- Consolidated revenue increase to 75.2 million euros (+10.2%)

- EBIT improves to -1.1 million euros (H1 2020: -4.7 million euros)

Heidelberg, 10. August 2021: SNP Schneider-Neureither & Partner SE, (ISIN: DE0007203705), a world-leading provider of 
solutions for digital transformation processes and software-based data migrations, today published its report for the 
first half of 2021. According to this report, consolidated revenues increased by 10.2% year-on-year to ?75.2 million 
(H1 2020: ?68.7 million). With a 24.3% increase in revenue to ?23.6 million, the Software segment proved to be the 
strongest growth driver (previous year's revenue: ?19.0 million) and currently already accounts for around one third of 
consolidated revenue. In the Service segment, rising consultant utilization contributed to a 4.8% increase in revenue 
to 52.1 million euros (H1 2020: 49.7 million euros). In addition, the acquisition of EXA AG in February of the current 
year had a positive impact. The operating result (EBIT) for the Group improved to -1.1 million euros in the same period 
(H1 2020: -4.7 million euros). This was due to both increased revenue and a more efficient cost structure. In addition, 
the acquisition of EXA AG in February 2021 had a positive impact on the development of revenue and earnings. 
Accordingly, the result for the period improved to -2.1 million euros in the first half of the year, compared to -4.2 
million euros in the same period of the previous year. 
"After an initially subdued start to the year, we gained noticeable momentum in the second quarter and are pleased with 
an overall satisfactory first half-year. In particular, the development of our Software segment shows that we are on 
the right track with our strategy," says Michael Eberhardt, CEO of SNP SE. "The recent acquisition of Datavard AG will 
further strengthen us. We have therefore raised our Group revenue and earnings expectations for the current year." 
In terms of order entry, the software segment also grew disproportionately with an increase of 12.0% to ?32.7 million 
in the first half of 2021 (H1 2020: ?29.2 million) and thus already contributes 35.6% to Group-wide incoming orders (H1 
2020: 31.4%). By contrast, order entry in the Service segment declined by -6.7% to ?59.2 million (H1 2020: ?63.7 
million) due to restrained order placement with regard to major projects. The USA and UK regions in particular fell 
short of expectations, while significant growth was achieved in JAPAC and Eastern Europe. Overall, order intake in the 
Group fell slightly by -1.0% to 91.9 million euros (H1 2020: 92.8 million euros). 
The order backlog reached a value of 132.8 million euros at the end of the first half of 2021 and was thus around 30% 
higher than in the same period of 2020 (June 30, 2020: 102.7 million euros). 
The number of employees increased to 1,576 as of June 30, 2021 (December 31, 2020: 1,463), mainly due to the 
acquisition of EXA AG in February 2021. 
Forecast updated 
With the 2020 Annual Report, SNP published its Group forecast for fiscal year 2021, but explicitly without any effects 
from planned M&A activities, which were difficult to calculate at the time. Now that the sales and earnings effects 
from the various M&A activities (acquisition of EXA AG and Datavard AG, sale of the Polish subsidiary) have become more 
visible, SNP has updated its sales and earnings forecast for the current fiscal year: according to this, management 
expects updated consolidated sales of between 170 million euros and 190 million euros (previously without M&A 
activities: 160 million euros to 180 million euros). 
The expectation for the EBIT margin remains unchanged at 5% to 8%. This applies before effects from the purchase price 
allocation of Datavard AG, as these cannot be reliably determined at the present time. Immediately after the effects 
from the purchase price allocation have been calculated, the company will adjust and publish the EBIT margin forecast. 
In order to better assess and evaluate the current development of earnings, management is establishing EBITDA as an 
additional Group-wide control and forecast parameter during the year. Taking into account the two completed 
acquisitions (EXA AG and Datavard AG) and the planned sale of the Polish subsidiary, management expects EBITDA for the 
current financial year to be between EUR 18 million and EUR 24 million; excluding the M&A activities, the EBITDA 
forecast would be between EUR 16 million and EUR 22 million.
