HÖRMANN Industries GmbH (corporate bond, WKN: A2TSCH) today published its financial results for the first three months of 2022. In the reporting period, the Group's sales decreased year-on-year from EUR 138.2 million to EUR 127.0 million. The decline in sales mainly resulted from the Automotive division, which was impacted in the first quarter of 2022 by the effects of the war in Ukraine as well as the COVID-19 pandemic and related supply shortages of electronic components. As a result of a lack of cable harnesses from Ukraine, the plants in Gustavsburg and Banovce, Slovakia, which focus on truck components, had to sharply reduce their production as customers of the HÖRMANN Group had to cease production. Overall, sales in the Automotive division fell by EUR 8.6 million compared with the same period of the previous year, from EUR 88.6 million to EUR 80.0 million. In contrast, the Communicatio division got off to a good start in the new 2022 financial year after a very good year in 2021 and achieved sales of EUR 35.0 million (previous year: EUR 34.1 million).
