CORPORATE NEWS 
Stabilus S.A.: Recovery continues in the second quarter of FY2021 in all divisions 
- Preliminary figures confirmed with strong operating performance in the second quarter of FY2021: Revenues in Q2 
increase organically by 15.2 percent to EUR 244.0 million 
- Adjusted EBIT^[1] in Q2 at EUR 38.0 million compared to EUR 31.1 million in Q2 FY2020 
- Q2 result at EUR 25.9 million (Q2 FY2020: EUR 18.1 million) and free cash flow before acquisitions (Adj. FCF^[1]) at 
EUR 28.8 million (Q2 FY2020: EUR 13.0 million) 
- As previously announced, forecast for FY2021 has been raised to revenues of EUR 900 million to EUR 950 million with 
an adjusted EBIT^[1] margin of 13 percent to 15 percent 
Luxembourg/Koblenz, May 3, 2021 - Stabilus S.A. (ISIN: LU1066226637), one of the world's leading providers of motion 
control solutions for customers across a broad spectrum of industries, has today published its financial report for the 
second quarter of fiscal year 2021 (ended March 31, 2021) and has confirmed the preliminary figures published on April 
12, 2021. After a good start to the 2021 fiscal year in the first quarter, the recovery continued in the second 
quarter. All divisions contributed to the positive development, with the Automotive Powerise business unit recording 
the strongest growth. 
Group revenue in the second quarter of FY2021 increased by 10.4 percent compared to the same quarter of the previous 
year to EUR 244.0 million (Q2 FY2020: EUR 221.0 million). Adjusted for currency effects, Group revenue increased by 
15.2 percent. 
Dr. Michael Büchsner, CEO of Stabilus, said: "After a good start to the fiscal year, the continuation of this positive 
trend is even stronger in the second quarter. In addition to an outstanding development in the automotive sector, our 
industrial business also returned to growth. In view of the overall development in the first half of the year, we are 
therefore more optimistic about the fiscal year and have raised our forecast for revenues and the EBIT margin 
accordingly as previously announced. The issue of a promissory note (Schuldschein) for the first time in March and the 
positive development of free cash flow provide us with a comfortable level of liquidity and grant us flexibility in the 
implementation of our growth plans." 
Disproportionately strong automotive business in APAC drives growth 
In the EMEA segment, revenues in Q2 FY2021 rose by 7.5 percent to EUR 127.3 million (Q2 FY2020: EUR 118.4 million). 
This was mainly due to a strong development of Automotive Powerise, which was driven by an increased installation rate 
and higher production figures at German OEMs. In addition, Stabilus recorded a noticeable recovery in the Industrial 
business in the region. Adjusted for currency effects, revenues increased in the EMEA segment in Q2 FY2021 by 8.3 
percent. In the Americas segment, revenues increased by 2.1 percent year-on-year to EUR 84.4 million (Q2 FY2020: EUR 
82.7 million). Adjusted for currency effects, revenues increased in the Americas in Q2 FY2021 by 13.2 percent, which 
benefitted above all from the strong business in Automotive Powerise. In the Asia-Pacific segment, the company reported 
an increase in revenues of 61.5 percent to EUR 32.3 million compared to the same quarter of the previous year (Q2 
FY2020: EUR 20.0 million). Adjusted for currency effects, revenues in the region increased by 64.1 percent in Q2 
FY2021. The strong development in the automotive business unit also contributed to growth in APAC, where both 
Automotive Powerise and Automotive Gas Spring contributed significantly to the development with organic growth rates of 
120.5 percent and 60.8 percent, respectively, compared to the same quarter of the previous year. 
Strong recovery in the automotive business continues; Industrial back on a growth track 
Stabilus recorded double-digit organic growth rates in both the Automotive Gas Spring and Automotive Powerise business 
units in the second quarter of the 2021 fiscal year. In the Automotive Powerise division, which was once again able to 
significantly decouple from the situation in global automotive production, revenues rose by 19.2 percent to EUR 65.2 
million in Q2 FY2021 (Q2 FY2020: EUR 54.7 million). In the Automotive Gas Spring business unit, the company recorded an 
increase of 8.4 percent to EUR 77.6 million (Q2 FY2020: EUR 71.6 million). Adjusted for currency effects, the increase 
in revenues in these business units was 26.8 percent and 12.7 percent, respectively. 
The Industrial business unit recorded an increase in revenues of 6.9 percent to EUR 101.2 million in Q2 FY2021 compared 
to the same quarter of the previous year (Q2 FY2020: EUR 94.7 million). Adjusted for currency effects, revenues 
increased by 10.6 percent. Stabilus recorded a strong recovery with double-digit growth rates in the market segments 
Distributors, Independent Aftermarket, E-commerce (DIAMEC) as well as Mobility. 
For Q2 FY2021 in total, the Industrial business unit accounted for 41 percent (Q2 FY2020: 43 percent) of Stabilus' 
Group revenue, and the two automotive business units Powerise and Gas Spring accounted for 59 percent (Q2 FY2020: 57 
percent). 
Adjusted EBIT margin of 15.6 percent in the second quarter 
Adjusted operating profit (adjusted EBIT^[1]) increased by 22.2 percent to EUR 38.0 million in Q2 FY2021 (Q2 FY2020: 
EUR 31.1 million). This corresponds to an adjusted EBIT margin of 15.6 percent, compared to 14.1 percent in the same 
quarter of the previous year, Q2 FY2020. 
In Q2 FY2021, profit was EUR 25.9 million, compared to EUR 18.1 million in the same quarter of the previous year. Free 
cash flow before acquisitions (Adj. FCF^[1]) rose sharply to EUR 28.8 million, compared to EUR 13.0 million in Q2 
FY2020. 
Forecast for fiscal year 2021 revised upwards 
As already communicated at the time of the publication of the preliminary figures on April 12, 2021, Stabilus is 
raising its forecast for the financial year 2021 against the backdrop of the business performance in the first half of 
FY2021. The company now expects revenues of between EUR 900 million and EUR 950 million (previously: EUR 850 million to 
900 million euros) with an adjusted EBIT margin of 13 percent to 15 percent (previously: 12 percent to 13 percent). 
The interim report for the second quarter of fiscal 2021 is available in English and can be downloaded on the company's 
website at Investors / Financial Reports & Presentations.
