Sustainable profitable growth as an expert in photonics

Photonics is a key technology for the 21st century and makes significant contributions to increasing efficiency, protecting the environment and conserving resources. Within this dynamic environment, Jenoptik, as an expert in photonics, wants to continue its profitable growth and gradually become a globally leading, pure photonics group. We primarily target sectors advancing the trends of digitalization, health, smart manufacturing and mobility.

With the new Agenda 2025 “MORE VALUE” Jenoptik is focusing on sustainable profitable growth in photonic core markets

Camera focus

With its new growth agenda, Jenoptik will further accelerate its transformation into a globally leading, pure photonics group. The core of the “MORE VALUE” agenda is the group’s focus on the three high-growth future markets of semiconductors/electronics, life science/medical technology and smart mobility.

Jenoptik expects substantial organic revenue growth from this, which is to be supplemented by further acquisitions. Taking into account potential divestments (incl. VINCORION) and acquisitions, Jenoptik expects average annual revenue growth of around 8 percent, or around EUR 1.2 billion by 2025.

An improved product mix with a successive increase in the proportion of higher-margin products is expected to bring an additional boost in profitability to an EBITDA margin of around 20 percent. The ROCE (without goodwill) is expected to reach approx. 20 percent.

Outlook for the fiscal year 2022

Financial targets

Outlook for 2022: Revenue growth to 930 and 960 million euros and EBITDA margin of 18.0 to 18.5 percent

On the basis of the good performance in the first half of 2022 and the well-filled project pipeline, the Executive Board is raising the full-year guidance for 2022 for the continuing operations. Revenue of between 930 and 960 million euros is now expected (previously revenue growth of at least 20 percent / 2021: 750.7 million euros). EBITDA is also anticipated to increase significantly compared to the prior year, excl. one-off effects (2021: 125.2 million euros), with the EBITDA margin improving accordingly to between 18.0 and 18.5 percent (previously around 18 percent / 2021: 16.7 percent (excl. one-off effects)). The forecast is in line with market expectations.

These growth assumptions, however, presuppose that geopolitical risks do not worsen further. This includes, among other things, the Ukraine conflict – with the sanctions that have been put in place and potential impacts on price developments, energy supplies, and supply chains – does not escalate further. Uncertainties also exist with regard to the development of the Covid-19 pandemic and continuing supply bottlenecks, although Jenoptik is confident of its ability to manage them.
