Manz AG with positive earnings development in the first three months of 2021 
- EBITDA doubled year-on-year to 14.3 million euros 
- EBIT more than tripled to 11.5 million euros (3M 2020: 3.5 million euros) 
- Revenues of 50.9 million euros below previous year's level 
- Strong performance of the Energy Storage segment 
Reutlingen, May 04, 2021 - Manz AG, a globally active high-tech equipment manufacturer with a comprehensive technology 
portfolio, is able to report positive consolidated earnings in the first quarter of 2021 as a result of the positive 
earnings contributions from the Energy Storage and Contract Manufacturing segments, despite ongoing challenges in the 
wake of the COVID-19-pandemic, further revenue shifts in the Solar segment and a difficult market environment for 
display equipment. Revenues in the first three months of 2021 totaled 50.9 million euros, down 17.4% year-on-year. 
Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA), including the effects from the sale of shares 
in Talus Manufacturing Ltd., amounted to 14.3 million euros (previous year: 6.9 million euros), with an EBITDA margin 
of 26.5%. Earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) also improved significantly to 11.5 million euros (previous year: 
3.5 million euros), corresponding to an improved EBIT margin of 21.3%. 
Martin Drasch, CEO of Manz AG, comments: "Our focus on battery production and electromobility is paying off, as 
evidenced not least by a sustained good order situation and very pleasing revenue and earnings growth in the Energy 
Storage segment. The enormous future potential of this segment is also evidenced by the EU funding in the three-digit 
million-euro range that the Manz Group will receive for the 'Lithium Battery Factory of the Future' project. The aim is 
to develop and manufacture highly efficient machines and processes for the fully automated production of 
next-generation lithium-ion batteries. " 
Looking at the individual segments, the Solar segment was characterized by further revenue shifts in the first quarter 
of 2021. As a result, the full completion of the two CIGS orders is expected to be postponed to the end of 2021. In the 
Electronics segment, the development of the previous year continued in the first months of 2021. Demand for machinery 
for electronic components continued to be depressed, partly due to the COVID-19-pandemic. In contrast, the assembly 
automation business, particularly in the cell contacting systems segment, developed positively. For example, in the 
first quarter of 2021, Manz received a follow-up order in the field of electromobility from the automotive supplier TE 
Connectivity. While the Service segment developed largely in line with expectations, the Contract Manufacturing segment 
was also able to contribute to the profitable result in the first quarter of 2021 due to the earnings effect of around 
14 million euros from the sale of the shares in Talus Manufacturing Ltd. The sale of the shares was completed in 
January 2021. 
The Energy Storage segment showed very dynamic development. Revenues and earnings increased significantly, and incoming 
orders also developed very positively. In addition to new orders, for example from a US manufacturer of electric 
vehicles for an assembly line for highly efficient battery modules, Manz also concluded a cooperation agreement with 
GROB-WERKE GmbH & Co.KG. The cooperation will enable them to address the market for production solutions for 
lithium-ion battery cells and modules in the field of electromobility even more effectively. The joint goal of the two 
companies is to establish themselves as leading European supplier in the field of fully comprehensive production 
solutions for lithium-ion battery systems. The funding notification received from the European Commission at the end of 
April for an amount in the triple-digit million euro range for the further development of lithium-ion battery 
technology for the Reutlingen location and the location in Italy as part of the Important Projects of Common European 
Interest ("IPCEI") for the promotion of research and innovation in the battery value chain also underscores the 
importance of Manz AG's consistent focus. The company thus has an important role to play in the further development of 
this key industry in Europe. 
Thanks to the good order situation, the Managing Board of Manz AG is optimistic about further business development in 
the current fiscal year and beyond. Across all segments, incoming orders totaled 42.2 million euros (previous year: 
45.2 million euros). At 170.1 million euros, orders on hand were at an improved level compared to the same period of 
the previous year (previous year: 152.8 million euros).
