (previously 88 million euros expected)
  • EBIT corridor increases to 10 to 11 million euros
  • EBIT margin of between 10 and 12 percent expected for fiscal 2021/2022
  • Dividend payment confirmed

Cologne, 27 April 2021 - Yesterday, Bastei Lübbe, one of Germany's largest trade publishers, published an ad hoc announcement due to its preliminary revenue and EBIT figures in the 4th quarter of fiscal year 2020/2021 (January to March 2021) exceeding expectations.

Accordingly, the Cologne-based publishing house increased sales by 4.5 million euros to 92.5 million euros. Due to the restrictive measures against the spread of the COVID 19 virus, the Management Board had forecast consolidated sales of 88 million euros in January. The company was also able to increase consolidated earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) in fiscal 2020/2021 despite a challenging market environment. Based on preliminary figures, this is now expected to be in a corridor between 10 and 11 million euros, compared with the 7 to 8 million euros previously forecast. The EBIT margin for the completed fiscal year is therefore around 11 to 12 percent. The reasons for the margin improvement were higher-than-expected sales, Corona-related cost reductions combined with a balanced product mix, and significantly reduced costs in connection with a legal dispute compared with the assumptions made in January.

"In a difficult environment, Bastei Lübbe can look back on a successful financial year with a very attractive range of programs. In the process, all employees have contributed their share to our economically pleasing result under challenging conditions, for which we would like to express our sincere thanks," Joachim Herbst, Spokesman of the Executive Board of Bastei Lübbe AG, explains the figures. "For the current fiscal year, we are also confident that we will be able to develop and offer exciting and emotionally moving content for our readers and that our shareholders will share in this success."

Bastei Lübbe also expects a positive development for 2021/2022 and sees an EBIT margin of between 10 percent and 12 percent as realistic with a planned slight increase in group sales. The company will publish a detailed forecast with the annual financial statements at the annual press conference on July 13, 2021.

Announcement dividend payment

The preliminary figures for the past fiscal year and the forecast of the figures for the current year confirm the ability of Bastei Lübbe AG to pay a dividend. Due to the improvement in earnings, the Executive Board and Supervisory Board confirm the intention to propose the payment of a dividend for the 2020/2021 fiscal year to the shareholders at the Annual General Meeting on September 15, 2021.
