- Positive development in Czechia, Mexico and China 
- High level of new business underpins our solution expertise in electrification, safety and comfort for the mobility 
of the future 
Oberkirch, May 10, 2021 - With today's announcement on the first quarter, PWO is confirming the preliminary figures 
communicated on April 23, 2021. We have had a good start into the new fiscal year. Our locations in Mexico and China 
were strong contributors to this positive performance. 
The Czech location also increased its revenues. Despite expenses associated to the current site expansion, EBIT before 
currency effects remained at a high level in the first quarter. At the German and Canadian locations, revenues and EBIT 
before currency effects were below their respective levels in the same prior-year period. In Germany, we are rapidly 
implementing a comprehensive package of measures to strengthen the location's competitiveness and to facilitate future 
growth. In Canada, we can already foresee an improvement in business performance thanks to the start of series 
We achieved the following key figures for the Group: 
Revenue: EUR 110.2 million (p/y: EUR 108.8 million) 
EBIT before currency effects: EUR 5.7 million (p/y: EUR 6.8 million) 
EBIT including currency effects: EUR 5.9 million (p/y: EUR 6.1 million) 
Net income for the period: EUR 4.1 million (p/y: EUR 3.5 million) 
Earnings per share: EUR 1.32 (p/y: EUR 1.11) 
Some prior-year figures have been adjusted due to a change in accounting. 
We are especially satisfied with the high level of new business of EUR 135 million in the first quarter of 2021. This 
again underscores our outstanding solution expertise for the trends of electrification and safety as well as comfort 
for the mobility of the future. Larger contract volumes relate to air suspension components for various premium class 
vehicles of a renowned international manufacturer. These components will be produced in Oberkirch. 
The expansion of our Czech location is progressing rapidly, particularly following an additional order for the 
production of instrument panel carriers at that location. This is an example of our continuing growth strategy of 
supplying an ever broader range of products to existing customers. We are also pleased that we will start supplying a 
customer's all-electric touring sedan, which is one of the flagship vehicles of its model range. 
Despite the uncertainties resulting from the possible effects of the pandemic, we are confident that we will be able to 
report further technologically sophisticated new orders from existing and new customers in the course of the year. We 
are thus focusing on a rapid recovery and the ambitious medium-term growth of the Group.
