Delticom AG: Earnings forecast for the full year 2020 raised
Hanover, December 01, 2020 – Delticom AG’s management (German Securities Code (WKN) 514680, ISIN DE0005146807, stock market symbol DEX), Europe’s leading online retailer for tyres and complete wheels, is again raising its full-year earnings forecast today as a result of the com-pany’s good operating performance to date in the current fourth quarter of 2020, in particular in the field of project development. The Delticom group’s EBITDA for the full year is now regarded as achievable in a range between € +14 to +17 million (previous forecast: € +5 to +8 million). In view of the fact that restructuring costs of around € 7 million are still expected to be incurred, the oper-ating EBITDA achievable in 2020, including the contribution from the field of project development, will accordingly be in a new range of € +21 million to +24 million (previous forecast: € +12 million to +15 million). As a result, Delticom AG’s management believes that it will be able to record a positive consolidated net income for the year as a whole and thus one year earlier than planned. In terms of revenues for the year as a whole, current planning continues to indicate that the lower end of the forecast corridor of € 550 – 570 million can be achieved.
