Munich, March 22, 2019 - According to preliminary figures, Allgeier SE (ISIN
DE000A2GS633, WKN A2GS63) recorded double-digit growth in total revenues,
value creation and earnings in fiscal year 2018 (January 01, 2018 - December
31, 2018). Compared to the forecast published in the ad hoc release of
December 11, 2018, the preliminary figures for the full year 2018 for the
Experts segment show a lower level, while the Enterprise Services and
Technology segments are in the range of the forecast.

Business development in continuing operations

Overall, the Group's total operating performance in the 2018 financial year
rose year-on-year to EUR 690 million (previous year: EUR 579 million),
representing growth of 19 percent. According to preliminary figures, Group
value creation rose by 24 percent to EUR 195 million (previous year: EUR 157
million). Adjusted Group EBITDA (EBITDA before effects that from a business
perspective are extraordinary or relate to other periods) amounted to EUR 41
million in the reporting period, 39 percent above the comparable figure for
the prior year (previous year: EUR 29 million). Group EBITDA amounted to EUR
30 million (previous year: EUR 26 million) and EBIT to EUR 16 million
(previous year: EUR 13 million).

In an "as-if" analysis, in which the companies acquired in 2018 are included
in the Group figures for the full year 2018, adjusted Group EBITDA amounts
to EUR 45 million and Group EBITDA to EUR 34 million.

Key balance sheet data as of December 31, 2018

The Allgeier Group had cash and cash equivalents of EUR 77 million at its
disposal at the end of the 2018 financial year (previous year: EUR 53
million). Preliminary current and non-current financial liabilities amounted
to EUR 182 million at the balance sheet date (previous year: EUR 110
million). The preliminary balance sheet total at the end of 2018 was EUR 476
million (previous year: EUR 338 million).

Outlook for the 2019 financial year

The planning for the 2019 financial year envisages Group revenue growth in
the region of 15 to 20 percent with an EBITDA margin of between 6.5 and 7
percent. The forecast made in the ad hoc announcement of 11 December 2018 is

The spin-off of the Allgeier Experts segment (see ad-hoc releases of July 9,
2018 and January 31, 2019) remains the goal. However, the weaker performance
of the segment in 2018 compared with the original planning and the currently
increased uncertainty on the capital markets create greater uncertainty for
the timing of implementation. The Management Board has therefore decided not
to present this segment separately as a discontinued operation in the
consolidated financial statements for 2018.


All IFRS figures mentioned in this release relate to continuing operations.
All business figures for the 2018 financial year are preliminary and have
not yet been conclusively audited by the Group auditor. The statements for
the 2019 financial year represent future expectations based on the present
planning, the occurrence of which cannot, however, be expected with
