IVU: Record result in the 2020 financial year
EBIT increases by 22%. Significant dividend increase targeted.
Berlin, 24 March 2021 | IVU Traffic Technologies AG remains on its successful path. The Berlin based IT specialist for public transport defies the coronavirus pandemic and once again reports record figures. Revenue grows to €92 million, gross profit to over €70 million and, particularly pleasing, EBIT to €12.8 million – an increase of 22%.
To allow investors to participate in the positive development, the Executive Board and Supervisory Board will propose a dividend of €0.20 per share to the Annual General Meeting on 27 May 2021 – an increase of 25% compared to last year’s distribution.
The result for the 2020 financial year includes the proceeds from the sale of IVU.elect GmbH. Even without this one-off effect, the Executive Board expects the profitable growth to continue in the 2021 financial year with a consolidated revenue of approximately €100 million, a gross profit of approximately €75 million and an operating result (EBIT) of over €13 million.
“Fortunately, the coronavirus pandemic had barely any impact on our business. As a digital company, we were able to carry out a large part of our projects and development work remotely. My thanks go to all colleagues who made this possible with a great deal of commitment and creativity in close cooperation with our customers,” said Martin Müller-Elschner, CEO of IVU Traffic Technologies. “With our broad customer base ranging from small and medium-sized transport companies to large state railways, we are well positioned – also for future growth.”
