- Group turnover decreases to EUR 54.6 million (EUR 73.9 million in Q1-2021) due to product portfolio adjustment

Berlin, 23 May 2022 –HAEMATO AG (ISIN: DE000289VV1) announces figures for the first quarter of 2022. According to these figures, the Group's consolidated revenue fell to EUR 54.6 million in the first quarter (previous year: EUR 73.9 million). EBITDA fell from EUR 2.8 million in the same quarter of the previous year to EUR 2.3 million. EBIT amounted to EUR 2.0 million in the first quarter of 2022 (previous year: EUR 2.4 million). The EBITDA margin increased from 3.8% (same quarter of the previous year) to 4.2%. The EBIT margin rose from 3.3% in the previous year to 3.6%. This also includes certain follow-up costs for the restructuring of the group.
"We are thus continuing on a good path of steadily improving our EBIT margin through consistent product management. Compared to the first quarter of 2020, in which the EBIT margin was just 0.9%, we have already been able to quadruple the margin," says Patrick Brenske, CEO of HAEMATO AG.
The decline in turnover of around 26% is in line with the ongoing optimisation of the product portfolio from the “Specialty Pharma” segment towards higher-margin products. In addition, special effects related to the reporting date were recorded, which led to a shift in sales volumes from the end of the first quarter to the beginning of the second quarter.
The new Lifestyle and Aesthetics segment contributed disproportionately to the result and will be further expanded in the future. Preparations for the approval of a proprietary botulinum toxin for the European market are proceeding according to plan.
Equity rose from EUR 144.7 million as of 31 December 2021 to EUR 146.1 million as of 31 March 2022. The equity ratio increased accordingly from 79.5% to 80.3%.
The company confirms its guidance for the 2022 business year and continues to expect an EBIT of EUR 8 to 10 million.
The Annual General Meeting will be held in Berlin on 12 July 2022. The invitation will be sent out approximately six weeks in advance.
