SURTECO GROUP SE: Strong start to the year in the first quarter of 2021 with sales growth of 10 % and increase in 
earnings of 61 % compared with the previous year in spite of significantly increased cost of materials and procurement 
EBITDA margin is 16.9 % and EBIT margin is 11.4 %. 
- Sales revenues for 2020 are 3 % below the year-earlier figure after adjustment for company divestment and foreign 
exchange rate effects. Earnings for 2020 are significantly above previous years. 
- Dividend payout of EUR 0.80 planned for 2020. 
- Group sales for 2021 anticipated to increase to between EUR 650 and 675 million. EBIT is anticipated in corridor 
between EUR 47 and 52 million. 
Buttenwiesen, 30 April 2021 - The sales of the SURTECO Group at EUR 627.0 million in the business year 2020 were below 
the year-earlier value of EUR 675.3 million. Adjusted by the North American impregnating business divested in 2019 and 
exchange rate effects, the fall in sales was only 3 %. In spite of the pandemic-related fall in Group sales, earnings 
before financial result and income tax (EBIT) adjusted for one-off effects in the business year 2019 improved from EUR 
40.5 million to EUR 46.1 million in the business year 2020. Key factors for this were the successful implementation of 
the first phase of restructuring, lower cost of materials and the surprisingly good development of business during the 
fourth quarter. EBIT recognized in the previous year amounted to EUR 21.1 million. Net profit increased more than 
threefold from EUR 9.4 million to EUR 33.7 million. Against this background, the Management Board and the Supervisory Board 
will submit a resolution to the Annual General Meeting of SURTECO GROUP SE being held on 23 June 2021 proposing a 
payout of EUR 0.80 per share. This corresponds to a payout rate of 37 %. In the previous year, no dividend was paid on 
account of the coronavirus pandemic. 
"Thanks to the huge efforts made by everybody in the company in 2020, SURTECO successfully overcame the massive effects 
of the coronavirus pandemic. In view of the recovering global economy, we will target significant sales growth in 2021 
and an EBIT in the corridor between EUR 47 and 52 million," was the confident prediction of Wolfgang Moyses, Chairman of 
the Management Board of SURTECO GROUP SE. 
Balance sheet quality continues to improve - free cash flow increases to EUR 52.0 million in 2020 
In 2020, SURTECO improved an already robust balance sheet quality. Against the background of an increase in balance 
sheet total from EUR 780.3 million to EUR 798.8 million, the company posted an equity ratio of 46.7 % (2019: 45.4 %) on 31 
December 2020. Net financial debt fell substantially from EUR 179.9 million to EUR 144.7 million, the gearing (level of 
debt) fell correspondingly from 51 % to 39 %. The significantly positive earnings development and focused investment 
activity ensured that the free cash flow increased from EUR 47.9 million to 52.0 million. This puts the balance sheet and 
the financial position of the Group on a very sound footing for the planned growth in future. 
Outlook for 2021: Positive development in the first quarter justifies optimism for significant increase in sales and 
good earnings development 
In the first quarter of 2021, SURTECO succeeded in continuing the good performance of the second half year in 2020. As 
a consequence, Group sales increased by 10 % to EUR 188.5 million (2020: EUR 171.6 million). In spite of significantly 
increased cost of materials and procurement bottlenecks, EBIT rose disproportionately from EUR 13.4 million to EUR 21.5 
million on the back of efficiency improvements. Consequently, EBIT in the Segment Decoratives climbed from EUR 10.2 
million to EUR 18.3 million and in the Segment Technicals from EUR 1.9 million to EUR 2.3 million. EBIT for the Segment 
Pprofiles amounted to EUR 3.1 million after EUR 3.4 million in the previous year. 
In spite of an expected easing in demand during the second half of the year and the ongoing lack of certainty in 
relation to the coronavirus situation, the company is anticipating an increase in sales to between EUR 650 and EUR 675 
million for the year overall in 2021. Group EBIT is expected in the corridor between EUR 47 and 52 million.
