Chief Executive Officer Dr Jens Bodo Koch and Chief Financial Officer Dr Björn Krönert commented:
Sales in Q1 2020 were €68 million, an increase of 16% compared to Q1 2019; this increase, together with positive effects from the restructuring and process optimisation programmes we initiated in 2018 and 2019, enabled the generation of €12 million EBITDA, more than triple that of Q1 2019. In February 2020, to ease compliance with certain loan conditions, we received an interest-bearing loan of €15 million from one of our main shareholders. Consequently liquidity improved against the year-end despite the high level of net working capital at the quarter-end, which was due primarily to the volume and timing of sales in the quarter resulting in a higher level of trade receivables.
In 2020, the Group has continued generating positive earnings after tax and, due to the encouraging order book and the ongoing optimisation programmes, we are positive that we have laid the groundwork so that our organisation could continue this trend.

Q2/2020 Guidance***): We currently expect to achieve slightly higher net sales than in Q1/2020 with EBITDA at a slightly lower level than in Q1/2020. Net working capital is currently expected to be at a similar level to Q1/2020; operating cash flow is currently expected to be significantly better than for Q1/2020.
