Earnings Release and Financial Results Q4 FY 2021: Stellar performance and successful start as a focused technology company

Outlook

Our outlook for fiscal 2022 is based on continuing healthy growth in global GDP, albeit with slowing momentum, and our expectation that the challenges to our businesses from COVID-19 and supply chain constraints will ease during fiscal 2022. With these conditions and given our very strong fiscal year 2021, we expect our industrial businesses to continue their profitable growth.
For the Siemens group we expect mid-single-digit comparable revenue growth, net of currency translation and portfolio effects, and a book-to-bill ratio above 1.
Digital Industries expects for fiscal 2022 to achieve comparable revenue growth of 5% to 8% and a profit margin of 19% to 21%, including known headwinds of up to two percentage points associated with the strategic transition to software as a service (SaaS) in parts of its large software business.
Smart Infrastructure expects for fiscal 2022 comparable revenue growth of 5% to 8%. The profit margin is expected to be 12% to 13%. 
Mobility expects for fiscal 2022 comparable revenue growth of 5% to 8%. The profit margin is expected to be 10.0% to 10.5%. 
We expect this profitable growth of our industrial businesses to drive an increase in basic EPS from net income before purchase price allocation accounting (EPS pre PPA) to a range of €8.70 to €9.10, up from €8.32 in fiscal 2021. We assume that rigorous execution of our portfolio optimization strategy will contribute similarly as in fiscal 2021, when we generated €1.5 billion in net income from the sale of our Flender business, divestment of our stakes in Bentley Systems, Inc. and ChargePoint Holdings, Inc., and revaluation of our stake in Thoughtworks Holding, Inc. 
This outlook excludes burdens from legal and regulatory matters.

We achieved a very successful start as a focused technology company. In a challenging environment, we have won market share and clearly exceeded our net income guidance. This momentum will continue in fiscal 2022. We’re ideally positioned to support our customers and benefit from the major growth drivers of digitalization and sustainability. We have the right strategy and – above all – the best team. I’m personally very grateful for the outstanding dedication of our team worldwide.”

Roland Busch, President and Chief Executive Officer of Siemens AG

With a record-setting free cash flow, strong revenue growth and high profitability at the same time, we once again demonstrated the performance capabilities and resilience of Siemens. “Our shareholders also benefit from this successful performance. With a very attractive dividend, a strong stock price development and our new share buyback program, we continue to offer a highly attractive total shareholder return.”

Ralf P. Thomas, Chief Financial Officer of Siemens AG

This document contains statements related to our future business and financial performance and future events or developments involving Siemens that may constitute forward-looking statements. These statements may be identified by words such as “expect,” “look forward to,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “believe,” “seek,” “estimate,” “will,” “project” or words of similar meaning. We may also make forward-looking statements in other reports, in prospectuses, in presentations, in material delivered to shareholders and in press releases. In addition, our representatives may from time to time make oral forward-looking statements. Such statements are based on the current expectations and certain assumptions of Siemens’ management, of which many are beyond Siemens’ control. These are subject to a number of risks, uncertainties and factors, including, but not limited to, those described in disclosures, in particular in the chapter Report on expected developments and associated material opportunities and risks of the Annual Report, and in the Half-year Financial Report, which should be read in conjunction with the Annual Report. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, events of force majeure, such as pandemics, occur or should underlying expectations including future events occur at a later date or not at all or assumptions prove incorrect, actual results, performance or achievements of Siemens may (negatively or positively) vary materially from those described explicitly or implicitly in the relevant forward-looking statement. Siemens neither intends, nor assumes any obligation, to update or revise these forward-looking statements in light of developments which differ from those anticipated.

This document includes – in the applicable financial reporting framework not clearly defined – supplemental financial measures that are or may be alternative performance measures (non-GAAP-measures). These supplemental financial measures should not be viewed in isolation or as alternatives to measures of Siemens’ net assets and financial positions or results of operations as presented in accordance with the applicable financial reporting framework in its Consolidated Financial Statements. Other companies that report or describe similarly titled alternative performance measures may calculate them differently.

Due to rounding, numbers presented throughout this and other documents may not add up precisely to the totals provided and percentages may not precisely reflect the absolute figures.
