  • Medium-term revenue target for the service business of around €400 million
    brought forward to 2021
  • Economic climate and coronavirus make 2020 a year of transition
  • ‘Transform for Growth’ efficiency program launched

COLOGNE, GERMANY – EQS
Newswire – 3 March 2020 – DEUTZ, one of the world’s leading
manufacturers of innovative drive systems, today published its provisional
figures for revenue and the EBIT margin before exceptional items for 2019. With
an increase in revenue to €1,840.8 million and an EBIT margin before
exceptional items of 4.3 percent, the updated forecast for 2019 has been
achieved.

 

Dr. Frank Hiller, Chairman of the Board of Management of DEUTZ AG,
commented, “We have successfully pressed ahead with the implementation of
our growth initiatives and are thus still on track to achieve our medium-term
targets for 2022.” Revenue is expected to rise to more than €2 billion by
then, and the EBIT margin before exceptional items to at least 7 to 8 percent.
“The expansion of the high-margin service business is a mainstay of our
growth strategy. We now hope to achieve our 2022 revenue target of
approximately €400 million a year earlier, in 2021,” said Dr. Hiller.

DEUTZ expects a decline in business in 2020. The main reason for this is the
downturn in key customer industries as a result of economic conditions. This
led to a low level of orders on hand at the end of 2019, a situation that is
continuing this year. Growth is expected to drop off particularly noticeably in
the first half of 2020 following a weak start. The establishment of second
source suppliers will also have an impact on earnings. Furthermore, the DEUTZ
engine business will be affected this year by customers selling the inventories
of engines they had built up before new emissions standards came into force.

 

The outbreak of coronavirus is taking a significant toll on international
transport, travel, industrial logistics chains, and production capacity, both
in China and globally. As things stand, DEUTZ is not aware of any specific
issues at its suppliers. Due to the globalized nature of its logistics routes,
however, DEUTZ can no longer exclude the possibility of its business and its
supply chain being affected.

Consequently, DEUTZ expects the year-on-year fall in revenue in 2020 to be
in the low double-digit percentage range. For the EBIT margin before
exceptional items, the Company expects a decline relative to the prior year
figure in the mid double-digit percentage range.

Dr. Frank Hiller added, “In order to counter the forecast impact on
earnings, we have launched an efficiency program, ‘Transform for Growth’.”
This is a global program to strengthen competitiveness by reducing complexity
and increasing efficiency along the whole value chain.
