Arbon 25. July 2017
EDAG Engineering Group AG (EDAG) has disclosed preliminary figures for H1 2017.
Revenues levelled slightly below (-3%) previous-year figures of 362 million
Euros. The mainly by ppa-effects adjusted EBIT-margin was at about 4%.

The H1 figures are overall burdened by some special effects. Ramp-up costs for
some projects in Mexico were higher than expected. Moreover EDAG is currently
realigning the personnel structure, in order to be prepared for future customer
requirements. These factors, together with the continued pricing pressure, led
to an extraordinary impact on earnings.

Regardless of these temporary effects, the management considers the overall
market for engineering service providers as intact. The R&D spendings at the
customers are still on a very high respectively growing level. Against the
background of future topics like e-mobility, autonomous driving, connectivity
and industry 4.0, this trend is unbroken. By the recent acquisitions in Sweden
and the USA, EDAG will be consistently aligned to the requirements of the
customers and the markets of the future.

Against this background, the company expects a growth in revenues of up to 5%
and an adjusted EBIT-margin of 4-6% for the full year.

The final numbers for H1 2017 will be published on August 17th, 2017.
