Buttenwiesen, 30 July 2021 - SURTECO GROUP SE, holding company for leading national and international 
surface-technology brands, succeeded in continuing to increase its sales revenues in the second quarter of 2021.The 
strongest quarterly sales in the company's history so far in the first quarter of 2021 were once again exceeded in the 
second quarter with sales of EUR 189.4 million. Overall, Group sales in the first half year of 2021 increased by 27 % to 
EUR 377.9 million compared with the year-earlier amount and thereby outperformed the level before the COVID-19 pandemic. 
In spite of a strong increase in the cost of raw materials, which could only be partly passed on and with a time lag, 
earnings before financial result and income tax (EBIT) at EUR 38.9 million were 170 % above the year-earlier value of 
EUR 14.4 million and also significantly above the pre-crisis level. Consolidated net profit rose by 165 % to EUR 25.7 
million (2020: EUR 9.7 million). Consequently, the company is now expecting sales above EUR 700 million for 2021 as a whole 
(previous target: EUR 650 to 675 million) and EBIT above EUR 52 million (previously: EUR 47 to 52 million). 
The improvements were generated from all segments of the Group. Decoratives, the Group's biggest segment, increased 
sales from EUR 214.6 million in the previous year to EUR 274.5 million in the first half year of 2021. EBIT improved by 220 
% to the current level of EUR 33.3 million. After Profiles was already able to buck the trend in the previous year of the 
COVID-19 pandemic with rising sales, half-year sales increased by 36 % to EUR 67.3 million and EBIT went up by 29 % to EUR 
6.6 million. Technicals achieved sales of EUR 36.2 million (2020: EUR 32.9 million). EBIT rose by 78 % to EUR 3.2 million. 
"After the best quarter in the company's history at the start of 2021, the second quarter was impacted by severe 
increases in the cost of raw materials and insufficient availability. As a result of the early introduction of 
countermeasures and the continuing good demand, we see it possible to achieve sales and earnings above our original 
targets for the year," commented Wolfgang Moyses, Chairman of the Management Board of SURTECO GROUP SE.
