The preliminary 2012/13 figures published on 7 November 2013 have been confirmed. This SAP full-service provider improved its full-year sales figures for 2012/13 by 22% to EUR 186.3 million (2011/12: EUR 153.2 million). Gains were posted by all three pillars of its integrated business model, namely recurring outsourcing services (including software maintenance), consulting and SAP licenses. Sales revenues from outsourcing services rose 25% to EUR 86.8 million (2011/12: EUR 69.7 million) and now account for a 47% share (2011/12: 46%) of total sales.
The EBITA increased 63% to EUR 13.7 million. The EBIT clearly outperformed sales development by increasing 76% to EUR 10.5 million (2011/12: EUR 6.0 million). The EBIT margin was 5.6% (2011/12: 3.9%). The EBT was EUR 8.8 million (2011/12: EUR 5.0 million), which is a plus of 75%. Group net earnings totalled EUR 5.6 million for an increase of 33% over the prior-year’s figure of EUR 4.2 million, which included a final contribution to earnings in the amount of EUR 0.9 million from the discontinued operation. The equity ratio as at 30 September 2013 was an unchanged 35%. The headcount rose to 926 as at 30 September 2013 (30 September 2012: 712).
Based on these good results, and in addition to making investments in expanding the customer base to achieve greater growth, the management board and supervisory board have also decided to significantly increase the size of the dividend distribution to shareholders. Therefore, the recommendation will be made during the company’s annual general meeting, scheduled to be held on 27 March 2014, to distribute a dividend of 50 euro cents (prior year: 15 euro cents) per share entitled to dividends.
All for One Steeb AG will be releasing its final consolidated financial statements for the financial year 2012/13 as scheduled during its financial results press conference on 17 December 2013.
