Outlook

For the Group 2021/22

Probable Corporate Development

Sales confirmed // EBIT reduced

Due to the developments in the 3rd quarter 2021/22 described above, the management board decided to reduce its guidance for financial year 2021/22 with regard to the expected EBIT. It no longer appears possible to fully make up for the previous unplanned burdens in the short term.

According to previous estimates, EBIT in the range of EUR 24 million to EUR 26 million was expected. The management board is now reducing the EBIT forecast to a range of EUR 17 million to EUR 21 million (2020/21: EUR 20.6 million).

By contrast, the sales forecast in the range of EUR 440 million to EUR 460 million in financial year 2021/22 (2020/21: EUR 372.9 million) has been confirmed.

The biggest risk facing delivery of this guidance is therefore posed by economic setbacks. We are currently working on the scheduled integration of our acquisitions and are developing our mid-term targets on this basis and in light of changes in the global economic situation.

Trends in the IT Market

Severe transformation pressure will doubtless prevail across the board, while the pressure on companies to digitalise workflows and business models will increase further. In the process, the role played by corporate IT will shift increasingly towards becoming a business partner in the digital transformation. The shortage of specialists, a lack of strategy, application and technology expertise as well es growing requirements in respect of security and availability when operating the applications and systems are likely to lead to transformation projects increasingly being launched with the involvement of external service providers such as the All for One Group. Particularly those IT providers who are very familiar with their customers' workflows, are recognised process experts, and operate in the still small, but strongly growing IT sub-markets for »new themes« should continue to witness significantly positive momentum im 2022. Sales of IT products and ser­vices are expected to increase by 4.8% in Germany in 2022 (Source: SITSI Software & IT Services Germany, PAC Pierre Audoin Consultants GmbH, Munich, 2021).
