Forecast Adjustment

Basler AG increases sales expectation and profit forecast for financial year 2020

Ahrensburg, December 8, 2020 - BASLER AG, the leading global manufacturer of industrial cameras and vision components, adjusts its sales and profit forecast for financial year 2020 upwards today.

Management further increases the sales of Euro 165 million originally expected for financial year 2020. Already at the beginning of November, the group increased it to the upper end of the forecast corridor. Henceforth, the group expects a sales corridor of Euro 169 million to Euro 171 million for the current financial year.

As a result of the increased sales, the EBT margin is also expected to increase. The forecast for the EBT margin increases from 10 % to 11 - 12 %.

This very positive development is due to increasing incoming orders in the past weeks and the related sales in the fourth quarter of the financial year. Furthermore, Covid-19 related risks in the supply chain and the production were successfully avoided by the company.
