SGT German Private Equity – Profitable again in the first half of 2023
Frankfurt/Main, 18 September 2023 – SGT German Private Equity (SGF), a listed private equity asset manager, provides a preliminary estimate for the first half of 2023.
The company expects 1H2023 revenues of just under 5 million EUR and a slightly positive result (preliminary unaudited estimates, IFRS cons.). Almost all of the 1H2023 revenue and about 1.8 million EUR profit come from the PE Asset Management segment, while the Investment segment posted a loss of about 1 million EUR. It includes the Heritage VC portfolio of the subsidiary German Startups Group VC and a private equity investment of the parent company. The latter has recorded an increase in value of another 8%. SGT German Private Equity's equity as of June 30, 2023 amounts to approximately 98 million EUR or 2.12 EUR per share.
The average number of shares in 1H2023 was 49.5 million. After redemption of 3.5 million shares in May 2023, 46.3 million shares are still outstanding as of June 15, 2023.
Management expects the second half of 2023 to be significantly more profitable than the first, and that the full-year profit forecast of 15 cents per share can be achieved in the second half.
SGT German Private Equity has again paid a dividend in 2023 and plans another public share buyback offer in 4Q2023. In 4Q2022, the company had bought back 3.5 million shares in a public tender offer at a stock price of 2.00 EUR and, together with the dividend paid, distributed 16 cents per share in cash to its shareholders in 2022.
