Outlook

exceet started the financial year 2022 without continued operating business.


While GS Swiss PCB AG and exceet Secure Solutions GmbH have been divested in 2021, Lucom GmbH Elektronikkomponenten und Systeme is still classified as discontinued operations (assets held for Sale). A structured sales process started and depending on the demand a sale is expected during 2022.


Currently the operating result 2022 (EBIT) is dependent on the administrative costs for the holding companies and significantly from contributions of any new investments in 2022. The overall performance of the exceet Group (including discontinued operations) will be affected by the operative performance of Lucom GmbH Elektronikkomponenten und Systeme until divestment plus the potential gain of its divestment.


Due to the high cash reserve from the divestments, exceet is currently enforced to pay administrative expenses to the banks, which will increase the interest expenses and impact the net result.


The continued business currently comprises only the holding companies. For these companies exceet Group plans a loss of about EUR 1.5 million without costs related to planned investments and divestments.
