Chairman of the Executive Board Christian Thönes: “DMG MORI benefits from its consistent realization of the strategic fit of automation, digitization and sustainability. After a strong first quarter 2022, we achieved new record figures for order intake and free cash flow in the first half-year – and this against the background of high volatility and a more difficult market environment. Based on this successful business development, we are raising our forecast for 2022 here.”
The global market for machine tools continued to be impacted by geopolitical factors. Global supply and material shortages, rising prices for raw materials, transport, logistics and energy as well as high inflation, the ongoing war in Ukraine and the lockdown in parts of China affected demand for capital goods. In this challenging market environment, DMG MORI achieved order intake of € 813.6 million in the second quarter and thus recorded the best second quarter ever in the company's history (+23%; previous year: € 658.9 million).
In the first half year, DMG MORI also reached a new record for order intake: orders increased by +34% to € 1,675.2 million (previous year: € 1,248.7 million). As a result, order intake in the first six months not only exceeded the pre-corona level 2019 (+19%; € 1,412.3 million) but was even +6% above the record figure of 2018 (€ 1,577.1 million). New machine business in particular performed well with +36% and reflected the increased demand for our holistic and sustainable automation and digitization solutions. Domestic orders rose to € 500.1 million (+31%; previous year: € 382.4 million). International orders increased to € 1,175.1 million (+36%; previous year: € 866.3 million). The share of international orders was 70% (previous year: 69%).
Strong first half-year 2022: The EBIT margin doubled to 9.1% (previous year: 4.5%). DMG MORI also achieved new record figures for order intake and free cash flow and is raising its forecast for 2022 here.
In the second quarter, sales revenues rose by +10% to € 562.6 million (previous year: € 511.9 million). In the first half year, sales revenues grew by +20% to € 1,123.6 million despite the continued difficult materials and logistics situation, which was further intensified by the lockdown in parts of China (previous year: € 933.5 million). The increase was due to the good new machine as well as the service and spare parts business. DMG MORI has so far been able to avoid serious production interruptions thanks to a stable, long-standing network with partners and suppliers. Domestic sales were € 365.9 million (previous year: € 299.4 million). International sales amounted to € 757.7 million (previous year: € 634.1 million). The export share was 67% (previous year: 68%).
The results of operations improved significantly: EBITDA rose to € 67.4 million in the second quarter (previous year: € 46.5 million). EBIT increased by +50% to € 45.7 million (previous year: € 30.4 million). The EBIT margin improved to 8.1% (previous year: 5.9%). EBT amounted to € 45.7 million (previous year: € 29.1 million). EAT grew to € 32.2 million (previous year: € 20.3 million).
In the first half year, EBITDA rose to € 140.4 million (previous year: € 74.2 million). EBIT improved by +141% to € 101.6 million (previous year: € 42.2 million). The EBIT margin doubled to 9.1% (previous year: 4.5%). EBT increased to € 101.8 million (previous year: € 40.6 million). The group reported EAT of € 71.8 million as of 30 June 2022 (previous year: € 28.3 million).
The financial position was also stable at a high level: free cash flow amounted to € 70.9 million in the second quarter (-4%; previous year: € 73.6 million). In the first half year, free cash flow rose to a new all-time high of € 126.3 million (+12%; previous year: € 113.2 million).
DMG MORI's success is an extraordinary team effort by our highly motivated employees, who work for our customers every day with passion and highly qualified know-how. As of 30 June 2022, the group had 6,726 employees, including 166 trainees (31 Dec. 2021: 6,821). The number of employees therefore remained nearly unchanged compared to year-end 2021. Personnel expenses amounted to € 288.3 million (previous year: € 262.3 million). The personnel ratio improved to 25.1% (previous year: 27.2%).
A complete success: From 9 to 21 May, the traditional Open House took place at DECKEL MAHO in Pfronten – more than 5,000 participants informed themselves live and digitally about the latest technological developments from DMG MORI.
DMG MORI offers holistic, integrated solutions – always in the focus: our customers. The high demand for our innovative, sustainable high-tech products as well as holistic automation and digitization solutions was also reflected at our traditional Open House in Pfronten. This industry highlight took place for the first time over two weeks – live and digital. DMG MORI presented innovative digital solutions for the future of manufacturing, our unique DMG MORI gear cutting solutions as well as 2 world premieres and 14 automation solutions, including 4 innovations: Robo2Go Max, MATRIS Light, PH Cell 2000 and PH 50. Automation is the key to more efficiency, more productivity, even faster amortization – and thus to greater competitiveness of our customers.
2022 continues to be marked by high volatility and uncertainty – impacted by the war in Ukraine, disrupted supply chains worldwide, the shortage of materials, high inflation as well as rising prices for raw materials, transport, logistics and energy. In addition, there are rising interest rates, which affect the financing of capital goods as well as a possible gas embargo with unforeseeable economic consequences for the industry.
DMG MORI benefits from its consistent realization of the strategic fit of automation, digitization and sustainability. We are strengthening our global presence with a new production plant in China. Holistic automation and integrated digitization solutions extend our core business with machine tools. We are further expanding the digital subscription business model PAYZR for Software-as-a-Service and Equipment-as-a-Service. With our global footprint and the extensive service offerings, we offer everything integrated, consistent and sustainable from a single source – worldwide! Progress through sustainable technology – this is what DMG MORI stands for.
Due to the successful business development, DMG MORI raises the order intake and free cash flow forecasts for the financial year 2022: We are now planning order intake of around € 2.7 billion (previously around € 2.5 billion). Sales revenues are further expected to be around € 2.3 billion. EBIT is to be unchanged at around € 180 million. Free cash flow is estimated at around € 150 million (previously around € 130 million). 2022 nevertheless continues to be challenging. Our forecasts remain subject to the provision that the global market and economic conditions do not change significantly.
