â € œIn the challenging conditions resulting from the corona pandemic, we achieved very good results in the first six months of the current 2020 financial year, â € says Axel Deininger, CEO of secunet Security Networks AG. â € œCompared to the general risks from the corona epidemic, the growth opportunities for secunet from the digitalisation surge in the context of the pandemic outweigh the prospects. This prospect and the still very high order backlog allow us to look to the second half of the year with confidence, â € said the manager.
The forecast for 2020 will be confirmed again by the company on Wednesday. secunet Security Networks expects sales of EUR 270 million and earnings before interest and taxes of EUR 48 million.
