DGAP-Ad-hoc: SGL CARBON SE / Key word(s): Forecast 
SGL CARBON SE: SGL Carbon SE publishes preliminary sales and earnings figures for the first half of the year and raises 
forecast for 2021 
13-Jul-2021 / 13:04 CET/CEST 
Disclosure of an inside information acc. to Article 17 MAR of the Regulation (EU) No 596/2014, transmitted by DGAP - a 
service of EQS Group AG. 
The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement. 
SGL Carbon SE publishes preliminary sales and earnings figures for the first half of the year and raises forecast for 
Wiesbaden, July 13, 2021. Based on the encouraging business performance in the first half of 2021 and the 
transformation successes, SGL Carbon expects strong Group results for the first six months of 2021 and raises its 
guidance for fiscal year 2021. The company expects to exceed the upper end of the stated range of its Group EBITDA pre^ 
1 guidance (earnings before interest, taxes and depreciation adjusted by non-recurring items and one-time effects) for 
fiscal year 2021 of EUR 100 to 120 million and raises the EBITDA pre guidance for 2021 to EUR 130 -140 million. SGL 
Carbon's sales forecast is also increased slightly to approximately EUR 1.0 billion for the current fiscal year, up 
from EUR 920 - 970 million originally. The company expects free cash flow for the full year to be correspondingly above 
the forecast of EUR 20 million given at the beginning of the year. A slightly positive consolidated net result is also 
predicted for 2021. Previously, the company had assumed a consolidated net result of between EUR -20 million and EUR 0. 
According to preliminary figures, SGL Carbon expects Group sales for H1 2021 of around EUR 496 million (H1 2020: EUR 
456.5 million). This corresponds to an increase of around 9% compared to the same period of the previous year. Based on 
the sales increase and the cost effects achieved from the transformation, EBITDA pre (EBITDA before non-recurring items 
and one-time effects) increased to around EUR 72 million in the first six months of 2021 (H1 2020: EUR 42.0 million). 
The updated forecast for fiscal 2021 has been prepared on the basis of the prevailing market environment and assumes no 
deterioration in conditions due to the corona pandemic. In particular, it is based on the assumption that purchasing 
prices and logistics chains remain stable and production lines remain in operation. The communicated medium-term 
targets up to 2025 remain unaffected by the forecast adjustment. 
SGL Carbon will release its 2021 half-year figures as planned on August 12, 2021. 
^1The definition of key figures used in this release is aligned to the Annual Report 2020. There were no changes in the 
scope of consolidation or accounting methods compared with the previous guidance. 
Information and Explanation of the Issuer to this News: 
Important note: 
To the extent that our press release contains forward-looking statements, the latter are based on information that is 
available at present and on our current forecasts and assumptions. Forward-looking statements, by their very nature, 
entail known as well as unknown risks and uncertainties that may lead to actual developments and events differing 
substantially from the forward-looking assessments. Forward-looking statements must not be understood to be guarantees. 
Instead, future developments and events depend on a large number of factors; they comprise various risks and 
imponderables and are based on assumptions that may possibly turn out not to be appropriate. These include 
unforeseeable changes to fundamental political, economic, legal and societal conditions, particularly in the context of 
our main customers' industries, the competitive situation, interest and exchange rate trends, technological 
developments as well as other risks and uncertainties. We perceive additional risks e.g. in pricing developments, 
unforeseeable events in the environment of companies acquired and Group member companies as well as in current cost 
savings programs from time to time. The SGL Carbon assumes no obligation and does not intend to adjust or otherwise 
update these forward-looking statements either.
