Interim Report Q2 2019: Strong performance across the group with 16% organic revenue growth in Q2. Guidance upgraded for GN Audio

  • GN delivered 16% organic revenue growth in Q2 2019. Revenue growth was 19% including around 3% impact from the development in foreign exchange rates
  • EBITA increased 16% compared to Q2 2018 driven by strong operational leverage on top of headwinds from the development in foreign exchange rates
  • EPS increased 9% compared to Q2 2018 and reached DKK 2.29
  • Strong cash conversion of 90% in Q2 2019
  • The financial guidance for 2019 – upgraded on August 21, 2019 – is confirmed

  • GN Hearing delivered a strong 8% organic revenue growth in Q2 2019 driven by the continued strong performance by ReSound LiNX Quattro. Revenue growth was 11% including around 2% impact from the development in foreign exchange rates
  • EBITA increased 8% to DKK 299 million in Q2 2019. The EBITA margin reached 18.9%, slightly lower than Q2 2018 as a result of an adverse development in foreign exchange rates and ongoing infrastructure investments
  • Free cash flow excl. M&A was DKK 290 million in Q2 2019 translating into a cash conversion of 97%

  • GN Audio delivered an outstanding performance with 26% organic revenue growth in Q2 2019 driven by very strong performance across the business. Revenue growth was 30%, including around 3% impact from the development in foreign exchange rates and around 1% impact from M&A
  • EBITA increased 29% to DKK 268 million in Q2 2019, including transaction related costs of DKK (7) million associated with the acquisition of Altia Systems. The reported EBITA margin of 18.3% reflects continuous leverage in the business off-set by an adverse development in foreign exchange rates and investments in future growth opportunities
  • Free cash flow excl. M&A was DKK 232 million in Q2 2019, translating into a cash conversion of 87%
  • GN Audio upgraded the full year guidance on August 21, 2019
