Ausblick auf das Geschftsjahr 2020
Die Weltwirtschaft ist seit Beginn des Jahres 2020 als Folge des neuen
Corona-Virus und der zu seiner Eindmmung beschlossenen Manahmen sowie der sich
anschlieenden weltweiten Rezession deutlich in Mitleidenschaft gezogen.
Aufgrund der zunehmend globalen Ausbreitung des Virus ergeben sich weltweit
negative Auswirkungen auf Produktion und Nachfrage, deren genaue Abschtzung
derzeit nicht mglich ist. Das Corona-Virus ist in allen Lndern, in denen die
Unternehmen der Oetker-Gruppe ttig sind, angekommen. Ausgangsbeschrnkungen,
die Schlieung beziehungsweise starke Einschrnkung des Betriebes von Hotels,
Restaurants und Gaststtten hinterlassen ihre deutlichen Spuren in den Absatz-
und Umsatzberichten einzelner Gruppenunternehmen, die entweder diese Firmen mit
Speisen und Getrnken beliefern oder – im Fall der Oetker Collection – selbst
betreiben. Da immer mehr Menschen gezwungen sind, zuhause zu bleiben, ergeben
sich andererseits positive Effekte bei den Gruppenunternehmen, die Produkte fr
die husliche Zubereitung und den huslichen Verzehr herstellen. Allerdings
drfte die Corona-Krise insgesamt deutliche Auswirkungen auf das Ergebnis der
Oetker-Gruppe haben, auch wenn alle Unternehmen versuchen, den Erlsausfllen
durch Kostenreduzierungsmanahmen entgegen zu wirken. Die Gruppenleitung ist
aber zuversichtlich, dass die Gruppe dank der Bearbeitung vielfltiger
Sortimentsbereiche und Absatzkanle in der Lage sein wird, die Krise zu meistern
und, auf einem stabilen Fundament aufbauend sowie dank der strategischen
Weichenstellungen vor und in der Krise, den eingeschlagenen Wachstumspfad weiter
Vor dem Ausbruch des Corona-Virus sah die Umsatzplanung ein moderates Wachstum
der Umsatzerlse vor, das sowohl auf organischem Wachstum als auch auf
akquisitionsbedingten Umsatzzuwchsen beruhte. “Wir sind zuversichtlich, dass
wir in der Oetker-Gruppe auf dem Fundament unserer wertebasierten
Unternehmenskultur mit Solidaritt, Zusammenhalt und Teamgeist diese schwierige
Zeit gemeinsam meistern werden, um mit Ergreifen der in den Zeiten des Wandels
sich bietenden Chancen die Weiterentwicklung unseres Unternehmens
voranzutreiben”, so Dr. Albert Christmann abschlieend.
