  • Sales of € 9.7 million at the upper end of the target range according to preliminary figures
  • EBITDA margin due to special effects 37 %, from current business 21 % (in relation to total performance)
  • Strengthened balance sheet with 53.4 % equity ratio

According to preliminary figures, ifa systems AG, a listed specialist for health IT applications in ophthalmology, increased its sales to € 9.7 million in the 2019 fiscal year (previous year: € 6.6 million). The licensing of the database of the American subsidiary in the amount of € 2.5 million had a decisive influence on the strong increase. Adjusted for this effect, growth amounted to 7.8 percent. The operating result (EBITDA) tripled to € 3.9 million. EBIT reached € 1.2 million (previous year: € 0.1 million) after depreciation in the amount of € 2.7 million, € 1.4 million of which was due to impairment of intangible assets as a result of the portfolio valuation after the takeover of the majority interest by NEXUS AG. Operating cash flow also developed positively as planned and amounted to € 3.4 million. Financial liabilities were halved to € 3.0 million.

"The past business year was extraordinarily successful in every respect", says Jörg Polis, CEO of ifa systems AG. "Sales and profitability have developed at the upper end of expectations. At the same time the balance sheet was strengthened. We can be very satisfied with what we have achieved".

Financial year 2020

Sales and earnings in 2019 were significantly influenced by special effects. The introduction of the telematics infrastructure has largely been completed and similar revenues from the licensing of the database of the American subsidiary Inoveon cannot be budgeted for the fiscal year 2020. They would always represent a non-recurring effect. For the 2020 financial year, the Management Board therefore expects only moderate growth in revenue from current business and a positive operating result (EBIT). Further details of the forecast will be published with the annual report probably on April 27, 2020.
