Annual report 2022

Despite major external challenges, 2022 was another very successful year for Jenoptik. The strategic focus on the growth markets semiconductor & electronics, life science & medical technology as well as smart mobility is paying off. Accordingly, Jenoptik has set itself the goal of further improving its key financial figures in 2023. The company is on the right path to achieving its medium-term goals defined in the “More Value” strategic agenda by 2025. This development is accompanied by a clear commitment to sustainability.

Fiscal year 2022 in brief:

  • Jenoptik performed outstandingly in fiscal year 2022, with growth driven by its photonics business, especially in the semiconductor equipment sector. Revenue in the continuing operations grew by 30.6 percent to 980.7 million euros (prior year: 750.7 million euros).
  • With an equity ratio of 50.4 percent Jenoptik continues to have very solid financial and balance sheet ratios.
  • With our products and solutions we contribute as “enabler” to increase the efficiency and precision of our customers' products and processes as well as to a better conservation of resources and more sustainability. Jenoptik is thus making an important contribution to meet social and climatic challenges.
  • Based on the good order intake, the high order backlog, and good ongoing developments in the core photonics businesses, especially in the semiconductor equipment sector, the Executive Board of JENOPTIK AG is confident of further profitable growth in the fiscal year 2023.

"The very positive development in revenue and EBITDA margin is an indication that our focus on specific growth areas in the photonics market is not only strategically but also economically correct. Thanks to well-established relationships with our customers and suppliers, but also due to our focus on demanding photonic applications, we have developed a certain resilience."

More Value

With our “More Value” growth agenda, we want to accelerate the transformation of Jenoptik into a pure, globally leading photonics group. This means that we will continue to focus more strongly on three high-growth markets of the future – semiconductor & electronics, life science & medical technology and smart mobility. We expect this to generate substantial organic revenue growth which will be supplemented by further acquisitions, but does also not exclude possible divestments. By 2025, we plan to increase revenue to around 1.2 billion euros and the EBITDA margin to around 20 percent.

With this positive development, we want to create “more value” for all our stakeholders.

"In many respects, 2022 was a highlight. We exceeded our own targets, in some cases significantly, margin, and achieved new records in terms of both order intake and revenue. As CFO, my focus has always been on Jenoptik's financial and balance sheet health. We see good opportunities to further improve our profitability. Jenoptik is very well positioned for the future."
