Schrobenhausen, Germany - According to the preliminary business figures available as of today, BAUER AG (ISIN: 
DE0005168108) concluded the 2020 year with better earnings figures than anticipated, and the EBIT in particular 
significantly outperformed the last issued forecast as well as the market expectations. Total Group revenues were 
somewhat lower than the latest published expectations. In the financial year gone by, the BAUER Group was significantly 
affected by the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic primarily in the Construction and Equipment segments. 
Nevertheless, performance was better than anticipated during the last weeks in particular, especially in the Equipment 
The last forecast issued by the Group for the 2020 financial year expected total Group revenues of around EUR 1.5 
billion, EBIT approximately the same as the previous year (2019: EUR 22.5 million) and negative earnings after tax that 
were nevertheless anticipated to be significantly better than the previous year and better than EUR -20 million. 
Based on the preliminary calculations currently available, which have yet to be audited, the BAUER Group achieved Total 
Group revenues for the 2020 financial year of about EUR 1.4 billion, EBIT of about EUR 56 million and earnings after 
tax of about EUR -8 million. 
It should be noted that the calculation of EBIT was adjusted based on a recommendation from the German Financial 
Reporting Enforcement Panel (Deutsche Prüfstelle fur Rechnungslegung, DPR e.V.) and also includes the share of the 
profit or loss of associated companies accounted for using the equity method, since the 2020 annual financial 
statements. Without this adjustment, EBIT would be about EUR 46 million and thus also significantly higher than the 
last issued forecast and the market expectations. 
The Group's order backlog performed very well, at approximately EUR 1,160 million at the end of 2020 (previous year: 
EUR 1,027.6 million). Net debt also continued to improve significantly. 
The complete and audited business figures for 2020 as well as the forecast for the 2021 financial year will be 
published on April 13, 2021. 
The methods for calculating the total Group revenues can be found in the notes to the 2019 Annual Report on p. 94:
