At the same time, the adjusted EBITDA increased by 8 % to EUR 215 million," said CEO Dr. Dirk Wössner and added, "Worldwide, the COVID-19 pandemic has proven in a dramatic way how crucial well-functioning, efficient healthcare is, and which opportunities arise from digitization of the processes, data processing and information exchange. Many governments have recognized the urgent need for action and have set up large investment programs in the billions, in some cases."

And he emphasized that CGM is targeting significant growth in the future from enhancing services for healthcare professionals with new functionalities, patient portals, synergies and scale effects from the two large acquisitions in the hospital business and the US market, from additional modules in Telematics Infrastructure, new data services and by digitization initiatives such as the Hospital Future Act in Germany.
Dirk Wössner: "Beyond 2021, we expect annual organic revenue growth of 5 % and more with the EBITDA margin increasing again at the same time."
