SCHLATTER INDUSTRIES AG - SIX SWISS EXCHANGE: STRN - ISIN: CH0002277314 Ad hoc announcement pursuant to article 53 LR   

S c h l i e r e n, 11 August 2022 The Schlatter Group posted an order intake of CHF 94.6 million in the first half of 2022, an increase of 59% on the same period of the previous year (first half of 2021: CHF 59.6 million). Net sales were up by 14.6% at CHF 51.3 million (first half of 2021: CHF 44.8 million). At CHF 115.0 million, the order backlog as at 30 June 2022 is also a significant 160% higher than in the previous year (31.12.2021: CHF 71.8 million). Operating profit (EBIT) for the first half of 2022 totalled CHF 2.9 million corresponding to an EBIT margin of 5.7% (first half of 2021: EBIT CHF 1.6 million; EBIT margin of 3.5%). For the first half of the year the Schlatter Group is reporting a positive net result of CHF 2.0 million (first half of 2021: CHF 1.9 million).

Following a substantial rise in demand for Schlatter products in 2021, accompanied by high order intake, new orders continued to rise in the first half of 2022. In particular, orders for reinforcing mesh systems were high due to steel prices and above-average demand was registered for weaving machinery for the paper industry. However, sales growth was held back by our suppliers’ delivery problems. Also, a sharp rise in prices of sourced materials led to higher costs. Nevertheless, in the first half of 2022 net sales were considerably higher than in the comparable prior-year period and the operating profit (EBIT) increased to CHF 2.9 million (first half of 2021: CHF 1.6 million). The Schlatter Group ended the first half of 2022 with a very high order backlog, which ensures capacity utilization even at this early stage until well into the second half of 2023. The economic situation points to a more challenging market environment in the second half of 2022. A sharp hike in material prices, delays in supply chains on the procurement side and the strength of the Swiss franc will weigh on profitability in the second half of the year. In addition, the Group expects a significantly higher need for provisions for pension obligations due to high inflation in Germany.
