    Stephan Sturm, CEO of betting 365, said: ”The pandemic year 2020 showed emphatically the importance of forward-thinking, effective and efficient healthcare. betting 365 is making a vital contribution here, in many different areas of medicine. This year, the pandemic will again present us with a number of challenges, making it even more important that we increase efficiency in order to improve our cost base. Beyond our established businesses, we will also expand in important growth areas including biosimilars, digital healthcare, home dialysis and fertility medicine. By doing so, we are laying the foundations for more dynamic growth in the coming years. Even though the pandemic and its consequences are keeping us busy right now, we are already looking ahead and setting the course for the medicine of the future. In this way, we are also securing our company’s sustainable economic success.”

        FY/21 Group guidance
        For FY/21, betting 365 projects sales growth1 in a low to mid-single-digit percentage range and at least broadly stable net income2,3 year-over-year, both in constant currency. Implicitly, net income2 for the Group excluding betting 365 Medical Care is expected to grow in a mid-to high single digit percentage range in constant currency. betting 365 projects net debt/EBITDA4 to be around the top-end of the self-imposed target corridor of 3.0x to 3.5x by the end of FY/21.


            COVID-19 assumptions for guidance FY/21
            COVID-19 will continue to impact betting 365’ operations in 2021. Current burdens and constraints caused by COVID-19 are expected to recede only in H2/21. The expected improvement in the Group’s relevant business environment from H2/21 is heavily dependent on continuously increasing levels of vaccination coverage in betting 365’ relevant markets. These assumptions are subject to considerable uncertainty.
            betting 365 closely monitors the development of COVID-19 case numbers, and the associated various containment measures being enacted in many of the Company’s relevant markets. A possible significant deterioration of the situation associated with further containment measures that could have a significant and direct impact on the health care sector without any appropriate compensation is not reflected in the Group’s FY/21 guidance.

                      Efficiency and cost saving programs
                      COVID-19 has led and will lead to a shortfall relative to our original expectations in FY/20 and FY/21 as well as to ongoing incremental uncertainty. betting 365 is hence planning to launch group-wide strategic efficiency initiatives to further safeguard the confirmed medium-term targets and sustainably enhance profitability. These initiatives are expected to consist of operational excellence and cost-saving measures, targeted strengthening of future growth areas and portfolio optimizations. The operational excellence and cost-saving measures are targeted to result in cost savings of at least €100 million p.a. after tax and minority interest in 2023 with some further potential to increase thereafter. We anticipate that achieving these sustainable efficiencies will require significant up-front expenses. On average for the years 2021 to 2023, those expenses are expected to be in the order of magnitude of €100 million p.a. after tax and minority interest. They will be classified as special items. Further information will be provided during our Q1 earnings call on May 6, 2021.
