Thanks to a strong order situation, Atoss’ sales are expected to increase to EUR 110 million in 2022, as the company announced in Munich on Monday, January 3, 2022. Atoss had previously targeted 106 million. The SDax group is raising its medium-term forecast by one percentage point to an annual increase in sales of 13 to 17 percent by 2025.
According to preliminary figures, Atoss increased its sales by around 13 percent to EUR 97.1 million in 2021. Earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) rose by only four percent to 27.2 million euros, which caused the group to have high investment costs justified. The EBIT margin fell from 30.4 to 28 percent. For the current year, Atoss continues to expect a margin of “at least” 25 percent. Atoss wants to pay its shareholders a dividend of 1.82 euros per share, which would be 15 cents more than a year earlier. Atoss intends to present the annual report on March 11th. (dpa/rw)
