GK Software - Delay to the publication of its financial statement

Disclosure of an inside information acc. to Article 17 MAR of the Regulation (EU) No 596/2014, transmitted by DGAP - a service of EQS Group AG.


The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.




GK Software SE will probably only be able to publish its annual accounts for the 2019 financial year at the end of May 2020. The delay has been caused by the enormous restrictions on the preparation work that are due to the current corona crisis. In the end, this has made it impossible to complete the consolidated financial accounts on time. During the course of this process, a new discovery was made only yesterday evening related to the valuation of pension provisions and it has not been feasible to resolve this by today. As a result, it is possible that EBITDA could decline by up to EUR 1.4 million compared to the provisional figures that were announced.
