Revenues in the Plastics & Devices Division amounted to EUR 155.3m, which was slightly lower than the level reached in the prior-year quarter. On an organic basis - meaning without exchange rate effects - revenues increased by 3.0 %.

Compared with the prior-year quarter, the demand for plastic packaging and the syringes business developed positively. This positive development made a considerable contribution to the rise in adjusted EBITDA. The North America and Europe regions in particular recorded a year-on-year increase.

The demand environment continued to be challenging, but the Primary Packaging Glass Division still generated revenues on a par with the prior-year quarter. Adjusted for exchange rate effects, revenues were up by 3.2 % year on year. Excluding the Moulded Glass cosmetics business, which has been particularly hard hit by the Covid-19 pandemic, organic growth in the division was 8.1 %.

Development in the individual business units varied greatly.

Demand­ in the cosmetics business was lower than the prior-year quarter due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The pharma and food business was able to continue to grow year on year. The pharma business benefited particularly strongly from the growing demand for our biopharmaceutical solutions.

Adjusted EBITDA fell year on year by EUR 3.2m. This was mainly due to the planned and executed furnace construction at our plant in Lohr, which resulted in a temporary decline in EBITDA in the mid single-digit million range. Higher energy costs also had a negative impact on income. As in the prior-year quarter, an insurance reimbursement was made in the low single-digit million range in the first quarter of 2021 for the financial losses incurred in connection with the furnace damage at our plant in the US.

  1. Revenues by division include intercompany revenues.
  2. The change has been calculated on a EUR k basis.

In the Advanced Technologies Division, the increase in revenues was mainly due to the growing business with micro pump systems for the treatment of Parkinson's disease.

The development of adjusted EBITDA is to a certain extent also the consequence of the continuation of the development projects as planned.

The improvement in cash flow from operating activities was mainly due to the lower year-on-year cash outflow for current trade payables.

In addition to the scheduled higher capital expenditure in the Primary Packaging Glass Division for the modernization and automation of the production facilities, the net capital expenditure also includes the capital expenditure in capacity expansion of syringe production at our sites in Germany and in the Republic of North Macedonia.
