SBO: Schoeller-Bleckmann Oilfield Equipment Aktiengesellschaft (SBO), a supplier of products and solutions used by the oil and gas industry for directional drilling and well completion applications, posted a sound first quarter of 2020. SBO's sales came to Euro 108.9 mn (-10 %), EBIT to Euro 12.1 mn (-40%) and profit after tax to Euro 8.6 mn.  "We started 2020 on a positive momentum. Bookings and sales were in line with expectations. However, the COVID 19 pandemic brought about a dramatic trend reversal for us, as it did for all other industries. While we are facing challenging times, we can draw on many years of experience in crisis management. As we have a sound balance sheet and virtually no net debt, we are well prepared to navigate through these difficult times", says Gerald Grohmann, Chief Executive Officer of SBO. The order backlog totaled Euro 116.4 mn at the end of March (31 December 2019: Euro 123.0 mn). "The current market environment has come over us most abruptly. However, it is a proven strength of our company to respond very fast to changing market conditions. This also includes curtailing spending instantly and pushing ahead with cost-cutting programs. Our extremely sound balance sheet helps us to remain fully functional in these difficult times and to make farsighted decisions with a view to recovery when the time comes. We are currently bracing for an extremely challenging year 2020", closes CEO Grohmann.

Semperit Group: In the first quarter of 2020, the Semperit Group, producer of highly specialised rubber products for the medical and industrial sectors, recorded a decrease in revenue by –6.5% to Euro 199.1 mn compared with the same period in the previous year. In the Industrial Sector revenue fell by –14.0%. In contrast, the Medical Sector achieved an increase of +8.4%. The decline in the Industrial Sector, which was largely based on the economic situation, was particularly attributable to the Semperflex segment, but also to the other industrial segments. EBIT (earnings before interest and tax) improved to Euro 9.8 mn in the first quarter of 2020 compared to Euro 7.8 mn in the first quarter of 2019. CEO Martin Füllenbach: “The drastic improvement in the Medical Sector is primarily the result of our tireless productivity enhancement measures and operational progress since the beginning of 2018. The effects of the significant increase in demand for medical protective gloves in connection with corona will for the most part only be reflected in future quarterly results. Füllenbach: ”Among other things, since March Semperit has supplied more than 60 million gloves to provide the medical personnel in Austria. “Supporting the Republic of Austria with medical protective gloves is of course paramount for us as an Austrian company with an Austrian core shareholder. This is why the implementation of the still valid strategic landmark decision to separate from the medical business will be delayed.”

Vienna Insurance Group: Vienna Insurance Group (Wiener Versicherung Gruppe) achieved a positive business development in the first quarter of 2020. Total premium volume reached Euro 3.1 bn in the first three months of 2020. This corresponds to an increase of 7.2% compared to the first quarter of 2019. Premium increases were achieved in all lines of business in the first quarter of this year. Single premium in life insurance recorded double-digit growth (+29.8%). The Austria and Poland segments recorded the highest absolute premium increases. The first quarter of 2020 closed on a positive note, with a somewhat lower profit (before taxes) of Euro 121.9 mn (-4.4%) and a slightly higher net profit (after taxes and non-controlling interests) of Euro 85.8 mn (+2.8%), despite initial dampening effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. “We recorded a very good start into the year, with a significant increase in premiums. This was due to strong performance in the months of January and February 2020 that significantly compensated for the initial effects of the restrictions implemented starting in the middle of March in the battle against COVID-19. Premium losses due to a decrease in new business will primarily be noticeable starting in the second quarter of 2020 and are expected to continue for the remainder of the financial year,” explained CEO Elisabeth Stadler.
