PRESS RELEASE : Hapag-Lloyd significantly improves operating result in 2020

DGAP-News: Hapag-Lloyd AG / Key word(s): Preliminary Results 
Hapag-Lloyd significantly improves operating result in 2020

Hamburg, 27 January 2021 
Hapag-Lloyd significantly improves operating result in 2020 
- EBITDA and EBIT significantly higher despite the coronavirus pandemic 
- Freight rate improved, transport volumes slightly below prior-year level 
- Performance Safeguarding Program successfully implemented 
On the basis of preliminary figures, Hapag-Lloyd's earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation 
(EBITDA) for the 2020 financial year increased to more than USD 3 billion (approximately EUR 2.7 billion). Earnings 
before interest and taxes (EBIT) rose to around USD 1.5 billion (approximately EUR 1.3 billion). Both key figures are 
therefore in line with the most recently published earnings forecast for the 2020 financial year. The main drivers of 
these positive business developments have been improved freight rates and lower bunker prices as well as cost savings 
of roughly USD 500 million resulting from the successful implementation of the Performance Safeguarding Program. The 
EBIT also includes one-off expenses in Q4 2020 of around USD 140 million (approximately EUR 120 million), mainly 
related to fleet optimisation. 
Revenues increased in the 2020 financial year by roughly 3 percent, to USD 14.6 billion (approximately EUR 12.8 
billion). This is caused by an improved average freight rate of 1,115 USD/TEU (2019: 1,072 USD/TEU) whereas transport 
volumes were slightly below the level of the previous year at 11.8 million TEU (2019: 12.0 million TEU) or minus 1.6 
per cent. 
Hapag-Lloyd will publish its 2020 Annual Report with the audited financial figures and an outlook for the current 
financial year on 18 March 2021.
