• Orders at €24.8 billion, down 2% from the strong prior-year level as sharply lower volume from large orders in Mobility more than offset increases in the majority of industrial businesses, particularly in Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE); revenue rose 1%, to €20.3 billions
• On a comparable basis, excluding currency translation and portfolio effects, orders declined 4% and revenue was down 1%; the book-to-bill ratio was a strong 1.22 and the order backlog reached a new high at €149 billion
• Adjusted EBITA Industrial Businesses declined to €1.4 billion, due mainly to a loss in SGRE and market weakness for short-cycle businesses; Adjusted EBITA margin Industrial Businesses was 7.3%, held back by €0.2 billion in severance charges, which reduced Adjusted EBITA margin Industrial Businesses by 1.0 percentage points
• Net income declined 3% to €1.1 billion and included substantially better results outside Industrial Businesses compared to Q1 FY 2019; basic earnings per share (EPS) rose 6% to €1.33
“After a powerful finish in fiscal 2019, the first quarter started slowly as expected. The weak performance across our energy businesses reinforces our priorities. We confirm our full-year guidance and will list Siemens Energy on the stock exchange in September as planned. This is a major milestone in positioning Siemens for the future,” said Joe Kaeser, President and Chief Executive Officer of Siemens AG.
