ecotel presents half-year figures: continued significant improvement in revenue
Düsseldorf, August 5, 2021
The first half-year 2021 has been very successful for the ecotel Group. Sustainable and profitable growth continues in the »ecotel Business Solutions« and »easybell« segments. With gross profit of € 21.8 million (+25 %) the Group achieved EBITDA totaling € 8.0 million (prev. year: € 4.9 million). This corresponds to an increase of 62 % compared to the first half-year of the previous year. On the basis of these developments and the continued overall good business prospects for financial year 2021, the Management Board has upwardly adjusted the EBITDA forecast to € 15 - 16 million.
Consolidated profit: € 1.8 million / € 0.52 per share
Financial and balance sheet figures: Substantial increase in free cash flow and net financial assets
Development of the segments
In the first half-year 2021 the segment achieved increases of 5 % in revenue to € 24.0 million (prev. year: € 22.8 million) and of 19 % in gross profit to € 13.7 million (prev. year: € 11.5 million). The gross profit margin in this segment therefore increased to 57.0 % (prev. year: 50.6 %).
After deducting operating expenses, primarily for personnel and other operating expenses, the segment achieved EBITDA of € 3.7 million (prev. year: € 2.0 million). This corresponds to an increase of 83 % compared to the first half-year of the previous year.
nacamar and ecotel Wholesale segments: Scheduled developments
Upward adjustment of forecast:
For the »ecotel Business Solutions« segment, the forecast provides for revenue in a corridor of € 47 to 50 million, with a continuing slight increase in the gross profit margin and therefore in gross profit. The »easybell« segment expects revenue between € 24 and 26 million, and the »nacamar« segment € 2.0 to 2.5 million.
EBITDA is expected to be within a corridor of € 15 to 16 million. For the »ecotel Business Solutions« segment the Management Board expects EBITDA in a corridor of € 6.5 to 7.5 million, for the »easybell« segment in a corridor of € 6.5 to 7.5 million, and for the »nacamar« segment between € 0.5 and 1.0 million. In the reporting for the first quarter 2021 the Management Board assumed EBITDA at the upper end of the corridor of € 12 to 14 million for financial year 2021.
In preparing the original forecast for 2021 the Management Board had taken into account uncertain circumstances that could result from the Covid-19 pandemic. So far these circumstances have not occurred to the extent expected. The new factors of uncertainty in planning due to the flooding situation experienced by some of our customers have been taken into account in the current forecast.

GBC im Fokus
IGEA Pharma N.V. Realignment to CBD extraction
The goal is to become the quality and cost leader in the field of CBD in Europe. To this end, a GMP pharma compliant plant is being built in Switzerland. The supercritical CO2 extraction process is to be used to achieve the highest standard of quality. The CBD market is growing strongly and with the focus on quality leadership and pure extraction, IGEA Pharma's new business model should be able to occupy an attractive niche market. With the proprietary supercritical CO2-extraction technology, other markets such as vanilla, rose or rosemary can be developed in the medium term. Based on our DCF model, we have determined a fair value of € 1.05 (CHF 1.13) per share and assign a BUY rating.
