Ad hoc announcement pursuant to Art. 53 LR

Key figures full-year 2021

  • Net sales grew by nearly 30% to c. CHF 513 million (FY20: CHF 395.8 million)
  • EBITDA margin rose to c. 20% (FY20: 14.8%)

Comet Group today announces the preliminary, unaudited key figures for the full-year 2021. 

Net sales increased sharply by nearly 30% to approximately CHF 513 million compared to full-year 2020 (CHF 395.8 million) and, thus, exceeded the guidance of CHF 480 million to 500 million. The company's growth continues to be driven by the robust semiconductor industry cycle and strong demand for x-ray systems, modules and tubes despite a resurgence of the pandemic in the final months of the year.

At EBITDA level, the Comet Group achieved an EBITDA margin of approximately 20% which is at the upper end of the guided range of 18% to 20%, and well above the 14.8% reported in the prior-year period.
Comet will release full financials for FY21 and provide an outlook for FY22 on March 4, 2022.
