Viscom AG impresses with positive business performance in the first half of 2021.


Revenue: € 34,069 thousand (previous year: € 29,468 thousand)
Incoming orders: € 45,477 thousand (previous year: € 25,304 thousand)
Order backlog: € 30,346 thousand (previous year: € 11,775 thousand)
EBIT: € 507 thousand (previous year: € -3,873 thousand)


Hanover, 12 August 2021 - The global economy is continuing to recover and return to growth. Viscom AG is also clearly feeling the effects of this positive global development. The mechanical engineering firm from Lower Saxony received incoming orders of € 24,736 thousand in the second quarter of 2021 alone (previous year: € 9,376 thousand), representing a 2.6-fold increase on the previous year and the strongest Q2 incoming order situation ever recorded in the history of the Viscom Group. The company received orders totalling € 45,477 thousand (previous year: € 25,304 thousand) in the first six months of 2021, an enormous year-on-year upturn of about 80 %.

Good incoming orders resulted in a higher order backlog of € 30,346 thousand (previous year: € 11,775 thousand), creating very good production capacities for the months ahead for Viscom AG. Revenue amounted to € 34,069 thousand, 15.6 % higher than the previous year's figure (€ 29,468 thousand). The implemented cost reduction programs and savings measures were vigorously followed and enforced again in the first half of 2021. With revenue up on the previous year, this considerably improved operating profit (EBIT) year on year. Operating profit totalled € 507 thousand (previous year: € -3,873 thousand), corresponding to an EBIT-Margin of 1.5 % (previous year: -13.1 %). Net profit for the period amounted to € 387 thousand (previous year: € -3,957 thousand).

360 people were employed at the Hanover site at the end of the first half of the year, 55 of whom were working reduced hours to varying degrees in June. The option to reduce working hours expired at the end of the first half of 2021 and was not extended.

The Viscom Group's focus for the market launch of new products in this financial year is on automated X-ray inspection (AXI) systems. This covers a whole range of products that collectively called the "iX7059 series". The systems perform a range of tasks in addition to conventional assembly inspection and expand Viscom's spectrum of AXI applications. The iX7059 Heavy Duty can also be used to inspect bulky objects that weigh up to 40 kg and are up to 230 mm high, such as inverters for electric vehicles or power modules in the semiconductor market. Consumer end devices such as smartphones, tablets, mini PCs and all types of computer accessories can be checked using the iX7059 Device Inspection. The 5G market and the market for server boards are covered by the new iX7059 PCB Inspection XL, which can inspect circuit boards up to 1,600 mm long and 660 mm wide. Various products for inspecting battery cells are subsumed under the name iX7059 Battery Cell Inspection, e.g. iXcell 2d track, iXcell Carrier and iXcell CT.

Viscom believes it is well positioned to return to sustainable and profitable growth. The management continues to anticipate target revenue and incoming orders of between € 70 million and € 80 million in the 2021 financial year. The EBIT-Margin is likely to be between 3 % and 9 %, with EBIT of between € 2.1 million and € 7.2 million. The development of incoming orders and revenue in 2021 will largely depend on the overall economic situation and the ongoing development of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as increasing supply bottlenecks, chiefly in the automotive industry.

The consolidated interim report as at 30 June 2021 is available now in the Company/Investor Relations section of the website at www.viscom.com.
