Carl Zeiss Meditec AG achieves significant growth in revenue and profit in fiscal year 2018/19

Jena, October 2, 2019

Carl Zeiss Meditec AG (ISIN: DE0005313704) has achieved revenue of approximately EUR 1,459 million in fiscal year 2018/19 (PY: EUR 1,280.9 million), based on preliminary data, and has thereby significantly exceeded the previous forecast of EUR 1,350 to EUR 1,420 million. This corresponds to revenue growth of approximately 13.9% vs. the previous year's value. After adjustment for currency effects[1], growth amounts to around 11.9 %.

From today's point of view, the company expects a strong increase in operating earnings[2] (EBIT) and anticipates to significantly exceed the previous forecast of an EBIT margin[3] between 15.0% to 17.5% (PY: 15.4%) as well as current market expectations estimated at around 18.5%.

Full results for business year 2018/19 will be provided on Dec 6, 2019.

As already reported after nine months 2018/19, management expects no further sustainable increase in EBIT margin in fiscal year 2019/20, partly due to planned strategic investments in research and development.
