PRESS RELEASE: First Quarter: Continental -2-

3 Before amortization of intangible assets from purchase price allocation (PPA), changes in the scope of consolidation, and special effects.

4 Excluding trainees.

Development of the group sectors

Sales in the Automotive Technologies group sector were down in the first quarter by 2.2 percent to EUR4.1 billion (Q1 2020: EUR4.2 billion). The adjusted EBIT margin rose to 4.5 percent (Q1 2020: 1.9 percent). Organic growth came to 3.4 percent. Strong business in China made a major contribution to this positive development. Furthermore, the volume of orders for fully connected central high-performance computers rose to a total of around EUR5 billion. These computers form a crucial link between the vehicle and the digital world. They are already being installed by Volkswagen in the ID.3 and ID.4 as well as in the ID.6 in China, and also in other models that are based on the modular e-drive system. Other car manufacturers such as Hyundai are also using Continental's high-performance computers in volume production, and the mobility supplier has already received a first volume order in the truck sector. In order to further strengthen the field of assisted and automated driving, Continental signed a memorandum of understanding in April to found a joint venture with Horizon Robotics. With a focus on the Chinese market, this will involve, for example, integrating the artificial intelligence processors and algorithms from Horizon Robotics into the cameras and central computers from Continental.

In the Rubber Technologies group sector, the Tires business area performed well at the beginning of the year, particularly in China and North America. In the first quarter, the ContiTech business area benefited from the recovery in global vehicle production, especially in China, and from stable industrial business. In the first quarter of 2021 in total, the Rubber Technologies group sector achieved sales of EUR4.2 billion (Q1 2020: EUR4.0 billion, +6.6 percent) and an adjusted EBIT margin of 14.5 percent (Q1 2020: 9.6 percent). Organic sales growth came to 11.7 percent.

In the first quarter, the Powertrain Technologies group sector achieved sales of EUR2.0 billion (Q1 2020: EUR1.8 billion, +9.3 percent) and an adjusted EBIT margin of 3.8 percent (Q1 2020: 0.7 percent). Organic growth came to 12.8 percent. The group sector continued to profit from steady growth in the electrification market. For example, it landed a large order with a sales volume worth hundreds of millions of euros for an innovative high-voltage component - an 800-volt inverter featuring silicon carbide technology.

Key figures for the group sectors (continuing operations and discontinued operations)
