_Munich, August 14, 2019 - _Allgeier SE (ISIN DE000A2GS633, WKN A2GS63)
achieves further revenue and EBITDA growth in the first half of 2019
(January 1, 2019 - June 30, 2019) in line with its planning for the 2019
financial year, according to preliminary figures. On the one hand, the two
strategic Group segments Technology and Enterprise Services achieved revenue
growth of 33 percent and earnings growth (adjusted EBITDA) of 31 percent
with a corresponding margin of 13 percent according to preliminary figures.
In the same period, the Experts segment recorded a decline in sales of 7
percent and a decline in EBITDA of EUR 5.7 million. The reason for the
development in the Experts segment is the strategic realignment of the
business already planned in the past, which in the first half of 2019 in
particular was accompanied by expected declines in sales and earnings as
well as one-off burdens on earnings.

Business development in the first half of 2019

According to preliminary figures, consolidated sales in the first half of
2019 rose by 16 percent to EUR 380.8 million compared with the first six
months of the previous year (continuing operations of the previous year: EUR
327.5 million). Preliminary value added (defined as total output less sales
and personnel expenses directly attributable to sales) increased by 18
percent to EUR 106.1 million (previous year: EUR 90.0 million). Preliminary
adjusted Group EBITDA for the period (EBITDA before effects that qualify as
extraordinary or non-periodic) amounted to EUR 29.0 million (previous year:
EUR 26.4 million), corresponding to an increase of 10 percent compared with
the same period in 2018. The increase in earnings is driven by the strategic
Group segments Technology and Enterprise Services and is in line with the
Group's forecast expectations for the current year. According to preliminary
figures, the two segments increased their adjusted EBITDA by 31 percent to
EUR 31.8 million (previous year: EUR 24.3 million), while the Experts
segment achieved an adjusted EBITDA of EUR 1.5 million (previous year: EUR
6.3 million). Preliminary Group EBITDA grew by 15 percent to EUR 25.7
million in the reporting period (previous year: EUR 22.3 million). The
preliminary consolidated EBIT amounted to EUR 10.6 million (previous year:
EUR 11.1 million).

Business development in the second quarter of 2019

In the second quarter of 2019 (April 1, 2019 - June 30, 2019), the Group
increased sales by 11 percent year-on-year to EUR 191.1 million (previous
year: EUR 172.4 million) according to preliminary figures. In the same
period, preliminary value added rose by 16 percent to EUR 54.2 million
(previous year: EUR 46.8 million). At EUR 14.9 million, the preliminary
adjusted Group EBITDA was 6 percent below the result for the same period
last year (previous year: EUR 15.9 million). Preliminary Group EBITDA for
the second quarter amounted to EUR 12.3 million (previous year: EUR 12.8
million), corresponding to a decline of 3 percent compared with the same
period of the previous year. The preliminary consolidated EBIT (earnings
before interest and taxes) for the same period amounted to EUR 4.8 million
(previous year: EUR 6.9 million).

Acquisition of Farabi Technology Middle East LLC and SOLUTIONS4MOBILITY

On April 2, 2019, Allgeier Nagarro Holding GmbH, Munich, signed contracts
for the acquisition of Farabi Technology Middle East LLC and
SOLUTIONS4MOBILITY L.L.C., both based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The
companies are experts in the development of mobile applications to support
digital transformation. The transaction gives Allgeier valuable access to
market- and industry-leading clients in the Middle East and strengthens its
advisory and implementation expertise in local markets. The companies were
consolidated for the first time on 1 April 2019.

Implementation of IFRS 16

The standard for accounting for rental and lease agreements (IFRS 16), which
must be applied from 1 January 2019 in accordance with IFRS, was implemented
in the first half of 2019. The Allgeier Group uses the retrograde method for
the conversion, which means that the previous year's figures have been
adjusted to the reporting for the first half of 2019 and the comparability
of the figures is ensured.

Key balance sheet data as of June 30, 2019

Preliminary consolidated equity increased to EUR 158.9 million as of June
30, 2019 (December 31, 2018: EUR 130.6 million). According to preliminary
figures, the Allgeier Group had cash and cash equivalents of EUR 72.7
million at its disposal at the end of the second quarter of 2019 (December
31, 2018: EUR 77.0 million). According to preliminary figures,
interest-bearing financial liabilities fell to EUR 174.7 million as of June
30, 2019 (December 31, 2018: EUR 181.7 million) - including EUR 148.3
million in non-current financial liabilities (December 31, 2018: EUR 150.3
The preliminary balance sheet total at the end of the second quarter of 2019
amounted to EUR 553.6 million (December 31, 2018: EUR 536.6 million).

Outlook for the second half of 2019

Against the background of the assessment of the economic environment and
business development, the Management Board is sticking for the current
financial year to the sales and earnings forecast for the Group as a whole
made in the 2018 Annual Report.


All figures for the first half of 2019 have been calculated in accordance
with IFRS and have not been audited. The half-year financial report 2019 of
Allgeier SE will be published on August 29, 2019 and can then be viewed at
