Nanogate Pushes Ahead With Implementation of the Future-Oriented NXI Program, With One-off Expenses in the Low Single-Digit Million Range



- Sites in North Rhine-Westphalia will be combined and restructured



- Annual savings potential in the millions



- Realignment of engineering expertise in the Group, keeping in mind increasingly challenging market environment



Göttelborn, Germany, June 11, 2019. Nanogate SE, a leading global technology company for design-oriented, multifunctional components and surfaces, is pushing ahead with the implementation of its future-oriented NXI program and, in a more demanding market environment, accelerating the realignment of the Group sites in North Rhine-Westphalia.



The Group companies Nanogate PD Systems GmbH (Bad Salzuflen), Nanogate Goletz Systems GmbH (Kierspe) and Nanogate Vogler Systems GmbH (Lüdenscheid) will be combined operationally and strategically, allowing them to more effectively focus on the market and share resources and capacities. They are also focusing on more profitable orders, optimizing existing production and purchasing processes, streamlining management and personnel structures and, as previously announced, centralizing and realigning engineering capacities throughout the Group. Nanogate estimates additional one-off restructuring costs in the low single-digit million range, which will have a negative impact on EBITDA in the 2019 fiscal year.



Nanogate is thus preparing for changing market conditions, particularly in the European automotive industry. In view of recent disappointing economic data and corresponding signals from the automotive industry, there is growing uncertainty in terms of planning related to possible decreases in production and delays in rollouts of new series. Even though Nanogate has received plenty of new orders in the area of new mobility and is currently preparing for the launch of new products - most of them starting from 2020 - negative industry-specific effects in the current year cannot be ruled out. Following the establishment of key conditions in recent weeks, Nanogate is accelerating the implementation of its future-oriented NXI program with the realignment in North-Rhine Westphalia.



Ralf Zastrau, CEO of Nanogate SE: "The new business continues to develop in a positive direction and contribute to a growing order base. Despite the increasing challenges, the current market environment also offers Nanogate significant opportunities. We"re working on achieving our growth targets in industrial business and, as an innovation partner, are supporting the current transformation in the automotive industry. While our strategic prospects are very attractive, we want to push ahead with the implementation of our future-oriented NXI program, also keeping an eye on upcoming major orders. This is designed to make our company simpler, faster and more international. Major contributions to annual increases in efficiency planned for the future are compounded by this year"s higher one-off expenses."
