Interim Management Report

General economic conditions

Macroeconomic activity fell by 1.8% in the first three months of 2021 compared to the previous quarter. The strong recovery of the German economy from the first corona wave thus experienced a temporary slowdown.

The decisive reason for this was the decline in value creation in the construction industry. Furthermore, trade and contact-intensive service companies also had to contend with losses due to closures.

Since the end of April, the situation with regard to infections with COVID-19 has improved significantly and there has been a clear improvement in vaccination numbers. Trade has gained strength thanks to infection control measures and people's mobility has also increased significantly, which is also driving consumption. The gross domestic product in the second quarter of 2021 increased by 1.5% (adjusted for price, seasonal and calendar effects) compared to the first quarter of 2021.

In retail trade excluding motor vehicles, sales rose again. In May, they increased by 4.2% compared to the previous month. The main reasons for this growth are the improvement in the pandemic and the associated easing. The retail trade with non-food products recorded a significant increase in turnover of 6.7% compared to the previous month.

The growing lack of building materials, in contrast, has clearly worsened at the end of the first half of the year. The supply of raw materials is a cause for concern due to the massive increase in energy and raw material prices. In addition, supply bottlenecks and delays are slowing down the recovery of the overall economy.

Development within the sector

Despite the decline in the ifo Business Climate Index (from the Leibniz Institute for Economic Research at the University of Munich, one of the most important early indicators for the development of the German economy), the business situation in the construction industry has im- proved. According to the Federal Statistical Office in Wiesbaden, the construction industry recorded an increase in new orders of 8.4% in May compared to the same month of the previous year (real, calendar and seasonally adjusted). Compared to the previous month of April, incoming orders fell by 1.3% (real, calendar and seasonally adjusted).

Companies in the main construction sector were more satisfied with their current situation and the expectations indicator rose for the third time in a row.

In contrast, however, the index in the manufacturing sector de- clined. The reason for this decrease was the less optimistic expectations of the companies. Capacity utilisation shows an increase from

85.9% to 87.1%. Problems, though, are the shortage of intermediate products and the shortage of skilled workers.

In the meantime, the situation regarding material shortages in the construction industry has dramatically worsened. Limited availability of raw materials and longer delivery times are putting pressure on building material producers. The problems range from a lack of raw mate- rials, production bottlenecks, a shortage of freight containers to a lack of packaging material.

The business situation in the service sector also worsened. Service providers were more satisfied with their current business, but less optimistic about the coming months.

In trade, the index has also fallen. Supply bottlenecks are also a major problem in the trade sector.

Profit situation, capital status and financial situation

Numbers related to previous year in brackets

Profit situation

The Uzin Utz Group had a very successful first half of 2021.

In the first half of 2021, the Group achieved revenues of EUR 221.7 million (186.9). The foreign share rose by 2.3 percentage points to 62.5% (60.2).

The Earnings before interests and taxes (EBIT) of EUR 29.0 million (15.5) increased strongly compared to the previous year's result.

Earnings before taxes (EBT) were also significantly higher than the previous year at EUR 28.4 million (14.6).

Consolidated earnings after taxes increased markedly to EUR 20.5 million (10.2).

The Group's material usage ratio of 43.1% (43.1%) corresponds exactly to the previous year's level.

The depreciation volume increased to EUR 7.6 million (7.2). Other operating expenses increased from EUR 35.2 million in the

previous year to EUR 37.4 million in 2021.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) of EUR 36.6 million were EUR 14.0 million higher than in the same period of the previous year (22.7).

The financial result of EUR -0.6 million was EUR 0.2 million above the previous year (-0.8).

Employees

In the first half of 2021, the average number of employees increased from 1,326 to 1,370 compared to the previous year. In addition, an average of 43 young people were given an apprenticeship (50). The personnel cost ratio fell by 2.2 percentage points from 26.8% to 24.6%. In absolute terms, personnel costs rose by around EUR 4.4 million from EUR 50.1 million to EUR 54.5 million.

Capital status

For better comparability all previous year's figures refer to the balance sheet at the due date June 30, 2020.

The balance sheet total increased by EUR 18.9 million to EUR 348.9 million (330.0).

The share of Group fixed assets declined from 56.3% to 54.6%, the remaining assets thus correspond to 45.4% (43.7) of the balance sheet total.

Receivables from customers rose from EUR 46.6 million to EUR 55.2 million .

Inventories increased by EUR 1.6 million from EUR 52.8 million to EUR 54.5 million.

With the exception of investment property, all assets are still operationally necessary.

Cash and cash equivalents increased by EUR 4.4 million from EUR 30.5 million to EUR 34.8 million.

Financial position

The equity amounts to EUR 204.0 million (174.4) and, with a share of 58.5% (52.8) of the balance sheet total, continues to be well above the industry average.

Current financial liabilities fell by a total of EUR 17.0 million to EUR 18.3 million (35.3).

Trade payables increased from EUR 15.0 million to EUR 24.4 mil-

lion.

Current provisions grew by a total of EUR 4.6 million to EUR 26.1 million (21.5).

The share of current liabilities in the balance sheet total fell from 25.5% in the previous year to 24.7% in 2021.

The share of long-term liabilities in the balance sheet total also fell to 16.9% (21.7) and amounted to EUR 58.8 million after EUR 71.5 million in the previous year.

Forecast

The vaccination steps against Covid-19 are gradually bringing about a removal of the existing economic restrictions. By the end of 2021, this will lead to economic recovery in trade and services. Due to bottlenecks in the supply of raw materials, however, the industrial boom is likely to cool down slightly in the short term.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) expects the global economy to grow by 4.9% in 2022, which is 0.5 percentage points more than assumed in April. This development is expected to be driven by stronger growth in the industrialised countries (4.4%), mainly due to higher government spending in the USA and the EU. Again, the gross

4

5

domestic product (GDP) of emerging and developing countries is projected to grow by 5.2%. This corresponds to an increase of 0.2 percentage points compared to the April estimate.

The global economic recovery is, however, dependent on the further development of the pandemic. According to the IMF, the growth forecast for the USA is 4.9% for next year. The German economy is also expected to rise more strongly in 2022. After the forecast of 3.4% in April, the IMF now expects growth of 4.1%. For 2021, an increase of 3.6% is still expected. The reason for the IMF's high growth forecast for the global economy is the recession in many countries in the previous year due to the Corona crisis, which is now being made up for.

Given the difficult situation on the procurement markets, the Uzin Utz Group expects further challenges in the second half of 2021. Due to the increasing duration of supply bottlenecks in the procurement of raw materials, production restrictions are also expected in the coming half-year. In addition, above-average price increases are expected, which would have a negative impact on the further course of business.

On the basis of the strong first half of 2021, the Uzin Utz Group is nevertheless confident about the coming half-year. Contrary to the forecast in the 2020 annual report, the management expects earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) for the 2021 financial year to be above the previous year due to the positive first half of the year.
