PRESS RELEASE: Rational AG: Encouraging business -2-

05/05/2021 | 01:02am EDT
industry side, the factors are the in some instances massive financial aid packages, as in the U.S., for example, and 
the dealers' depleted inventories. Risks that remain are new virus mutations and further waves of the pandemic that 
could lead to renewed lockdowns. 
The company's management currently still expects growth in sales revenues in the medium single-digit range. "Based on 
the assumption that other markets will benefit sooner or more strongly from catch-up effects among restaurant and 
communal catering guests and our end customers, sales revenue growth for the fiscal year could turn out to be somewhat 
better than previously expected", said Peter Stadelmann. 
The risk of supply shortages for electronic components and production stoppages as a result still remains. There is 
also the risk of rising costs in material procurement. "There are already signs of price increases for some raw 
materials and especially electronic components, as well as rising transport and logistics costs. In addition, operating 
costs for trade fairs, customer visits and travel will rise again as things continue to get back to normal", notes Jörg 
Walter. 
If the positive trend in sales revenues and the favourable cost situation of the first quarter continue and the risks 
described do not materialise in full, then the EBIT margin will be higher than the previous year.
