A successful beginning of 2017 for DMG Mori

DMG Mori started its 2017 successfully: order intake rose by 17% to € 693.9 million in the first quarter (previous year: € 591.6 million). At this, we reached the highest quarterly value in the company’s history. Adjusted for the effects from the realignment – among others, the changed sales and service structure in Asia and America – we even recorded a plus of 24%. Sales revenues reached € 533.9 million and were thereby slightly below the value in the previous year of € 541.4 million.

Adjusted for effects from the realignment, sales revenues are 4% higher than the comparable value of the previous year. Our earnings figures developed very positively: EBITDA improved by 15% to € 48.7 million (previous year: € 42.4 million). EBIT increased by 23% to € 34.3 million (previous year: € 28.0 million). EBT even rose by 28% and at € 33.0 million (previous year:
€ 25.8 million), it reached the highest value that we have ever achieved in the first quarter of any year. As at 31 March 2017, the group reports earnings after taxes of € 22.8 million (previous year: € 18.1 million). CEO Christian Thönes: “The best order intake und the best results confirm the successful implementation of the realignment.”

Order intake rose by 17% in the first quarter to € 693.9 million (previous year: € 591.6 million). At this, we reached the highest quarterly value in the company’s history. Adjusted for the effects from the realignment – among others, the changed sales and service structure in Asia and America – we even recorded a plus of 24%. Domestic orders amounted to € 208.6 million (previous year: € 199.0 million).

Expenses for research and development in the first quarter amounted to € 11.9 million (previous year: € 10.9 million). One core topic of our research and development is automation. Our goal for the future is to make it possible for every DMG MORI machine to be equipped with automation. With innovative software solutions we are shaping the future for Industry 4.0. We have already prepared our machine tools for digitization in recent years with Celos, the app-based control and operating software. With the founding of the start-up Istos we have expanded our digitization expertise. DMG MORI is specifically strengthening its future technologies in additive manufacturing. With powder bed selective laser melting we are now bringing the most important generative production processes for metallic materials together under one roof. For this purpose we acquired 50.1% of Realizer GmbH at the beginning of the year. This strategic acquisition is the perfect complement to our Advanced Technologies.

2017 is the year of innovations for DMG MORI: On 31 March 2017, the group employed 6,894 employees, including 278 trainees (31 Dec. 2016: 7,282 employees).

The global economy has stabilized despite political insecurities and gained momentum at the beginning of the year. Global consumption of machine tools according to the most recent forecast (April 2017) by VDW and Oxford Economics,
is to grow by 3.2% this year. up companies.
