/ Key word(s): Quarter Results
Berlin, 12 May 2022. Eckert & Ziegler Strahlen- und Medizintechnik AG (ISIN DE0005659700, TecDAX) increased its sales by 13% to EUR 49.9 million in the first quarter of 2022. The net profit of EUR 6.7 million or EUR 0.32 per share was below the previous year's quarter. This earnings gap compared to the previous year is due to a one-off effect of around EUR 6.8 million in the first quarter of 2021, in which the Group sold its tumour irradiation business at a profit. Despite the pandemic and the war in Ukraine, the Q1 figures reflect a stable start to the year.
Revenue in the Medical segment was EUR 20.1 million in the first quarter, EUR 1.2 million or 5% below the previous year's figure. Taking into account the loss of sales of EUR 1.1 million due to the deconsolidation of the tumour irradiation business, the sales level was maintained compared to the previous year.
The Isotope Products segment achieved revenue of EUR 29.8 million, which is EUR 7.0 million or about 31% higher than in the first three months of 2021, due to rising oil and gas prices and an associated exceptional demand in radiometric components for energy companies. Around EUR 1.9 million of the increase is attributable to the acquisition of the Argentinian company Tecnonuclear SA in January 2022.
The results of the first quarter of 2022 are in line with the expectations of the Executive Board. The forecast for the 2022 financial year published in March remains unaffected. The Executive Board continues to expect sales of around EUR 200 million and a net profit of around EUR 38 million. The forecast is subject to the assumption that the developments in Ukraine do not result in any major disruptions.
