paragon presents strategy and forecast figures for the next five years

  • Increasingly rising order backlog should fully compensate for the sale of the subsidiary paragon semvox GmbH already in 2023 - no impact on the operating business of the other four business units expected
  • Turnover in the coming year as in 2022 again planned at approx. EUR 170 million - the sold subsidiary paragon semvox GmbH is already no longer included in this figure
  • EBITDA margin expected between 12 and 15% in 2023
  • Regional expansion in the American market also a focus of the five-year plan
  • In the medium term, the business unit "Power" with innovative lithium-ion-based starter batteries is to become the biggest growth driver
  • 2027 sales target well above EUR 300 million


Delbrück, 5 December 2022 - paragon GmbH & Co. KGaA [ISIN DE0005558696] today presented key business planning data for the next five years.

On 1 December 2022, the direct supplier to the automotive industry reported the successful sale of its subsidiary paragon semvox GmbH and the good solution in the interests of all semvox employees. Even under the aegis of the new shareholder, it is ensured that all vehicle manufacturers and also non-automotive customers will continue to be served without any cutbacks.

In the 2022 financial year, paragon semvox GmbH will generate sales revenues of around EUR 13.5 million, i.e. approx. 8% of paragon's total expected annual sales of EUR 170 million. As the subsidiary paragon semvox GmbH, which represents the "Digital Assistance" business unit, operates largely independently on the market as a software manufacturer, the forthcoming sale will have no impact on paragon's other four business units.

"With immediate effect, the business unit Digital Assistance will be treated as a business unit held for sale in the paragon consolidated balance sheet in accordance with IFRS 5," explains paragon CFO Dr Martin Esser. This means that the revenues of this business unit will no longer be reported in the consolidated financial statements. As a result, paragon now expects to report approximately EUR 156.5 million in revenues in the 2022 consolidated financial statements.

But already in the coming year, revenues are expected to rise again to EUR 170 million, even without the business unit Digital Assistance. "Despite all the challenges that everyone is suffering from, we are very confident that we will be able to maintain the revenue level of the record year 2022 due to our continued growth in orders," explains Klaus Dieter Frers, founder and Chairman of the Management Board of paragon GmbH, the personally liable partner of paragon GmbH & Co. KGaA. An EBITDA margin of between 12% and 15% is expected for 2023.

Even without the business unit Digital Assistance, according to the company's plans, paragon GmbH & Co. KGaA should continue to grow strongly in the future. In the course of the coming years, the management believes that the new business unit Power will become the central sales driver due to large-scale orders for lithium-ion-based starter batteries. These innovative batteries can also be used for the on-board power supply of electric vehicles. According to current planning, the company expects to significantly exceed the EUR 300 million revenue threshold in 2027. At the same time, profitability is expected to increase due to economies of scale, cost savings and price adjustments. "The expected significant reduction in debt will release new forces," Dr Martin Esser elaborates.

"In the new plan period 2023 to 2027, we will significantly expand our existing presence in the American market. We still have a lot of untapped potential here, which we have already addressed in a first step by establishing local sales near Detroit," reports Klaus Frers.
