The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.

In view of better-than-expected H1'21 trading, driven by robust growth of the underlying business and higher-than-expected SARS-CoV-2 momentum, SYNLAB is raising its FY'21 guidance.

Revenue is now expected to be within a range of EUR 3.2-3.3 billion in FY'21 (previously: "comfortably exceed EUR 3.0 billion") with total growth expected within a range of 22-25% (previously: ~17%) compared with FY'20.

Adjusted EBITDA is expected to exceed EUR 925 million in FY'21 (new guidance), compared with EUR 679 million in FY'20.

Unlevered free cash flow (pre-M&A) is expected to exceed EUR 500 million in FY'21 (previously: EUR 300-350 million) compared with EUR 272 million in FY'20.

SYNLAB will publish the full H1'21 financial results and provide further details with its non-audited results on 12 August 2021.
