  • 1st quarter 2021: Sales +28 percent, EBIT over € 15 million
  • Strong growth of sales and earnings continues

Hamburg, 15 April 2021. The wine-trading group Hawesko Holding AG (HAW GR, HAWG.DE, DE0006042708) announced today that the operating result (EBIT) of the group in the first quarter (1 January to 31 March) of 2021 will amount to more than € 15 million, almost quadrupling the figure for the previous year (same period last year: € 3.9 million). Sales revenues in the same period grew by approximately 28 percent to around € 159 million (previous year: € 123.8 million).
The course of the rest of the financial year is very much dependent on the duration and form of the measures to combat the COVID 19 pandemic, but also on consumer reaction following its easing. Against this background, it is currently not possible to make a reliable forecast of business performance for the remainder of the fiscal year.

Thorsten Hermelink, CEO of the Hawesko Group, comments, “We are extremely pleased that we were able to seamlessly build on the strong business performance of 2020 in the e-commerce and retail segments in the first quarter of 2021. Our diversified business model and our retail and e-commerce expertise allow us to successfully navigate through the risks and opportunities of the pandemic in this particular environment.”

A detailed analysis as well as the quarterly statement to 31 March 2021 will be published on 12 May 2021.
