EQS Group AG increases forecast for FY 2020

Munich - 4 August 2020

EQS Group AG (ISIN: DE0005494165) raises its FY 2020 forecast as a result of better than expected EBITDA development during the first half year of 2020. According to preliminary figures, revenue has increased on an adjusted basis by 21 percent to € 18.5 million and EBITDA has increased to € 3.0 million (previous year € 150,000). One of the main reasons for this jump in earnings has been discipline around costs as a preventative measure during the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly in the areas of personnel and marketing. While the growth related to COCKPIT applications was as expected, there was an increase in demand for our digital IR services which led to stronger revenue growth than previously forecast.

Adjustment to the FY 2020 forecast

The adjusted increase in revenue which was originally forecast to be 10 to 20 percent can now be more specific, ranging from 15 to 20 percent. The EBITDA forecast of € 3.5 million to € 4.5 million has been increased to € 4.0 million to € 5.0 million. The ARR number, which estimates the contractually newly concluded recurring business volume, has remained the same with an estimate of € 4.5 million to € 5.5 million. The number of new customers (SaaS) is slightly lower than previous forecast, at 300 to 350 customers instead of 320 to 400.

The 2020 half-year report will be published on 14th August 2020 at 8.00am (CEST). The executive board will explain the business results on 14th August 2020 at 11.00am (CEST) during a video webcast which will be held in English. This will be broadcast live online at www.eqs.com.
