SNP Achieves Significant Increase in Revenue and Earnings in the First Half of 2022, Confirms Growth Targets
Heidelberg, August 10, 2022 – SNP Schneider-Neureither & Partner SE (ISIN: DE0007203705), a leading global provider of solutions for digital transformation processes and software-based data migrations, has today published its report for the first six months of 2022. Revenue increased to € 83.3 million (H1 2021: € 75.1 million). EBIT reached a volume of € 1.8 million and thus increased significantly, by € 2.9 million (H1 2021: € -1.1 million). In addition, the company is confirming its forecast for 2022.
“We can look back on the strongest six months in our company’s history in terms of revenue, and have achieved a positive half-year result for the first time since 2016. This trend is impressive confirmation that we are on the right track with the implementation of our ‘ELEVATE’ strategic program,” says Michael Eberhardt, CEO of SNP SE. “Transformation processes and data management remain essential to our company’s long-term success. We will continue to expand our position in a challenging market environment with the next generation of our CrystalBridge software platform, which we presented in June. We are particularly confident about the development of our partner and software business. We expect an additional growth spurt in the second half of the year and are confirming our forecast.”
Group revenue increased by 10.1% in the first half of the year to € 83.3 million (H1 2021: € 75.1 million). Revenue increased even more strongly in like-for-like terms*, and was around 14% higher than in the same period in the previous year. All regions contributed to this growth. Earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) reached € 1.8 million, and were thus significantly higher than the previous year’s level of € -1.1 million. The EBIT margin was 2.2%. At € 42.3 million, revenue in the second quarter of 2022 was at roughly the same level as the previous year (Q2 2021: € 42.6 million). EBIT in the same period came to € 0.7 million and was thus below the previous year (Q2 2021: € 1.7 million).
All in all, SNP successfully drove forward the implementation of its “ELEVATE” growth strategy in the first half-year of 2022. This is particularly evident in the growth of its software and partner business: Software revenue was slightly higher than in the previous year, at € 23.8 million. Adjusted for “up-front” contracts, the Software business segment grew by 25%. The figure for the previous year included partner contracts with software quotas (amounting to € 4.5 million) immediately impacting revenue and earnings. At the same time, the revenue achieved through partner companies increased significantly by 59% and reached a volume of around € 23 million (2021: € 14.5 million); this represents an overall revenue share of approximately 28% (2021: 19%).
Thanks to the successful development of its business activities in the first six months of 2022, SNP is now well-positioned to achieve strong growth in the second half of the year. SNP gained numerous renowned new customers in the reporting period – including Anheuser-Busch InBev, Saudi Aramco, Celanese, Musimundo, Schäffler and Swiss Federal Railways. Due to the uncertain economic environment, customer have adopted a more cautious approach when it comes to signing multiple-year contracts. Order entry in the first six months of 2022 totaled € 82.6 million, around 10 % below the figure for the same period in the previous year (H1 2021: € 91.9 million). However, in like-for-like terms*, order entry was around 4% higher than the previous year’s level. In addition, order entries in the strategically important partner business rose by around 3% to € 27.9 million.
As in the previous year, the management expects to see stronger growth momentum in the second half of the year. Moreover, SNP expects that the consistent implementation of its ELEVATE growth strategy will reflect positively on its financial figures in the future. In this context, the company is confirming its forecast for 2022 as well as its mid-term forecast.
For 2022 as a whole, SNP still expects that
*As pro forma key figures, the like-for-like key figures for the first six months of 2021 differ from the reported key figures due to the addition of the key figures for Datavard and EXA in the first six months of 2021 (EXA prior to its acquisition date of March 1, 2021) and the elimination of the key figures for SNP Poland in the first six months of 2021.
