RATIONAL AG / keyword(s): 2021 forecast
Landsberg am Lech, 23 February 2021
- Very difficult to provide an accurate forecast for 2021
- Slight growth expected
- EBIT margin expected to be at previous year's level
2021 forecast: slight growth, EBIT margin expected to be at previous year's level
Due to the extended protection measures in several countries to prevent the spread of coronavirus, RATIONAL is starting
2021 with caution. The unpredictability of easing or tightening restrictions is additionally unsettling many customers.
The hotel and restaurant customer groups are especially hard hit by these effects.
In view of this development, the Executive Board of RATIONAL AG expects sales volumes and sales revenues to only grow
slightly in 2021. The EBIT margin for the 2021 fiscal year is expected to be at the same level as the previous year.
In the medium to long term, however, the company's management continues to regard RATIONAL's economic and market
situation as good. As the effects of coronavirus tail off and the numerous financial aid packages take effect, market
conditions are likely to return to normal.
Details of the forecast for fiscal year 2021 will be published on 24 March 2021 at the annual results press conference.
In addition, a telephone conference will be held in English in the afternoon of the same day.
