Weimar, 21 December 2023 – IBU-tec advanced materials AG (“IBU-tec”, ISIN: DE000A0XYHT5) is reducing its revenue and earnings expectations for 2023. Sales for the current financial year are now expected to be between EUR 48.0-48.5 million, with EBITDA projected to be in the range of EUR 2.0-3.0 million. The company had initially projected sales of EUR 62-64 million and EBITDA of EUR 6.5-6.8 million. IBU-tec remains confident that the sales and earnings targets of the IBU2025 strategy for the year 2025 are attainable. The reason for the forecast adjustment for 2023 is the weak industry environment in the chemical and glass industries, which has significantly impacted the IBU-tec subsidiary BNT. Unfortunately, the planned major order for the IBUvolt 400 product in the battery sector could not be fulfilled. IBU-tec anticipates significant growth in the battery sector in the coming years, thanks to the strategic expansion of its product range. The new battery products from IBU-tec boast superior features and a wider range of applications. They are set to hit the market in Q1 2024. The Board of Directors of IBU-tec will provide more information in January 2024.
