Lübeck, 20 December 2018 – The Executive Board of SLM Solutions Group AG („SLM“) is adjusting its sales and earnings guidance for the 2018 fiscal year and now expects sales in the double-digit percentage range below 2017 fiscal year´s numbers (82.5 million Euro) and a double-digit negative EBITDA-margin.
On 01 November 2018, a sales target in the range between 90 million Euro and 100 million Euro was communicated. On the one hand, call-off´s from framework agreements signed in 2017 have been delayed, on the other hand, the company would have to grant significant concessions on various contractual parameters in order to achieve the before mentioned sales target. These would be detrimental to the company's long-term interests and in the view of the Executive Board do not correspond to a sustainable corporate strategy.
