Münster, February 08, 2021: Vectron Systems AG (Vectron), a leading provider of intelligent, digitized POS systems consisting of hardware, software and cloud services, with a focus on the catering and bakery sectors, has generated sales of around EUR 28.0 million in the business year 2020, according to preliminary calculations. Compared to fiscal 2019, this represents an increase of 11 percent despite the Corona pandemic. With sales of around EUR 7.8 million (Q4 2019 around EUR 7.7 million), the fourth quarter was very satisfactory from the company's point of view, despite considerable restrictions due to the second lockdown. Thus, Vectron landed within its own sales forecast (EUR 25.0m to EUR 29.0m) for the full year.Currently, Vectron's operational business is still hampered by the ongoing lockdown, as most of the businesses in the target sector gastronomy are closed. Despite these adverse circumstances, Vectron has started well into the new year 2021. With sales of around EUR 2.4 million, the company was even able to slightly exceed the January 2020 sales according to preliminary calculations (Jan. 2020 around EUR 2.3 million). The further course of the fiscal year 2021 depends mainly on the length of the lockdown. Management assumes that there will be strong demand for POS systems with the end of the lockdown, as the majority of businesses do not yet use the legally required technical security equipment (TSE) and therefore need to act urgently. Thanks to the company's balance sheet strength with an equity ratio (Dec. 31, 2020) of about 80%, Vectron is well prepared for the future. Investments, for example in the stock of POS systems, for the expected high sales have already been made. In addition, a loan with a volume of EUR 10.0 million was repaid as scheduled at the end of the business year 2020. Nevertheless, the company currently has liquid funds in the amount of EUR 10.9 million. Thus, Vectron considers itself well positioned not only to master the current situation, but also to fully benefit from the expected boom after the end of the Corona pandemic.About Vectron:With more than 225,000 installations, the listed Vectron Systems AG is one of the largest European manufacturers of POS systems.
