First Sensor AG: Adjustment of guidance for fiscal 2022
Based on preliminary figures for the first half of the current fiscal year (Oct. 1, 2021 - Sept. 30, 2022), the Management Board of First Sensor AG ("First Sensor") has determined that, from today's perspective, the achievement of the annual planning, in particular the planned EBIT margin of 5 to 7 percent, is not assured. The deviation in the first half of the year is mainly due to an increase in material costs and supply shortage.
For this reason, the Management Board is revising its guidance and plans to achieve an EBIT margin of -2 to +2 percent in fiscal 2022. Sales are expected to reach 105 to 115 million euros (previously: 110 to 120 million euros) due to changes in the sales structures.
