Biel/Bienne, January 26, 2022, 7.00 a.m. - The Mikron Group achieved a significant improvement in earnings in the 2021 business year. The key drivers of this encouraging development were the restructuring successfully completed in 2020 as well as the significant sales increases reported by the Mikron Tool division of the Mikron Machining Solutions business segment and by the Mikron Automation business segment. Provisional, as yet unaudited, closing figures show an increase in Group sales from CHF 257.8 million in 2020 to CHF 289.5 million in 2021 (+12.3%).


Order intake

At CHF 305.7 million, the Mikron Group posted a 14.4% increase in order intake compared with 2020 (CHF 267.3 million). The Mikron Automation business segment accounted for CHF 170.5 million of order intake, and the Mikron Machining Solutions business segment CHF 135.4 million.


Net sales and order backlog

At CHF 289.5 million, annual net sales are 12.3% higher than the previous year's figure (CHF 257.8 million). The Mikron Automation business segment reported sales of CHF 176.7 million (previous year: CHF 161.7 million, +9.3%), while the Mikron Machining Solutions business segment saw an increase from CHF 96.3 million to CHF 112.9 million (+17.2%). At CHF 176.7 million, the Group's year-end order backlog is 9.3% higher than at the close of 2020 (CHF 161.6 million).



For the 2021 business year, Mikron is expecting an EBIT margin at the level of the half-year closing, i.e. approximately 6%.


Mikron will announce the Group's detailed closing figures for 2021 at the Media and Analyst Conference on March 11, 2022.
