through further company acquisitions in 2019. This suffered losses in sales

Deconsolidations, especially Essmann beverages in the beer and

non-alcoholic drinks, opposite. The development of currency rates had in the

Dr. Oetker including Coppenrath & Wiese generated sales in 2019

in the amount of EUR 3,345 million and was thus able to grow significantly by 12.3 percent.

Adjusted for the effects of changes in the scope of consolidation and exchange rates, the growth was

4.5 percent. Both companies thus continued to be challenging

Overall, the economic and market environment is encouraging.

Adjusted growth was also achieved in 2019 through several acquisitions

added. Effective January 1, 2019, Dr. Oetker the takeover of

Confetti in Finland and Bagetid in Denmark. Both companies

operate an online platform for the sale of various baked and decorative items

well-known manufacturers to end consumers. In addition, Confetti has

two own stores and is a franchisor for five other stores.

With the takeover of the Alsa business in France, the Netherlands,

Belgium and Portugal on March 1, 2019 and in Morocco on October 1, 2019

could Dr. Oetker the first in the French baked goods and dessert market

Take a seat. In July 2019, the manufacturer Mavalrio was acquired

Cake and dessert designs for the Brazilian market and the

offers pan-American export market.

A major reason for the positive development of the area in the

past business year is the multitude of relevant innovations in all

brought German market, which both the consumer need for convenience

serves as well as the demand for one-person preparations. That too

weather-related for canned products a little below expectations.

Through the acquisition of Alsa, the region of Western Europe primarily recorded in

France, but also growth in Belgium, the Netherlands and Portugal.

In addition, smaller acquisitions in new business models ensured

additional sales contributions in Western Europe. Despite adverse conditions in

Great Britain due to the multiple postponement of Brexit Oetker UK

Declining sales due to trade conflicts are accepted.

The sales growth in the Eastern Europe region was, among other things, by the

Development carried out in Poland, both in terms of cakes and

Dessert as well in the pizza category. In addition, Romania, Czech Republic

and Hungary also grow organically.

The national companies in Mexico and Brazil also showed encouraging results

Baking decor manufacturer Mavalrio. The Americas region recorded a total

a strong jump in sales compared to the previous year, also due to the year-round

Consideration of sales of the one taken over in the United States in October 2018

organic growth in India, South Africa and Korea. Add to that the

Growth effects from the acquisition of Tag El Melouk in

Egypt. In contrast, the distribution of new pizza products in Australia was still possible

not be built as planned. So Dr. Oetker’s sales in Australia

kept at the level of the previous year.

Investments in 2019 were EUR 109 million (EUR 96 million in the previous year)

at a still high level. The company is laying the foundations

for additional growth in the coming years and ensures that

The beer and non-alcoholic beverages business unit holds its own in

tense market environment

After the record year 2018, the Radeberger Group was able to

comparatively well in the tense market environment. In the

Business development should be noted that until March 1, 2019

fully consolidated companies of Getrnke Essmann at this time in

the joint venture concluded with the C. & A. Veltins brewery

were. The newly founded joint venture under the name German Drinks

Logistics (DGL) bundles the skills of the beverage and logistics specialists

The number of employees decreased particularly due to the

Intra-group disposals of Durstexpress and the deconsolidation of beverages

Essmann from 7,989 to 7,094 employees. Adjusted for inflows and outflows in

The scope of consolidation showed a slight increase in the number of employees

by 2.0 percent in 2019.

The development within the individual segments and brands was in the reporting year

heterogeneous. The national brands in the portfolio of the Radeberger Group, so

Radeberger Pilsner, Jever and Schfferhofer, recorded one overall

slight decline in sales compared to the previous year. Sales of the main brand

Radeberger Pilsner was able to recover in 2019 after the decline in the previous year

stabilize and was roughly at the previous year’s level. Jever’s sales rose

thanks to Jever Fun and Jever Fun Lemon by 1.2 percent, while at Schfferhofer

Wheat development was particularly affected by the mixed drinks.

This resulted both from the spring, which was less warm than in the previous year

as well as the increasing competition from nature cyclists. With the national

As expected, there was a decline compared to the previous year.

The export business saw a decline in volumes in the USA, Italy

and China not fully through growth in Canada, Australia and Namibia

bad weather and the increasing price war in food retail noticeably behind the

Expectations back.

The alcohol-free drinks have had the successful development of recent years

even without repeating the 2018 summer of the year in 2019

continued. Among other things, Selters benefited from the switch to

new glass reusable GdB containers.

The Radeberger Group’s distribution and trading activities win

increasingly important, which is reflected not least in the increasing contribution to earnings

also in the investments in new partnerships and companies of the

relevant business areas.

In 2019, the Radeberger Group’s investments exceeded EUR 93 million

the previous year’s value, partly due to investments in empties,

Delivery rights, software and various technical systems and machines.

Consumer insecurity both in Spain (Catalonia conflict) and

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

zu beschreiten.

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.
